This week's Program:

"Stock Picks"
Craig Lidell
     As an Edward Jones financial adviser, Craig Lidell believes it's important to invest  his time to understand what you're working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, he can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. Craig can also help with your retirement savings strategy so you have more options when you retire, regardless  of what you decide to do.

      Craig Lidell began his Edward Jones career in 1991 as a financial adviser in Arlington. Today, Edward Jones serves the Arlington community from over 20 convenient locations.

     In 2010, he qualified to attend the Edward Jones annual Managing Partner's Conference, an honor reserved for the firm's top 350 financial advisers. This was his first year as a qualifier and has qualified five times.

      Craig earned a bachelor of arts degree in mathematics from the University of Texas in Arlington where he graduated in 1970. In addition, he received the professional designation, AAMS® in 2003. The College for Financial Planning awards the AAMS® designation to
individuals who successfully complete a 12-module professional education program, pass a final examination, commit to its code of ethics and agree to pursue continuing education.

     His wife, Kara, and he have two sons and a daughter, and four grandchildren (and soon to be 5). He is an active member of the community, serving as Past President of the Theater Arlington Board of Directors. He is also a past president and current member of Arlington Sunrise Rotary. His senior branch office administrators, Diane Stacks who has been with him for 10 years and Vanessa McClure for 9 years, are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible.

     At Edward Jones, he's focused on you. The firm has thousands of people and advanced technology supporting our offices so that they can help you reach your long-term financial goals.

     Please REPORT your "volunteer hours"!  One of this Rotary year's focuses is tracking the number of volunteer hours given by Rotarians. So, if you are a team captain, committee chairman, or merely a part of a group of people who perform a project or service, please send an email to Dwayne Lee at southernflair@sbcglobal.net  to report the number of volunteer hours expended so that we can report to Rotary International.
Ways to do a "Make-up"
  1. Go to: https://www.rotaryeclubone.org/programs.htm and watch a video or read an article.
  2. Attend a Sunrise Rotary social event. (Christmas party and other Sunrise social gatherings)
  3. Work on a Sunrise Rotary project (flags,PhasedIn, Blood drive, Highland games, etc.)
  4. Attend a Sunrise Rotary Board meeting. (1st Tuesday, 7:00 a.m., David's BBQ)
  5. If you're in a travel status, get the Rotary Club Finder app for your smartphone and find a Club in/near the town you are visiting - even outside of the United States!
  6. Attend another local Rotary Club meeting. There are seven other Rotary Clubs in Arlington that you can make up at. Here's a list of them:
    • Arlington North Rotary, Monday at Noon, Texas Land & Cattle, N. Arlington
    • Arlington West Rotary, Tuesday at Noon, Shady Valley Golf Club
    • Arlington Highlands Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., Dave & Busters in the Highlands
    • Arlington Sunset Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., J. Gilligan's on E. Abram
    • Arlington Rotary, Thursday at Noon, 1st United Methodist Church
    • Arlington Great Southwest Rotary, Thursday at 6 p.m., Humperdink's @ 6 Flags
    • Arlington South Rotary, Friday at Noon, Spring Creek BBQ, S. Cooper
Here's the catch:

     You literally have a whole month in order to work your "make up" into your busy schedule - within 2 weeks prior to the meeting you will miss and within 2 weeks after the meeting you miss.

So you see, there really is no valid excuse  for you not having PERFECT ATTENDANCE.
 But there is one major step to ensure your make-up is validated - you must report it to Club Secretary Sheri Hall at  sherilhall@gmail.com.
