Good morning, Rotarians,
If you haven’t seen the most recent issue of Charm/View, the fashion spread in this edition features four of our club members along with information about the rodeo. Not to plug my employer, but Karen Maines, Chapin Miller, Kari Pickering and Tyler Rainer do look pretty sharp in the spread. It’s nice to get to spread the word about the rodeo, too.
Here’s a look:
Karen and Donna Sharp are headed to PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) in Dallas today for the weekend. They will surely come back energized about Rotary and full of ideas for the club. It'll be good to hear about that experience. 
We’ve been trying to get some host families for a 14-year-old German girl in the Rotary Youth Exchange, but we’ve come up short. The Gilmer club has two families ready to go and a third that is interested. They are going to take that exchange student this time around. I’m hopeful our club can make it work again in the future.
The District 5830 Training Assembly is April 6 at Mount Pleasant ISD. This is the first year in recent memory that it’s not on the same weekend as the Rodeo. If you’re interested in going, let me know. More information is here:
Remember, the Rodeo is April 12 and 13. If you don’t yet have a place where you’ll be working during the rodeo, please see Ray Wright.
It is Steve Pirtle’s week to bring the prize for Rusty’s Raffle, and it’s David Hayes’ week to get us lined out for the song, Pledge, prayer and 4-Way Test.
This week, we’ll hear from Steve Clugston, club member and superintendent of Pine Tree ISD.
See you there.
In service,
“Be the inspiration.”
