Rotarians,
 
I hope you’ve been enjoying the pleasant weather this week.
 
I’ll keep it short(er) in this email. First, a note about lunch. Since we’ve been at the Hilton, we’ve run out of meat a couple of times. Because of that, we had one meeting where the staff was serving meat. They don’t want to do that and we’d rather they not, but that means we’ll have to be mindful of the portions of meat we’re taking. That’s how they base how many people to prepare for.
 
The rodeo is quickly approaching. As Gene recently stated in an email, selling or buying business packages is one way to help attendance. You should have also received your tickets. If not, see Ray Wright.
 
If you have rodeo signs, Tyler Rainer will be collecting those at his office. It’s the Edward Jones office on Airline by Loop 281.
 
A couple of important upcoming dates:
 
April 6: District 5830 Assembly in Mount Pleasant
April 12, 13: Longview PRCA Rodeo
 
It is Charles Rader’s week to bring the prize for Rusty’s Raffle, and it’s Randall Latch’s week to get us lined out for the song, Pledge, prayer and 4-Way Test.
 
We’ll have a double-barreled program today with a short rodeo update from Chair Ray Wright and Past Chair and President-Elect Karen Maines. Then, Randy Harris is going to have some fun with a  little Rotary trivia as we also take a look at the importance of Rotary.
 
See you there.
 
In service,
Scott
