Good news came from several members:

Vickie announced that her company TPI Staffing is in the final steps of becoming certified with the Department of Homeland Security, an arduous process that will benefit them immensely in the long run.

Gary told us that the Rotary District 5890 Gulf Coast Leadership Institute this weekend was excellent. About 1/3 of the clubs were represented. Gary also praised Glen Rowe's presentation and hoped that he would share it with the club in the near future.

Alan revealed that over the weekend, his son, Michael, turned nine and Alan was relieved that the backyard campout turned out great.

Gwen recalled that we all had fun at CAM Friday and at the Mexican Food Night. See accompanying picture of Gwen and Keith at La Hacienda having a great time. Wish you'd been there!

John shared the news that a customer of his is running for judge, Glenn Devlin, Republican for 313th District Court.

David's niece who had the H1N1 virus is better as is his wife, Mary, who is up and around after her back trouble.

Keith had a great weekend. He and Sandra went to Blanco's and heard a western swing band. On Saturday, he went hunting with his son who said it was one of the best weekends he'd ever had!

D. Ray informed us that the Longhorns played well on Saturday night and offered (for money) not to sing the fight song.

Jim followed up with the news that the Aggies beat the Utah State Aggies 38 - 30. His wife is leaving for Europe while they are moving into their new house, but Jim gets his revenge by leaving for New York when she returns, so she will get to unpack what he has had to pack. Seems fair.
