Hello Rotarians,
If you pass by Bill Owens and Loop 281, you might notice how nice the Rotary International sign looks there.
John Green sent these photos. He says Keith Bonds had the sign taken down and that an anonymous friend of Rotary paid to have it refaced, so it could be replaced looking bright and new. It also has the updated meeting locations for our club and the downtown club.
Here’s a look at the signs before and after.
And here’s a look at what the sign looks like hanging back in place.
Thanks, John, Keith and the unnamed friend of Rotary.
There are others that need similar attention, but it's great to see this one looking so sharp. 
Don’t forget, we have our street cleanup this Saturday. We’ll meet at 8 a.m. at the Pine Tree High School parking lot off Fairmont Street. We’re expecting to be joined by some of our Interact Club members.
A couple of other important dates:
  • Saturday, Feb. 23: District 5830 Foundation Dinner in Texarkana
  • Saturday, April 6: Districdt 5830 Training Assembly. This is usually the same weekend as the Rodeo. It’s not this year, so let me know if you are interested in going.
  • April 12, 13: Longview PRCA Rodeo. You better already have this one on your calendar.
Remember, you can follow Scott Forbes’ progress after surgery here:
Great to see he’s doing well, and thanks to Donna for the updates.
We're still looking for possible Rotary Youth Exchange host families. If you know someone who might be a good candidate, please let me know.
It is Judge Phillips’ week to bring the prize or Rusty’s Raffle. It was to be Merritt Grimm’s week to get us lined out for the song, Pledge, prayer and 4-Way Test, but he can’t make it this week. So, I’ll be looking for volunteers.
This week, we’ll hear from Karen Maines and others about how the trip with her, Donna Koerner and Tommy Warren went with six RYLA campers this past weekend. They had a cold weekend to be at RYLA!
See you there.
In service,
“Be the inspiration.”
