Plans for the Kingsville Record

In April, our local paper, the Kingsville Record, announced its new publisher.  Terry Fitzwater is new to our town, but well-acquainted with small-town publishing.  He will be speaking to us about his plans for this local landmark.

Kingsville Rotary Feeds First Responders
Our club pays for our luncheons in advance.  When stay-at-home orders were issued in March, that left some pre-paid meals.  To assist our local meeting place, and to provide for our local COVID-19 testing personnel, your Board of Directors voted unanimously to donate those lunches. 
Over several days in April and May, Kingsville Rotary fed the medical staff and Texas National Guard out at the testing site.
Interested in what your Board of Directors does?  Join them the first Monday of each month, details HERE.

Follow-up:  Peace Corps Evacuees
Remember, you saw it here first.
If you were fortunate enough to make our last meeting in April, you heard from two Peace Corps Volunteers evacuated from different parts of the world due to COVID-19.  San Antonio Express-News picked up the story of one of those volunteers.
