There is more to this story than just GOATS!
Angie Hawkins with Happily Hawkins Farm opened her storefront doors just over 10 weeks ago, and she has not looked back. Happily Hawkins Farm store is located at 112 S. 2nd Street, right behind the Cattle Exchange. Her store hours are 10 am to 3 pm, Monday through Friday, and Saturday, 11 am to 6 pm, featuring goat milk bath bombs and goat milk soap, among other decorative products.
The Hawkins farm has Nigerian Dwarf goats, which Angie milks daily to produce her featured soaps and other goat products. In addition to goats, you will find Lionhead rabbits, Bantam chickens, ducks, three kiddos, and a husband. Angie’s philosophy is obviously, “If you are standing still, you are going backwards,” as she is always dreaming and planning for her next project or opportunity. She is even working on writing an autobiography that portrays the humor of taking an Austin mall chick and relocating her to a farm with goats and chickens. Check out her Facebook page, blog, or webpage at www.happilyhawkinsfarm.com.
Angie also put in a plug for the upcoming mystery dinner theatre presentation on Oct. 12 and 13, titled Whodunit? Mark your calendars for this community theatre comedy, where they never fail to entertain.
Shane Harris, accompanied by Pat Popham at the piano, led a hearty round of singing, followed by the Pledge and an offering of prayer to kick off the meeting. Rotary enjoyed the presence of Richard Brock and Julika Behrens as guests. Beth Briant pulled a double and won a free lunch and a draw at the Wildcat Jackpot. Beth also gave a report on our Rotary Outbound Exchange student, Quinn Cook, and all is going well, even the “learning German from a French tutor.”
Sheila Pankratz encouraged all to watch a documentary on country music produced by Ken Burns that will be showing on PBS. It is easy to report that it is certainly one of the best shows on television at the moment.
Rotarians are gearing up for Punt, Pass, and Kick on Oct. 1. Ex-football star, Jon Dumbauld is in charge, if information is needed. Join us for Rotary on Tuesdays at noon in the basement of the WCTU building.
