Club News & Stories
Let’s Grow Crazy’s Amy Lane (pictured left) and Michelle Burns updated Mineral Wells Rotarians today on the progress and success of the farmer’s market, located at 500 S.E 2nd Ave.
They also surprised the club with a generous gesture.
Michelle explained how the market has grown over its first two years in operation. It began with 13 vendors, and now has more than 30, with just a handful of those artisans. That means the majority are vendors selling local products like breads, fruits and meats all produced or sourced within 80 miles of Mineral Wells.
The market is open 8 a.m.-noon the first and third Saturdays from April through October.
Brooke Barnett today brought Chip Hicks to talk to Rotarians about Friends of Mineral Wells Shelter Pets and the efforts of 16 volunteers to raise monies, awareness and dedicate their time and resources to helping Animal Shelter, Mineral Wells, TX and the stray animals that find their way to the shelter.
Chip said the volunteers last month donated a combined 400-plus hours to the shelter. He said nine volunteers use their personal vehicles and fuel to transport animals to rescue and adoption facilities and homes across the state. He said he has recently delivered animals as far aways as Wichita Falls and San Antonio.
He said the shelter friends group raised more than $37,000 for the shelter last year, all of which went directly to the shelter (as opposed to the city’s general fund) to help with the shelter’s operations and costs and provide fixtures and supplies the city’s shelter budget does not cover.
Rotary Club of Mineral Wells was honored to have three Texas Department of Public Safety troopers attend Wednesday's meeting and speak to club members.
Rotarian and Palo Pinto County Attorney Maegan Hodgkins Kostiha, far right, brought, from left, DPS K-9 Trooper Kristi Cooper, Trooper Travis Alewine and Trooper Trey Blue.
Trooper Blue talked about his role as a commercial vehicle enforcement officer and shared some of his favorite stories as a DPS trooper.
Thank you, troopers, and all law enforcement officers for your service to the public.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to focus on stopping the exploitation, neglect and abuse of society's most vulnerable. One way to do that is by ensuring those who abuse children are identified, arrested, prosecuted and punished in hopes they will not be able to harm another child.

That is where Children's Alliance Center of Palo Pinto County comes in. Its staff works with agencies to prosecute child abusers, and provides counseling and programs designed for early intervention and prevention.

Members of Rotary Club of Mineral Wells on Wednesday heard from Rotarian and CACPPC Executive Director Linda Porter-Bradford (pictured second from right), who has announced her retirement after eight years at the agency's helm. She brought her staff – Multi-disciplinary Team and Community Outreach Coordinator Sheree Patterson (right), Forensic Interviewer Kaitlyn Cothrum (second from left) and Family Advocate Kelli Montelongo – who each described their roles within the agency.

Porter-Bradford said CACPPC works with schools, law enforcement, courts and prosecutors to arrest and punish child abuse perpetrators. This often means difficult interviews with young victims, made more difficult because child abuse cases typically involve family members who have access to groom and gain the trust of their victims. Sometimes the abuse takes place continuously over months and years.

If you enjoy steak, burgers or brisket, do you give much thought to the quality of beef you are throwing on the grill or placing in the oven?

Campbell Decker (pictured above left with club President-Elect Mike Rankin) on Wednesday told Mineral Wells Rotarians that beefeaters should give more thought to their beef choices. While eating meat is good for you, eating high-quality beef that is 100% “grass-finished” is even better and healthier.

Campbell and his wife, Claire, operate local producer Native Beef TX. Their products are pasture-to-table steaks and grounds coming from Angus breeds organically raised humanely and purely on grass. No grains are used. They do not use antibiotics, vaccines, chemicals, or added hormones. No pesticides or herbicides are used on their pastures located north and south of Mineral Wells.
