State Representative James Frank updated Wichita Falls Southwest Rotary members on the most recent legislative session in Austin.
 
Hearing information from someone that was there can be an informative regardless of the politics. We in Rotary pride ourselves in being inclusive of all regardless of religion, politics, race, culture or ethnic background and that includes allowing ourselves to be informed by federal, state and local leaders when we have the opportunity. Thank you State Rep James Frank for your presentation.
Dusty Sternadel of NSpire provided some inspirational information for running a business in todays economy.
 
A mother of 5 kids, and owner of 2 local businesses, one of them with an excellent 11 year financial advisor portfolio she was able to provide perspective for our members that can be applied to their businesses and their personal lives. So, what is the Trillion Dollar issue? We won't spoil it for those who have not heard Dusty speak. but just know there are a lot of zero's. For our enlightened members, they now have at least one solution.

SW Rotary's 2021 Clay Shoot held June 12th continues to be regarded as one of the best area clay shoots.
 
77 shooters came out for a great time. Each shooter received a shell bag sponsored by American National Bank, and Embossed Leather key fob from Lost Pinguin Leather. Woodco furnished a hamburger lunch before the shoot and everyone enjoyed a Ribs Inc dinner sponsored by Business Solutions Technology Group after the shoot.
 
 
The 2022 shoot is set for April 30th, 2022 - put it on your calendar.
Rotary’s seven areas of focus, include “Disease Prevention and Treatment.”  SW Rotary approached our leaders in the County and Wichita Falls government with the idea. Rotary Club of Southwest Wichita Falls Club President worked with other area Rotary Clubs and the community to implement the initiative which include a great TV interview on channel 3.
 
 
Yard Signs and Banners with the message, MASK UP Wichita County, You can Save a Life," are available for order by  credit card at shop/mask-up-initiative-sw-rotaryOrders will be delivered to homes and businesses by Road to College participants with profits going towards Zavala in support of the Road to College programs. 
 
The Rotary Club of Southwest Wichita Falls is partnering with the other Rotary and Service Clubs in Wichita County in an initiative to encourage the wearing of masks in advance of reaching vaccination levels supportive of “Herd Immunity”.
 
Why are we doing this project?
Citizens are getting tired of following the protective measures: wear a mask, social distance, wash hands frequently and minimize our movement in public to necessary activities. COVID-19 will continue to spread till we reach “Herd Immunity” that comes as 75% of the population has been vaccinated. If we wear a mask we can prevent, “People are going to die that don’t need to die.”
 
Mask Up & Save a Life!
