Umbrella Time
One of the most entertaining events of our meetings is the umbrella auction! This weeks' spirited bidding did not disappoint.  Ken Ruiz won the opportunity to own the umbrella this month. He enthusiastically greeted our honored guests and invited them to our Gold Raffle to be held at the Mini Cooper dealership October 23rd.
Volunteer Opportunity!
Volunteer opportunities at Locke Hill Elementary Learning Tree will continue when school is back in session!  To find out more about this awesome program and to register follow this link HERE!
Fines and Confessions
James Daniel acted as Sergeant of Arms today. Barry Abrams confessed that he is still walking on a cloud after the arrival of his 6 weeks old granddaughter Sydney.  Ken Ruiz shared that his nephew's birthday was today.
Gold Raffle Ticket Update
President Rick says that tickets will be available next week!
President Rick encourages us to display the Rotary decal on our car. This will help identify us as Rotarians and could start a conversation that might lead to someone wanting to attend a meeting!  We have decals available at our hospitality table at all meetings.
Club Lunch and Business Program
Today we awarded scholarships to two very deserving Interact students.  Angie Canonizado and Alexis Regner are both graduating from the International School of the Americas (ISA). They each brought members of their family to help celebrate with them.  Barry Abrams, Scholarship Chair, introduced both students and shared a little bit about them. One of Angie's strengths is "attention to detail." Angie has been a leader in the Interact club for 4 years and plans to attend the University of Southern California. She wants to do film and television studies. Our other scholarship recipient, Alexis, is known for her strength of "servant leadership." Alexis plans to attend Texas State and major either in math or special education.
We commend you Angie and Alexis for all your hard work and for being leaders to your classmates! Thank you for coming and for bringing your family members today!  You have a bright future ahead of you. We will be encouraging you every step of the way!
As is our tradition we will donate a book in honor of our scholarship recipients to the Locke Hill Elementary School library.
    Show Low Raffle
    Spotlight is on John Legris' comments about wine! Today it was Maricool Muscadet - from France - according to John, "very good with shellfish or a light salad." Puerta Plata (translation: silver gate) Reportedly all grapes used for this wine are from the Catalunya region of Spain and are a blend of 60% Tempranillo and 40% Garnacha. This particular one was a 2017 prize winner in Berlin.
    Ken Donoughue won the opportunity to draw the 2 of clubs for the $650 pot. Unfortunately he drew the 5 of spades. However since "there are no losers at Oak Hills Rotary Club" he took home the Puerta Plata. Andrej Canonizado, Angie's brother, owned the second ticket drawn. He took home the Maricool Muscadet.
    Thank you Ken Ruiz for donating the wine this week!   
    Coffee Friday
    This is how we celebrated the end of another week! We enjoyed great treats and fellowship at Broadway Daily Bread this time. Clark High School is not in session so we scored parking spots in front!!! We usually meet the second Saturday of the month.
    Next Coffee Friday:
    Location: Broadway Daily Bread on DeZavala
    When: August 9
    Time: 8 a.m.
    Happier Hour
    "Where everyone knows your name"......Come join us at the Outback Steakhouse - between 5:30 & 6:30?  Derek Matthys says "the earlier the better!" Come join your friends and unwind on July 18!  Typically the third Thursday of the month.
