December 2018 EDITION
News Around The District
DG Jerry Chapman's December Message
Recently some of you have commented to me about the year nearing the mid-point and asked if the experience is what I anticipated. The year is exceeding my expectations. I have visited all the district clubs along with a satellite club and that early morning (6:30am) group from Pflugerville. Our clubs are truly making a difference in our local communities and globally. Let me share a couple of updates with you.
