Hello Region of Luv. First allow me to apologize for sending this from my
personal email but we are still in transition so please bear with me. As
many of you know, West, TX was recently devastated when the fertilizer
plant in their town exploded, taking a large portion of their town. At
least 14 people, many of them first responders, lost their lives in the
incident and our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. Then a day
later, there was a flash fire at the Exxon Refinery in Beaumont, Tx which
injured at least a dozen people, 4 of them critically. It is now, in the
wake of disaster when we as a people truly shine and step forward and give
of ourselves to help others. With this disaster in our own backyard, we as
a club find ourselves faced with an opportunity to step forward and show
others why we are the Region of Luv.
In light of those recent events, we will be supporting those communities as
our South Central Regional Charity. Everyone is encouraged to help in any
way that they can. There are several ways you can help and some of them are
