The Lake Ray Roberts Rotary Club volunteered this past weekend at the Keep Pilot Point Beautiful Trash Off.  A team of Rotarians volunteered their time this weekend to pick up trash in Pilot Point.  Our team picked up trash along US Hwy 377.   The Trash Off involved several different groups of people in our community working together picking up trash in Pilot Point.  Also included in the Trash Off were recycling of electronics, tires, batteries, oil, and old prescription drugs.  This is a wonderful event the Keep Pilot Point Beautiful hosts.  We are proud to be able to assist our community in Keeping Pilot Point Beautiful!

 This is what our District Governor said about our club on his blog:  
 
At Lake Ray Roberts Club today. They meet at a very unique and great home cooking restaurant Bebos amd Kathy's just south of Pilot Point. I would strongly recommend you put this on your make up list. IN addition to great food they have a very relaxed atmosphere and are doing things in the community. They are strategizing on how to reach out to the other communities in the area to join Lake Ray Roberts and be a gift to the world.
