Senator Hutchison Speaks To Rotarians

The Abitibi mill was one of several subjects tackled by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison Wednesday.  The senator spent time in Lufkin talking to Rotary members about their priorities right now in congress.

She also gave her support for reopening the Lufkin mill.

"I want to weigh in to ask the people to keep the Lufkin paper mill open because that will be good jobs for Lufkin.  Everything that I can do, I certainly will do."

The senator also talked about her ideas for making sure there's enough social security available for future generations.

Rotarians all over the world are celebrating 100 years of service this year. Lufkin, Diboll, and Angelina Rotary members had a joint luncheon Wednedsay to honor their birthday. 

The Rotary club was founded February 23, 1905 in Chicago.  Today, more than a million men and women are members of more than 31,000 Rotary clubs in 166 countries.  The club focuses on humanitarian, intercultural, and educational programs.

Rotarians are now working on meeting their greatest challenge: eradicating polio.
