Some members of the Dilloette Alumni Association visited with the current Drill Team at the Locking Horn Ranch where the girls were staying for camp. “Old” memories were shared with the girls, and they were encouraged to “Live the Legacy, and Continue the Tradition.” We are looking forward to all the wonderful performances the current Dilloettes will give this year!

Hill Country Naturalist

Body
When one thinks about prehistoric time in central Texas, the end of the Pleistocene epoch and the last glacier retreat that occurred around 12,000 years ago comes to mind. Before the retreat of the glaciers, the climate in Texas was certainly much cooler, and the vegetation different than what we see today.

We did it again!!

Body
We did it again!!! On Saturday morning, we picked up and bagged up trash along our designated highway. The Rotarians that were present, and might I add worked very hard this morning, were: Jerry Blankenship, Deryl Hoyt, Mark Smith, Tom Griess, Bill Phillpotts, Beth Griess, Melinda Walker and Janet Hoyt. Fellow Rotarians – you were missed, but there will be many more chances to serve!

A Dog With Muddy Feet

Body
Her feet were clean when we went to the barn to feed the animals. I gave the little orphaned goat his bottle of milk, the two lambs their milk and fed the chickens. On the way back to the pickup, I happened to look down and notice the dog’s feet were muddy. I had no idea where she got into the mud, but she did. Now she usually rides up front, and sometimes she even gets to ride in my lap with the window down (her favorite way). But not in the front seat of my pickup with those muddy paws, so it’s to the back of the pickup she goes. Now she doesn’t like to ride in the back, but when she has gotten in trouble, that is where she has to ride. Her situation reminds me of a problem Christians can have or get into. When we disobey God, (sin) or do things we shouldn’t, it hinders our relationship to and with Him, (Isaiah 59:1&2, Psalm 41:4). The more we sin, the further it takes us away or separates us from Him. Telling God what we have done and asking Him to forgive us is what we call confessing our sins. No confessing –No forgiveness, (Psalm 51:1-4, 1 John 1:9). She was allowed to ride in the front of the pickup with me again once her feet were clean. See you in Church when the doors are open again.

Survey reveals 1 in 4 Texans met their neighbor for first time during lockdown

Body
A friend in need… While lockdown appears to have improved our communication with our loved ones – and neighbors – there is no doubt about the economic hardship many are facing during this time. It seems we are a country full of good Samaritans as the average American revealed they would lend their neighbor in need a significant $167. Texans would lend $192.59 to their neighbor.
