Port Arthur Rotary President Art Thomas presents Port Arthur Police Det. Mike Hebert with a certificate of appreciation for speaking at Thursday’s weekly meeting.

Hebert talked about the department’s efforts to fight drive-by shootings and the importance of community watch groups, among other things.

One of the meeting’s highlights was Port Arthur Rotarian Trenton Scott winning $792 as part of the organization’s fundraiser to supply elementary children with dictionaries.

The $792 was half of funds raised by selling raffle tickets each week.

The holder of the winning ticket would then draw a playing card, aiming for the Ace of Spades.

On Thursday, only five cards remained, and Scott drew the winning card.
