Lake Butler Rotary Club Meeting Review for Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Fried chicken, pulled pork, potato salad, cold slaw, tossed salad, and a strawberry gram dessert.

Ted Barber opened the meeting with a blessing; Carlton Faulk led the Pledge of Allegiance and Art Peterson stirred up our patriotism with “God Bless America”.

Club President Shane Collins asked Art Peterson, our Program Chairperson, to introduce fellow Rotarian Harvey Baxter. Before the introduction, Art prayed for Tommy Spires to get over the Covid-19 and for Nadine Faulk to become cancer free.

Art used the title “Mr. Rotarian” for Harvey. As a Rotarian, Harvey said he first got interested in international Rotary projects following a mission to Honduras. He designed a service oriented project in rural Guatemala that is sustainable. It was in February last year that many students received study guides. The Covid-19 shut down the schools and the books were not being used. Facilitators got the ball rolling and even used bull horns to pass out assignments in the locked down areas. Education is a major key that helps anyone get ahead and in Guatemala thanks to Harvey and other Rotarians many students are making a difference by helping their families and friends stay in school.

The Did You Know? Question was what 1792 historical US building has not found its cornerstone in 200 plus years? The answer is our Presidential White House.

Upcoming Rotary Program Chairpersons include: Jack Schenck-10/20, Russ Wade-10/27, Brad Whitehead- 11/3, Nancy Griffis- 11/10, Kaleb Archer- 11/17, Ted Barber- 11/24, and David Beatty- 12/1
