Today Rotary Club of Mineral Wells welcomed new member Jennifer Russell, center.
 
Jennifer is the business development specialist and marketer at Palo Pinto Nursing Center. She was sponsored into the club by Kimbo Gill Stack, right, administrator at Palo Pinto Nursing & Rehab Center. Also pictured is club President Karyn Bullock.
 
Welcome to Rotary International Jennifer. We look forward to our fellowship, camaraderie and together serving our community.

David Adams has always had an eye for fashionable eyewear. Over the last three years, he has developed an eye – and a talent – for creating art. Specifically, stained glass art.

The owner of Adams Fashion Optical and his wife, Allison, own a large historic residential property on N.W. 4th Avenue that features stained glass. When he need some of it repaired, he took it to an artist in Bridgeport.

Watching her work, and the tools she was using, David realized this was something he believed he could learn and do – and so at the age of 55 David suddenly became a stained glass artist.

 
 

Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday received a program on Mineral Wells Nursing and Rehab. Located adjacent to Palo Pinto General Hospital, MWN&R provides short- and long-term care, therapies and a host of care and respite services.

Program share Meagan Martin invited the team from MWN&R to speak, which included her mother, Shelley Owen, Area Director of Operations. Social worker Amy Tunnel and facility Administrator Cody Akridge.

The facility is especially known for keeping its residents active and engaged.

Mineral Wells Nursing and Rehab is part of the Creative Solutions in Healthcare family network, which includes more than 100 care facilities across Texas. Learn more about Mineral Wells Nursing and Rehab at https://mineralwellsnursing.com/.
