In September, the Rotary Club of Novato, California, celebrated the opening of a community center, the culmination of an effort that began in 2007 with a bequest of $5 million by longtime member Bill Jonas. The club worked with the College of Marin to construct a 15,600-square-foot complex on the college’s Indian Valley campus. The center houses a banquet space with the capacity for hundreds of guests, a kitchen, and a stage equipped with the latest audiovisual equipment. The club, whose contribution covered about one-third of the project’s total cost, obtained a 75-year lease as well as naming rights for its benefactors, the late Bill and Adele Jonas, and now holds its meetings at the center. “It was a long-term challenge, but we didn’t give up,” says Sonia Seeman, a co-chair of the project’s planning committee.

 

 

 
 
 
It's offically Pancake Supper time. Emails went out about corporate sponsorship from Paul Gray. At this time, Northside Baptist Church, Plains Capital Bank, Texas Butane Co., Cultivate Real Estate, and Jamie Bodiford have sponsored the event. We are still looking for cooperate and basket sponsors. Packets will be available for pick up at our next membership meeting. Below is a note for Paul Gray about signing up for the Pancake Supper.

Dr. Scott Tarnowieckyi from Weatherford College spoke to the club about Pearl Harbor at our Dec. 7 meeting. This year marks the 80th anniversary of the "day that will live in infamy." Club members enjoyed the presentation, as well as Dr. Tarnowieckyi answering questions about the days surrounding the attack. Dr. Tarnowieckyi is Professor of History at Weatherford College and chair of the Social Sciences Department. He has also been a visiting assistant professor at Texas A&M University, the University of Arkansas (where he earned his Ph.D.), Arkansas Tech University, and Missouri Southern State University.
