Each year, Rotary Club presidents across the U.S. and around the world select a project the club and its members can support through grants using local club dollars that are then matched by Rotary International.

This year, Rotary Club of Mineral Wells President JJ Dugan wanted to help local homeless high school students. It was a matter weighing on his heart and mind after Rotarians the previous heard a program on homeless students.

For his president's project Dugan received club approval to provide financial support to those students in need and on Wednesday presented Mineral Wells High School counselors Hope Mesler, pictured center, and Stella Singleton, right, with a $4,000 check. Dugan submitted the project through a grant application that was approved for funding.


Amy O'Bannon, left, and Dorothy Clark told Mineral Wells Rotarians Wednesday about their CBD – cannabidiol – products that, when used, won't make you "stoned" but could help reduce or completely relieve a variety of medical ailments or issues.


They explained their Colorado-manufactured products – soft gels, lotions, salves, capsules, edibles and flavored tinctures – are legal in Texas without a prescription because, while they are made from hemp, they contain 0 percent THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Rotarian Christy Kik Dorr, right, spoke to Mineral Wells Rotary Club on Wednesday about the new location and opportunities for Cocoon Pregnancy Resource Center.
Dorr started the center in 2005 at Wolters Industrial Park before moving it to the church previously known as Leaning Tree Church, which today is Grace Church, off Old Millsap Highway. The church took over the center and did a good job continuing and growing the faith-based ministry, resource and outreach organization but needed to turn its operations over to someone else.


Rotarian and Mineral Wells Industrial Foundation Executive Director Steve Butcher said while much is being made of the changes and improvements downtown – and rightly so – he wants people to know about other positive economic developments taking place.

"Brett Hobson is right in the middle of it," Butcher told Mineral Wells Rotarians at the club's weekly Wednesday meeting at holiday Hills Country Club.

Comfort Experts-Hobson Heating & Air, which started in Mineral Wells five decades ago and is based in Weatherford, is returning to Mineral Wells in a big way with a new and unique residential trade school at Wolters Industrial Park.


West District Superintendent for the Central Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church Rev. Dr. Lisa Neslony, center, was today's speaker, sharing with Rotarians a mission trip to Kenya in January in which several people from Mineral Wells, including today's program chair and Rotarian Rev. Eric Douglas, pictured left.

Rev. Margie Holmes of Central UMC in Mineral Wells and First UMC Youth Director Hannah Newcomer were also among those who went on the mission trip.

Mineral Wells Rotarian Connie Ball attained her seventh Paul Harris Society level in foundational giving and was honored with the presentation of a new pin by club President JJ Dugan to commemorate her giving milestone.
A Rotarian becomes a member of the Paul Harris Society and reaches a new level with every $1,000 donated to Rotary International's Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants. Those dollars are used to improve life and living conditions for impoverished people around the world. The purpose of the Paul Harris Society is to honor and thank individuals for their generous, ongoing support of The Rotary Foundation.
Congratulations Connie on your unselfish giving to Rotary in support of its humanitarian missions around the world.

Kristy Trammell, RYLA Class 2011, was Wednesday's guest speaker for Rotary Club of Mineral Wells' weekly meeting at Holiday Hills County Club.

Along with being the granddaughter of Rotarian Connie Ball, pictured left and the program chair, Trammell is a May 2017 graduate of Abilene Christian University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science: Livestock Management and Production.

She is now with the USDA Farm Services Agency as a county operations trainee in Taylor County (Abilene).

Trammell talked about the agriculture products in Palo Pinto County and across the state. She said the county has about 47,000 heads of beef cattle. She said she enjoys working with commodity products such as grapes used in wineries and peaches and pecans grown in this area.

Also pictured is club President JJ Dugan.

Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meets every Wednesday at noon at HHCC for lunch, networking, updates on club projects and a program of interest. If you are interested in learning more about Rotary Cub and becoming a member, contact a Rotarian. You probably know at least one local member – possibly several.
