Thanks to Cindy Maness, executive director of Mineral Wells Center of Life, for providing today's program about COL and its array of services and programs to help people in need whether it be with food, clothing, furnishings, employment, social services or classes to help provide life skills and personal betterment. She is pictured with program chair Eric Douglas.
 
She said more than 1,900 individuals were assisted in 2019, many of these more than once and some through more than one service.

Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meets every Wednesday at noon at Palo Pinto General Hospital for lunch, socializing with fellow Rotarians, updates on club news and events and a program of interest. Meetings are for club members, invited guests and prospective members.
 
It was a special Sunday for one local non-profit and nearly 200 women, and Rotary Club members were able to hear all about it at Wednesday's meeting. Special guests attending were, pictured above, from left, Joy Eaton, Kriste Burnett, Judy Jackson, Barbara Upham and Jill Moore.
 
100 Women of Palo Pinto County held its inaugural event Sunday afternoon at Coffee and Cocktails at 76067 in downtown Mineral Wells. Misty Nix opened The Market at 76067 for the group to tour and shop.
 
Jill Moore brought the idea to Palo Pinto County, saying she had sisters in other places, including McKinney, that have similar group fundraisers. The idea is simple – get 100 women to write a $100 check that will go to a winning non-profit agency. That would mean $10,000 going to one fortunate agency.
 
Only something amazing happened – in its first year 100 Women of Palo Pinto County became 194 women, and on Sunday afternoon Back Pack Buddies of Mineral Wells won a close vote and received $19,400 – nearly half of their annual operating costs.

 

Rotarian Janette Green, center, brought to last Wednesday's meeting Kimberly Sewell and Paul Jewell from Mineral Wells Nutrition to talk about their popular smoothie and juice bar located at Brazos Mall, featuring their line of healthy shakes and energy teas. They brought samples of their teas to the meeting for Rotarians to try. If you haven't been to their store yet make plans to do so and check out their drinks.

 
Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday had Something To Talk About – meaning a program featuring two members of the Mineral Wells Toastmasters Club called "Something To Talk About."
 
The program given by Cherry Rushin and Larry Core coincided with last week's announcement of a new collaboration between Rotary International and Toastmasters International enhance their skills, broaden their networks and provide positive impact in their respective communities.
 
Cherry and Larry told Rotarians about Toastmasters and their chapter, which has about two dozen active members and meets every Tuesday evening at the Best Western Hotel.
 
 
 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 7, 2020 — Members of Toastmasters and Rotary will enhance their skills, broaden their networks and increase their positive impact in communities through a new collaboration.

The ongoing relationship between the two organizations will begin at the grassroots level with local club members learning and working together. Additionally, Toastmasters will create a set of eight structured communication and leadership development courses for Rotary with a phased rollout that will be available in English in 2020, and in more languages in 2021.

“The strategic alliance with Rotary is exciting and allows both organizations to leverage our unique and similar strengths,” says Deepak Menon, Toastmasters' 2019-20 International President. “We look forward to providing our current and prospective members with ongoing additional offerings that meet their evolving needs.”

 

Pictured with her mother, Vicki, Texas Special Olympics athlete and state and national champion Jamie Novak spoke to Rotary Club on Wednesday about competing, especially in her specialty events bowling and track and field – where she excels in the shot put and speed walking.

 

Jamie couldn't say how many medals she has won over the years – but it's a lot. So many that when she travels with them they noisily clang together.

 

She said her participation in Special Olympics have allowed her to travel and meet many people, and visit and tour many places, including the Statue of Liberty in New York.

Mineral Wells residents won't have to drive to Fort Worth or Dallas to find one of the coolest, fastest-growing sports and entertainment venues in America and around the world. They will simply need to go downtown.

Anthony and Taylor Privitt are opening Hatchet House Mineral Wells, located at 309 S.E. 1st Avenue. Pictured above with Rotary program chair Dr. Saskia Vaughan (right), the couple visited Rotary Club of Mineral Wells on Wednesday to introduce and talk about their new venture.

A combination of darts and bowling, hatchet throwing bars are rapidly growing in the U.S. and Canada. There are leagues and competition events, or people just go to throw hatchets at wall-mounted targets for fun.

The Privitts plan to have Hatchet House Mineral Wells open the first weekend in January.
