Full Steam Ahead!  We are just a little over 75 days from the end of our 20-21 Rotary Year and from all appearances we are headed for a strong finish. Take a minute and congratulate yourself and the Rotarians next to you for continuing forward in friendship, fellowship, and service against a pandemic and significant adversity. You’ve earned more than congratulations.
And now we have just what we need in time to truly make a great contribution, vaccines and States open for business. You can sense the mood change!  The Sporting Clays Fundraiser by Texarkana Sunrise last Friday was fun, well attended and raised plenty of money for reinvestment in the Texarkana and Nash communities. Its success is followed by the District 4 -way Speech Contest in Mt. Pleasant, Bullard’s 1st Annual Sporting Clay’s Event, Longview-Greggton’s PRCA Rodeo, South Tyler’s Reed Franklin Spaghetti Supper, and our District PolioPlus “Fun” Raiser on May 22nd at Rowdy Ranch in Gilmer. Come out, have fun, support Rotary, the Foundation, PolioPlus, and your communities.  See you there!
