We had a great turnout for today's special visit from Gov. 
Roger D. Paschal and Asst. Gov. Joe Wilkinson.
 
We took a group "masked" photo to mark this moment in time. Roger also delivered flags marking our club's 100% membership support for the 
effort. Many members also enjoyed delicious lunch offerings catered by Roger and Joe received gits of Crazy Water and hand sanitizers from Palo Pinto General Hospital.
 
Thank you Roger and Joe for your visit and come back soon.
 
 

Today was a great one for Rotary Club of Mineral Wells as we welcomed two new members, recognized a Paul Harris Society achievement and heard an interesting and informative program.

It was also the best attendance since the club resumed weekly meetings in September.

The club today formally welcomed two new members, Meagan Ishmael and Myndi Brooke Muncy. Meagan is project accountant for Jacobs Engineering Group and who recently moved to Mineral Wells. She was sponsored for membership by Candi Wallis Harrison. Myndi is the new Main Street director for the City of Mineral Wells and was sponsored by Raymond Greenwood. We are excited to have these two dynamic ladies join our club!

 
Rotary Club of Mineral Wells on Wednesday welcomed Cody Jordan, right, of NSC Properties as guest speaker. She is pictured with club President Tonya Gary.
 
Cody gave members present updates on downtown projects, including the Crazy Water Hotel renovation, and some insights into what could be coming in the near future. Cody said there are a number of investors, including sports and entertainment figures, looking to invest in and bring new businesses to Mineral Wells in the form of breweries, sports bars and restaurants. She said in almost every case when they come to Mineral Wells they fall in love with the town's history, story and its setting in beautiful in northern Texas Hill Country.
 
We will hear more on these potential projects soon, and Cody said she might even bring one or more of those potential investors to future meetings. Thanks again, Cody, for stepping in last-minute for an under-the-weather Rose Jordan and giving us these exciting prospects and developments taking place.

Tommy’s Angel Tree is one of the great community projects anywhere, providing Christmas to less fortunate Mineral Wells-area boys and girls who otherwise might have no presents to open that special morning since 1992.
 
It takes a community to make it happen.
 
“I couldn’t do this without the community’s help,” one of Tommy’s Angel Tree Guardians Connie Parker told members of Rotary Club of Mineral Wells attending Wednesday’s meeting.
 
Connie is the primary force behind the annual gift-giving drive, helping coordinate sign-ups, putting up the angel trees and overseeing wrapping, bagging and delivery-day logistics.
 
 
Rotary Club of Mineral Wells today welcomed Jeremy and Magen Desnoyers, right, owners of Magpie Inn, the bed and breakfast formerly known as The Silk Stocking at the corner of N.W. 4th Avenue and N.W. 4th Street. Pictured with the Desnoyers is program chair Dianne Templar.
 
The Desnoyers acquired the property earlier this year from investor Mark Rawlings, a principal investor and construction manager for the Baker Hotel project.
 
Married 10 years, the Desnoyers previously managed a property in Fredricksburg before overseeing a bed and breakfast in Fort Worth. They were looking to purchase their own property and found Rawlings and the property in Mineral Wells. Mineral Wells always held a special place in Magen’s heart because it is where her “Nana” has lived most of her life. Nana’s nickname for Magen is “Magpie,” hence the inn’s new name.
 
If the fictional character Michael Myers in the "Halloween" movie series scares you so bad you wet your pants, this Michael Myers can help.
 
Just days before Halloween, Palo Pinto General Hospital’s new urologist Dr. Michael Myers was special guest and program at today’s Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meeting. He was introduced by today’s program chair Megan Hudson, marketing director for PPGH.
 
For those wondering why Dr. Myers looks like PPGH’s director of radiology and has the same last name, that is because Chuck Myers, D.O., is his brother.
 
Dr. Michael Myers received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Texas Christian University in 1989, and a Master of Science in Psychology from TCU in 1989. He then pivoted, going to medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio where he graduated in 2003. He then went to Tampa, Florida, and was a resident urologist at the University of South Florida before becoming its chief resident urologist for a year. He then went on to work for a hospital in Georgia before recently returning to North Texas taking the role running PPGH’s urology clinic.
