It has taken nearly a decade to catch on. But it seems that the ambitious community vision of one little-old-lady from Overton may finally be approaching its full fruition this year.
Those who had the chance, several years ago, to associate with Ms. Virginia Powers will certainly remember her well. She was an elderly resident of the Robbin’s Nest in downtown Overton. But her frenetic and vibrant activity level would never have given away her advancing age. Though she was growing increasingly frail at the time, Virginia was involved in everything. She was an active member of the Moapa Valley Chamber of Commerce and of the Rotary Club; and she made a point to be in regular attendance at all of their meetings. She loved living in the Moapa Valley, loved the people here and was forever optimistic and upbeat about the potential of this little community.
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 23rd: It is time again to show teachers, staff and administrators of all Moapa public schools how we appreciate them. The stove is hot and ready to go by 6:30 and we will serve at 8 AM.
Volunteers are needed from set up, pancake blending and pouring, sausage n egg cookin' to actual smiley faced servers!
January 10, 2001 Press Release (Moapa Valley Progress):
Moapa Valley Rotary Club Sponsors Boy Scout Troop 118
The Moapa Valley Chapter of Rotary International has accepted responsibility as the charter organization for the Boy Scout Troop 118, Anaszi District, Boulder Dam Area Council. The agreement requires active participation by both the chartering organization and the troop.
In part, the chartering organization must conduct the Scouting Program according to its own policies and guidelines as well as those of the Boy Scouts. In addition, Rotary actively participates in the Scouting organization, serves on the unit committee to screen and select unit leaders, and ensures adequate facilities for the Scouting units. The Boy Scout council must support the aims and objectives of the Rotary Chapter to include offering Scouting resources to achieve those objectives, provide training and program resources to the Rotary and Scout units, and provide guidance for selecting quality scout leaders.
Kevin Green, Scoutmaster for Troop 118, sees this joining of Rotary and Boy Scouts as a very positive step for the Troop. "The Boy Scouts are actively involved in the local community. Rotary's involvement and commitment to the community and its youth provides the Scouts with a great opportunity to expand its community service."
Bud Noble, Moapa Valley Rotary President also believes that Rotary not only helps the Boy Scouts, but enhances and expands its community service to the youth of the valley. "The Boy Scouts is a natural fit into our existing youth programs here in the local chapter. I believe that our participation with Troop 118 enhances the ability of both organizations to perform community service in the Moapa Valley." The Rotary Club already is actively involved with the community youth through its middle and high school programs and its scholarship programs.
