It was a late night Sunday evening for many a Rotarian, their families, and RYE host family members.  The first of our two new exchange students arrived at 11:19 PM from Germany, after 22 hours of travel.  Lisa was all smiles despite the very long day!  More pictures on the Facebook page.  Thanks, Coralyn Dillard, for being a youth exchange counselor.  Welcome, Lisa!

Don’t forget to sign up for Meals on Wheels . This is one of our easiest service projects and probably one of the most needed in our community. We have been doing this for many years and our community depends on us to do it. Service above Self, People Making the Difference, Be the Inspiration! And just in case you missed todays meeting 
 
Miss Wayland 2018, Ellen Hedlund, tells Rotary about how she got to Plainview from a small town in California. After a nation-wide search, Wayland won out over Baylor and TCU and all others. We are lucky she chose Wayland because we have been blessed by her presence.
 
Coralyn Dillard introduced Ellen who was joined by Nicole Adams, Assistant Coordinator of Student Activities at Wayland (and former Miss Wayland 2014).
 
Ellen displays the Rotary 4-Way Test coin that President Nominee Jay Givens gave her. Also a contribution to the Plainview Area United Way will be give in Ellen's honor.

Rotary Brags! Scott Franklin brags on the Flying Queens who are the winningest women's college basketball team in the wirld. They go for win 1,600 on Thursday. Dianne DeVos brags on Happy State Bank's Business After Hours on December 5. Regan Book Manning bragged on the French meal Maud cooked for Thanksgiving. Cynthia Gregory bragged on her new pet dog. Dave Sandahl bragged on the Plainview High Navy JROTC's 3rd place finish at a multi-unit competition in Wichita Falls.
All money "paid" for Brags goes to the Clubs efforts to support the Rotary International Foundation.   Thank You Charles Starnes for documenting the days activity. 
I cant tell who is having more fun, The Rotarians or the Kids???? Dictionary distribution kicked off at a couple campuses this morning and will continue through November and December. Sign ups will be coming out as each campus decided when they want the dictionaries to be delivered...
During the Rotary Foundation presentation today, Jay Givens mentioned that Amazon will contribute 0.5% of eligible purchases to your choice of charities through http://smile.amazon.com.  You must use that link to have the contribution made (not the normal www.amazon.com).  
 
When searching for the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International in the charity list, search using "Rotary Foundation Evanston" You can also use the District 5730 charity "Rotary District 5730 Charitable Foundation Inc."
