Longview-Greggton Rotarians,
 
Hope everyone is staying warm. If you’re not, at least we’ll be in the 60s by Friday. That should help.
 
If you missed last week’s meeting, you missed the induction of two new members. If you see Steve Clugston, left, next to Charles, or Eric Cedarstrom at a meeting, please introduce yourself and invite them to sit at your table. Great to have them!
 
 
We also heard from Dr. Ben Mack about his mission work in Guatemala.
 
Ten Rotarians – and one young helper – worked Saturday morning to do our part during the citywide Green & Clean. Thanks to those who were able to make it and brave the cold to do our part.
 
 
If you’re looking for another service opportunity, check with Colt Edwards about ringing the bell for the Salvation Army on Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Gilmer Road Wal-Mart.
 
Also, Mark Dulweber wanted to remind everyone that the Thanksgiving Food Drive is coming up, and that organizers there have a need for donations and volunteers. On Monday, Nov. 19th, three to six volunteers are needed to put together 1,300 boxes of food, and donations are welcome. The boxes will be handed out from noon to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20, and volunteers are welcome to come help.
 
If you haven’t , please RSVP for the Club Christmas party. It’s Friday night, Dec. 14, at the home of Michael and Julia Tubb, and it’s sure to be a great time. For more details, check out the flier.
