Taking some time out of a busy day with much going on, Mineral Wells Mayor Regan Johnson spoke at today's Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meeting, mainly addressing and taking questions regarding the current water situation following last week's historic winter storm.
 
Regan said hopes are a major pump repair at the treatment plant will be made and, with no further setbacks such as more equipment failure or new line breaks, the boil water notice could be lifted late this week.
 
Utility customers in the city and surrounding areas whose water supply corporations receive water from the city, have endured loss of water, low water pressures and boiling water or using bottled water as a result of the storm that left the area with below-freezing temperatures for a week, with temps falling two nights at or below 0 degrees Fahrenheit under a several-inch blanket of snow and ice.
 
Today’s Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meeting at Southside Church of Christ was another fantastic one and once-again very well attended.
 
Following lunch catered by Sadie’s Eats, the meeting kicked off with the announcement of four new members, including two in attendance, Cody Jordan and Connie Parker (large photo, center). Cody was sponsored into membership by President Tonya Gary and Connie was sponsored by Connie Ball. Two other members approved for membership during last week’s board meeting were Sabrina Sparkman and her husband, Allan, our third Rotary Club couple to join. We hope to formally welcome them into the club soon.
 
In the top left photo, Connie Ball was honored and received a pin from District 5790 Governor Nominee Dan Steele acknowledging her as a seven-level Paul Harris Society Fellow for her giving to the Rotary Foundation. This is an amazing accomplishment and level of giving. Congratulations and thanks, Connie.
 

 
If you live in Mineral Wells and Palo Pinto County and would like to know how soon you might get vaccinated for COVID-19 – the answer is to continue distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands because it might be a while. Even if you qualify for the initial doses.
 
Pictured above with this week's program chair Stacy Choate, Palo Pinto County Judge Shane Long was guest speaker at today’s Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meeting and spent much of his time discussing the countywide effort to combat, mitigate and vaccinate. Fortunately, cases are declining slightly. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services shows the county with 87 active cases and 306 probable cases. Palo Pinto General Hospital as of Wednesday reports 6,340 tests for COVID performed, with 4,894 of those negative. There are 52 virus-related fatalities for the county.
 
With a county population of about 29,000 and current allotments of just 100 doses per week, Long said one can see it might take a while to get vaccine into the arms of those who it. According to TDHHS, 901 county residents have received at least one dose and just 27 county residents are fully vaccinated. The judge said between the county’s and local DHHS’s online vaccination registration programs, some 4,500 county residents are registered and waiting their turns.
 
 
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!
