Arlington RC provides every student at Webb ES a book for their very own

story-thumbnail
 
Each year the Rotary Club of Arlington offers a book to every Webb Student.
 
 
Over two days each class is led into the school library and students choose their book. We then have them sign their name on a book plate, so everyone knows that this book is theirs to keep! I enjoyed my three hours there yesterday visiting with awesome, polite kids and dedicated teachers and staff at Webb Elementary.

Rotary Club of Arlington returns to in-person meetings at First United Methodist of Church Arlington

This historic photo showing our first time meeting again in person after the pandemic of 2020 wearing our masks and keeping apart!
 
 
OUR FIRST IN-PERSON MEETING OF THE YEAR was held at the church last Thursday; it actually felt like the first meeting ever! It was obvious that our Rotarians have missed other Rotarians. Even though everyone was wearing a mask, there were warm greetings and social interaction everywhere. As Pastor Chris said, changes will be coming step by step. This week, those that are vaccinated will not be required to wear a mask at our meeting. Hopefully, we will get to sit a little closer together too. As to serving lunch, we will have to wait a little longer. Right now it would be hard to predict how many will attend the in-person meeting, and hard to tell a caterer how many to prepare for.

Mayor Jeff Williams tells his club
about all the great things
happening in Arlington. 
 
Kurt Bartley introduced our speaker for the day, Mayor Jeff Williams. Williams complimented our club on our services and spoke about the recent energy outages and ERCOT. He showed us the storm recovery website: arlingtontx.gov/ stormrecovery.org. Here, one can learn about where to go to receive help with food, shelter, storage, insurance questions, and help with pipe damage. Williams mentioned that we didn’t open stadiums for warming centers because there was no guarantee that those places wouldn’t have a power outage. He was thankful to all those city workers who helped deliver water to hospitals and other rescue services, plus the workers at vaccination centers. City workers also helped apartment complexes with out-of-state owners deal with water/pipe problems. He was also thankful to our community for keeping us all informed about the state of our water, and the number for help is 817-459-6777.
