The speaker for the weekly Rotary Club of Winnfield meeting on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, presided over by President Jodi Taylor, was Zeb Winstead, District Governor of District 6190 for 2020-2021. The District Governor attended the meeting virtually via Zoom Meeting, from his office in Alexandria, Louisiana. Winstead is an attorney in Alexandria. He is also a third-generation Rotarian by marriage, following in the footsteps of his father-in-law and grandfather-in-law.

Both principles being especially pertinent during the COVID-19 pandemic when so many people in every community have many needs. He encouraged the group to develop goals for the year by considering where they want the club to be in five years. And find ways to make Rotary involvement in service opportunities enjoyable and inviting to increase service in the community.
