It’s another beautiful week in the Rio Grande Valley!

Last week you might have noticed my article was missing. I had to have emergency gallbladder surgery that bought me some time in the hospital.  I apologize for missing a week, but I am now living the life without a gallbladder. You never know what its function is until you do not have one anymore.  Goodbye spicy food, French fires, and everything else I love. This week has been been a trial and error of foods that my stomach can handle.  I’ll be out there again to SEE YOU this weekend.

The Noon Rotary Club of Mission held the Installation of new Officers & Awards Banquet last week.  Members attended Cimarron for dinner to honor outgoing President, Laura Villarreal and to welcome incoming president, Lupita Ramirez. Officers include:  April Chapa, Laura Vela, Lenny Garza, Carlos Olivera; Aida Lerma; and Terri Plata.  Other members that attended included:  Clay Everhard; Jesse Lerma; Xavier Villescas; and others.  Congrualtions to Lupita Ramirez on  your exciting year!
