Morning Rotary provides books to St. Lucia
The Kerrville Morning Rotary Club announced that it has provided more than 700 books and magazines to the library of the Anse La Raye Primary School on the island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
The project is the brainchild of Rotarian John Aceti and his wife, Carol, who have tutored at the school in St. Lucia.
Assisting in the project were fellow Rotarians, Samantha Booth, Drew Whitehead and Laura Bechtel, who also happens to be the director of Kerrville's own Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library.
The Kerrville Morning Rotary Club wishes to thank the following for their generous donations:
• Notre Dame Catholic School and Comfort libraries, and, 
• Friends of the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library.
Additional expressions of gratitude are due to the owners of the local UPS store, Ginny and Bill Bull, and their daughter, Angela Brinkley, for their assistance.
The morning group meets at 6:45 a.m. Thursdays at The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, 201 Holdsworth Drive in Kerrville.
Scheduled to speak on Feb. 15 is Barry Wall, of Texas Rainwater Systems.
Leading the morning group are: Lew McCoy, president; Laura Bechtel,  president-elect; Jon Tilley, treasurer; Kenneth O'Neal, secretary; Frank Dunlap, sergeant-at-arms; Waverly Jones, past president, and Randy McClay, for the Rotary Foundation.
