Victim Impact Panel

We will be hosting a Victim Impact Panel with Guest speaker Gerald Hohfeld.  It is scheduled for 6 PM on Tuesday May 30th.  If you are interested in attending please contact John at 940-716-8575.  Priority is given to those who are required to complete this as part of their sentence however, there is still room for a couple more if you wish to attend.  Gerald has a powerful story about how his life and overcoming adversity.

Jr. Bar Association

Because the weather is to turn stormy tonight, I prefer you be where it is safest.  If you, as a group, choose to come on to the meeting, I will be at the office.  If you choose not to meet tonight you MUST meet Thursday after school.  I cannot stay after 5:00 the rest of this week.  You have to take care of fundraising this week.  Your letter needs to be mailed this week and an event within the next two weeks.  Decisions on the Bill you chose will be made before the end of April, time to meet Legislators is running out.

New Community Service Location

We have secured a new community service location in Clay County.  The Clay County Animal Shelter located in Henrietta.  I know the first thing you are going to say, “I don’t want to drive to Henrietta!” You are correct, however, they do adoption events in Wichita Falls at PetSmart and PetCo.  But if you live in Clay County this will be easier to get to and should help with completing community service hours.
