The Rotary Club of Paris United had a very enjoyable program during our meeting on Jan 31st presented by Debb Fleming and Student Team(s) from Crockett Intermediate School in Paris, TX.  “Paris Pride” is a program to increase access to Lamar County's history. The students are researching the history of chosen buildings and will link all our documented building's history with a QR Code attached to the building.  They are raising money to purchase brass plaques to put on 6 of the downtown plaza buildings with the name of the building in 1917. Paris United club members provided a donation of $296 to the program for the addition of brass placque(s) and QR codes to selected downtown historical buildings. 
Students working on Paris Pride (in red T-shirts) are Caleb Echols, Olivia Fitzgerald Cate Biard, Grant Frierson. Anna Grace Blassingame (blue T-shirt) spoke to us about Operation F.E.I.S.T.Y. Force (Females in Engineering, Innovation, Science, Technology, and You
