Good afternoon, Rotarians,
Enjoy this sunshine while it lasts.
We had a pretty weak showing at this past weekend’s street cleanup. Thanks to those who did make it. The weather was cool, but it wasn’t as cold as the previous time. Tyler Rainer, Colt Edwards, Chapin Miller, Dave Wright and Steve Pirtle were there. Thanks, y’all.  It was very nice to have four of our Interact members there to help. Let’s see if we can get more Rotarians next time.
Remember the District 5830 Foundation Dinner is Saturday in Texarkana. If you haven’t signed up, there’s still time.
Doug Barnard wanted to make sure the club was aware of an event coming this weekend hosted by the Texas Oncology Foundation. The Texas Oncology Foundation was the beneficiary of funds raised at Chicks N Chaps at last year’s Rodeo. The event is called Survive & Thrive, and is for cancer survivors, loved ones and caregivers. It’s on Saturday. Find more information here:
Longview Regional has offered the club a complimentary table at their Dine with Docs event next week. It’s Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. This isn’t a lot of notice. If you are interested, let me know by 8 a.m. Friday. They are tables of 10. If we get enough to fill most of it, we’ll take it. If not, we’ll pass.
It is Kari Pickering’s week to bring the prize for Rusty’s Raffle, and it’s Trey Hattaway’s week to get us lined out for the song, Pledge, prayer and 4-Way Test.
Our program this week is Kelly Hall, President/CEO of the Longview Chamber of Commerce.
See you there.
In service,
“Be the inspiration.”
