During the weekly meeting of June 27th the Rotary Club of Paris United inducted several new members.  Outgoing President, Andy Cobb, had instituted a corporate membership policy that invited current member’s coworkers under their business name to attend Rotary meetings, programs, and service projects. The club also raised over fifteen thousand dollars with their first ever BLINGO event fundraiser. The proceeds were used to continue the success of their many programs such as providing dictionaries to all third grade students of Lamar County public schools and a project that allows 2nd grade students to receive a free dental exam by local Dentists. Rotary also provided five high school seniors scholarships to attend PJC this coming Fall. The club is also involved in several of the local non-profit organizations such as the Salvation Army, Dylan’s Drivers, and many others. Incoming President Alex Fowzer has stated that his main goals are to increase the Paris Rotary club’s membership, service projects, and to develop an additional project that will benefit the community of Lamar County. Alex invites anyone interested in joining the Rotary Club of Paris United by attending their weekly lunch programs every Thursday at noon in the ballroom of the PJC student center.
