On October 16th it was a wet rainy ride to Post Rotary Club. They were planning a social for November 13 at the Community Recovery Center at 6 PM. They are looking forward to pizza and popcorn while watching the movie "The Arroyo". President Linda Puckett was presented with the theme banner and DG Dan inducted new members Kaaren Huffaker & Susan McDonald into the club. Two unique fundraisers that Post Rotary Club host are Cooking On The Square at which members cook hamburgers or brisket during Homecoming festivities, and Smokin in the Park. This event is their major fundraiser and is a state championship cook off sanctioned by Lone Star BBQ Society. They average 30-40 cooking teams and pay out to the top 10 teams in July of each year. Another neat event they have hosted was a pool party to honor 1st responders in their community. What a great idea to honor those that serve and protect us.

After the Post meeting, President Linda Puckett invited DG Dan & Kim to visit the Garza County Historical Museum of which she is the director. A lovely museum...but we were particularly touched by the "hospital room" where a portable iron lung was on display. This iron lung was discovered while renovating the building which was the former hospital. The little girl in the pictures was a victim of polio and was from Post, Texas. Such a poignant reminder of why we keep pushing to rid this world of polio.
