PROGRAM PREVIEW
December 18, 2018
(Please note there is not a meeting on Wednesday, December 19.)
 
 
On Tuesday, December 18, Rotarians will gather together with spouses and friends for the special fun of the annual Holiday Party.  The traditional event will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the Lamar University Reception Center on the eighth floor of the Mary & John Gray Library.  The food will be delicious, and the fellowship and fun is guaranteed to be even better.   
 
The Rotary Chorus, with professional accompaniment and direction, will perform some holiday selections for your enjoyment, and the traditional announcement of the Club's President Nominee will be made at this event. 
 
Remember when the annual Holiday Party also included gift-giving for a local community need?  This year is no exception to that tradition.  We will be collecting items needed by the Beaumont Rainbow Room for children (infants to 12 year olds) who have been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect.  The agency needs new items of clothing (matching top and bottoms, please), formula and baby food, small stuffed toys, children's books, blankets/quilts, Pak-n-Plays, car seats, toiletries, infant/toddler booster seats, cleaning supplies, and Walmart gift cards.  Donations do not need to be gift-wrapped, and will be accepted at the Holiday Party  or in the Rotary Office (Suite 213 in the Elegante Hotel) until 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
 
This Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 18 is replacing the Wednesday, December 19 meeting.  Therefore, there will not be a meeting at the Eleganté on Wednesday, December 19.

March 7, 2018 was certainly a day to remember for our Club. 
 
The person who led the way for women to be admitted as full and equal members of Rotary International, and who went on to become the first woman to hold the position of President of a Rotary Club anywhere in the world visited the Rotary Club of Beaumont to tell her story.  What a privilege it was to be with her and hear of the legal struggle that took place just a little over thirty years ago!
 
Thank you to Rebekah Maxwell for service as Chair of the International Women's Day program, and to Becky Mason for being the impetus behind Dr. Whitlock's visit to Beaumont and for handling the necessary arrangements.  Many thanks to all the Rotarians who served on the 2018 International Women's Day committee.
 
Thank you to Paula Bothe and Four Alarm Productions for recording the event so others might enjoy it and so our members can re-visit the occasion again and again.
 
And now, welcome to the March 7, 2018 meeting of the Rotary Club of Beaumont:
