Rotary Clubs have been encouraged for years to document
their history. Unfortunately, it is easier recommended
My husband, Pat, and I have accumulated many items
pertaining to Jackson Rotary. I think in a weak moment I
volunteered to organize the information into a booklet for
the Club. Other Rotarians, hearing of the project, contributed
memorabilia. However, we know there are more
pictures, trophies, and documents packed in boxes or on
shelves in our community and elsewhere.
I believe it is appropriate to remind you as you read
this I was unable to document certain portions. Stories
passed along verbally are frequently embellished by Rotary
mischief. News clippings become faded and tattered.
I hope, because of this edition, each of you will attempt
to locate items you have which you are willing to
share. It would be wonderful if, as a result, we can rewrite
the history in a more complete version.
May you enjoy the achievements of Jackson Rotary
Club and appreciate the efforts of all who have been members
during the past fifty years.
