Hill Country Monthly 2013-2014 Hill Country LTG. Marceloâ€™s Newsletter
Hill Country Monthly Volume 1, Issue 6 February 2014
2013-2014 Hill Country LTG. Marcelo’s Newsletter Hello Hill Country Division! February was a very busy month for our division. We participated in many service events, fellowship activities, and all of our chapters held officer elections. I had the honor to attend all of the elections and the number of members seeking an office truly impressed me. Whether you were elected as a chapter officer or not, I want you all to know that there are still many opportunities for you to get involved at the chapter, district and international levels. I recommend you all to keep an eye out for these opportunities, and once they become available, apply apply apply!
Volunteering at the Austin Marathon – Super Hero Kids Water Station
Having said that, I hope you all are as excited as I am for our 2014 Spring Rally. I am hosting a kickball game where we will be collecting canned goods to be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank. Just a reminder, the event is this Saturday, March 1st, 2014 from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Krieg Softball Complex Field #1. In order to play, each member must donate two canned goods. I can’t wait to see you all there! Like always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me at any time. In Leadership, Fellowship, and Service,
Rock Stars of the Water Station
