At a banquet Tuesday night, the Rotary Club of Crowley recognized the veterans in attendance. They were from left, Rev. James Proctor, Rotarian; Dr. Cason delaHoussaye, husband of Rotarian Isabella delaHoussaye; Dr. Thomas “Bo” McNeely and Ralph Cowen, Rotarians; John Miers, husband of Rotarian Pat Miers (president); and Mike McBride and Scott Schumacher, Rotarians.
Gathered in the activities room of Southwind Healthcare and Rehabilitation, the Rotary Club of Crowley had much to be thankful for Tuesday night.
When Rotarian Lee Wright was thrown the task of organizing the club’s program a couple of weeks ago, it put him in a tight spot.
His original speaker was set to visit the club in November, but Wright was rescheduled and his speaker could not. So, it fell to Wright to pull something out of his “bag of tricks,” which, if anything, includes plenty of informative military briefings sure to educate the local membership of the global organization.
Wright decided to present an informative program on what has become the world’s fastest growing religion: Islam. Current statistics show the religion is expected to rival Christianity by 2050.
For the first time in a long time last week, you could find Rotarian Kirk Schexnider sitting and visiting with his fellow club members at lunchtime
