Noon Meeting News – March 21, 2017 – Brooks Compton – Centerville Mayor

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, I think most of us have heard this when we were kids, “Go to your room and I think about what you did today.” As adults it still would be a good practice every night. Having a conversation with You Lord is always good, be it one as a critic of our deeds , a confessor for our deeds or a need to feel better about what we did or didn’t do. When we
critique ourselves and leave our troubles with You, we will sleep better, get up the next morning with new enthusiasm to stay on the path you have laid out for us. May we grow closer to You and be the piece of your puzzle that will complete Your picture of how’s things should be. Amen!

Today’s Speaker

Martin Noe, our planned speaker from Lexis exis was feeling under the weather, so he couldn’t make it to the meeting today. Fortunately, our fellow Optimist and Centerville City Mayor, Brooks Compton, kindly agreed to be our speaker.  He hit on a few topics such as getting a budget increase for the city, road reconstruction, and new building additions.

Two locations that are looking exceptionally good right now is the Cross Pointe Shopping Center on Alex Bell Rd, they just added a new restaurant: The Old Bag of Nails. The other hot spot right now is Cornerstone off of Wilmington Pike, which houses Costco, Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen, Cabela’s, Chick-fil-A, and soon a Kroger Marketplace.

Two new developments that will occur soon is the construction of Randall Residence – a senior living community – which will be located on Social Row near Sheehan. The other is a 444 unit apartment complex off of Alex Bell, named the Centerville Lofts.
