Farenthold due here for talk
Congressman Blake Farenthold, R-Corpus Christi, will be the speaker at the Port Aransas Rotary Club’s regular meeting on Thursday, April 5. He will address the impact of Washington, D.C. on Port Aransas and ask Rotarians’ opinions of that impact.
It will be the first time a U.S. congressman has spoken to the Port Aransas Rotary Club, Rotarian Bill Lehmann said.
While Rotary meetings are restricted to members and invited guests, the club has asked any interested Port Aransans to meet with Farenthold after the meeting. The Rotary meeting will be from 12 to 1 p.m. at the Pelican’s Landing restaurant, 337 N. Alister St., and Farenthold will meet with others at 1 p.m., Lehmann said.
The Port Aransas club is among the smallest among Rotary’s 56 South Texas clubs, but works with other organizations – Kiwanis, Port Aransas Boatmen Inc. and others – to help the community. A major effort for years has been scholarships for graduating high school students.
