Good afternoon, Rotarians,
 
Thanks again to Randy Harris for putting together a very nice program for last week's meeting that helped — I think all of us — learn a little bit more about Rotary and in a way that was fun. 
 
Ray said it with all kinds of enthusiasm last week: WHAT TIME IS IT? It’s Rodeo time, and we have just more than two weeks before it opens on Friday, April 12. It’ll be here before we know it. There's been a ton of work happening up to this point, and there will continue to be before it gets here. But it will get here, we'll be ready, and we've all been praying for good weather!
 
The next Rodeo meeting will be at noon Wednesday at the Rodeo Arena in the VIP area.
 
Rodeo Chair Ray Wright says there are still 25 Rotarians who have not picked up their tickets for the rodeo or bought a business or sponsorship package. We need 100 percent participation to make the rodeo as successful as possible, and business and sponsorship packages must be finalized by Friday to make it into the program.
 
Important (Rodeo and non-Rodeo) dates coming up:
 
  • April 6: Rotary District 5830 Training Assembly in Mount Pleasant. There’s still plenty of time to register.
  • April 12: Noon meeting will be at the Rodeo Arena.
  • April 12, 13: LONGVIEW PRCA RODEO
  • April 19: No meeting, enjoy your Good Friday.
  • April 27: Street cleanup. Meet at 8 a.m. at Pine Tree High School parking lot off Fairmont.
 
This Friday, it is Roger Sage Jr.’s week to bring the prize for Rusty’s Raffle, and it’s Mike Lewis’ week to get us lined out for the song, Pledge, prayer and 4-Way Test.
 
Our program will be Keith McIntosh, who has visited the club a couple of times as a guest of Dave Wright. McIntosh is the Executive Cardiology Services Director at Christus Good Shepherd Health System.
 
If you have signed up to help put out yard signs, Tyler Rainer will have them at the meeting Friday. Please get them there or arrange to pick them up from his office.
 
See you there.
 
In service,
Scott
