The November 8th meeting was a historic occasion. This joint meeting between these two clubs was a first. Speaking to an audience made up of Rotarians from two different clubs, the Executive Director of the Camp Bowie district shared some great ideas for the future of Camp Bowie District. Every chair in the room was filled at the Ridglea Country Club where the event was held.

Sometimes the best laid plans of our bi-weekly meetings go arigh. We had planned District Governor Dan Steele as our guest speaker for our September 27th meeting. Unfortunately,  DG Dan is sidelined due back surgery. Area Governor Bud Walker stepped in to give a wonderful presentation.
 
 
 Introduced by Immediate Past President Theresa Hocker, Bud, to quote member Ellen Kurtzman, provided a "fine speech where we are learning much about ways to improve the club".
 
There may be some irony in this photo of Chris Cobler in front of the Rotary Four Way Test banner. He is a well respected journalist that exudes the tenants of our Four Way Test of the things we say and do.
 
Speaking at our September 13th meeting, the Publisher and Editor of the Fort Worth Report provided a frank journalistic assessment of public issues related to Fort Worth and Tarrant county.
