President Chris Jobe as always asked if anyone celebrated a birthday or anniversary during the past week. Jailer Roger Lee Jordan was celebrating a birthday, and tradition goes you pay one dollar when you do. Guests for the week were introduced and recognized, among those were Sarah Lycans, daughter of member Steve Lycans, LMS principal Joey Cecil and Austin Taylor, son of members Tommy and Ellen Taylor.

Speakers for the week were from Servpro with offices located in the Flatwoods, Ky. area, and serve Carter, Greenup, Lewis, Boyd and Lawrence Counties.

Jimmy and Jerry Rowe are the owners and also cousins. They have been in business for a little over 5 years.

Their marketing manager, Kathy Bamer spoke about Servepro and what they do. She also spoke to the character of the owners, saying that together they are "unstoppable and hands on." They are both married and both are veterans. They not only do the work that Servpro is known for, they are also very involved in giving back to their community of Flatwoods.

The Rowes not only give help in many ways to their own community, they also help out others when a disaster hits. Just recently they took a six man storm team to Houston, Texas.

"They worked anywhere from 14 to 16 hours a day to help in the cleanup of the storm that hit hard," Ms. Bamer said. "They stand behind their motto, it being, 'Like it never even happened!'.

She stated that they do every type of cleanup jobs from carpets to catastrophes such as when the Pentagon was attacked. Servpro trucks were everywhere and cleaned it up to the point that when they are done, their clients feel as if it is better than it was before, Ms. Baden said.

Servpro also provides a free service to come in your home or business and set up a file of all water cutoffs, identify all inventory, etc. so you have peace of mind knowing that if something happens, they have a informative folder that basically tells them everything about your building and it's contents. Open seven days a week, 24 hours a day (even Christmas) their number is 606-836-8000 and their Facebook address is

After the speaker concluded, President Jobe presented them with a Rotarian coin and the meeting was adjourned for the week.
