Plainview Rotarians held their weekly meeting last Tuesday and honored their guests. Once again, Caleb Haines’ Rotary Student of the Month for September attended the meeting. In addition, Jose Sevedra is the father of the student of the month for December, as well as Blanca and Gilbert Garcia, the parents of Bianca Garcia, the student of the month for October, attended the meeting.

The club featured October Students of the Month, Mason Gregory from Plainview Christian Academy (PCA), Diana Guerrero from Plainview High School and Bianca Garcia from Plainview High School. Mason’s parents are Matthew and Jenifer Gregory. He is most proud of his study abroad activity with Abilene Christian University. He was one of a select group of 26 high school students from an application pool of more than 500 students. He studied at Oxford University while in England. They studied the problems of global communications and media. The next newsletter will spotlight Diana Guerrero.

This week’s program was presented by Dr. Bonnie Pendleton, one of Rotary’s District 5730 co-governors, served as district governor in 2020-21 and will serve as senior governor again in 2023-24, provided the program on the vision of Rotary International. She stressed that Rotary’s top priority is to eradicate polio. She mentioned that vaccine serum only costs 13 cents and a donation of $100 saves 2,300 lives, which equals 6 lives a day. Additionally, Dr. Pendleton discussed key dates and events. The RYLA will be held June 5-9, 2023. The Rotary Youth Exchange for 15-17 year olds will resume (exchange student) as well as the Rotary Friendship Exchanges. There was additional discussion about district grants from the annual fund to help feed first responders and food banks. Finally, the District will organize a Ping Pong fundraiser for the Projects.

After the meeting, the club laid off and turned to the community to find ways to show Service Above Self.
