The dog days of summer have arrived with more heat to come! I hope everyone is looking forward to our meeting this Friday in Air Conditioned comfort at the Hilton Garden Inn. 
 
At last Friday's meeting, we were brought up to date on all things Parks by our own Scott Caron, Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Longview. Scott shared with the club the projects that came from the Comprehensive Plan adoption and passage of the Bond Packages, including expansion of the City's trail system, upgrades to existing parks, the status of Hinsley Park, and he answered questions from club members. Of course, Scott had to first be ribbed at bit by Randy Harris.  
 
This week, our program is the always popular Coaches Hour. The head football coaches from Longview, Pine Tree and Spring Hill will bring forecasts for their team's seasons, share strategies for success, and remind us all how difficult coaching teenagers can be. Somehow they manage to keep their sense of humor, but it is pre-season.  I predict a full house for this program.  See you there!
 
Karen Maines, President 2019-20
