About Helen Ayer Patton
Helen Ayer Patton is the daughter of Maj. Gen. George S. Patton IV, and granddaughter of Third Army commander Gen. George S. Patton Jr. Born in Washington D.C.
 
Helen led the typical life of an Army "Brat" with multiple family moves to include Fort Walters, Rucker, Knox, and Hood as well as 3 tours to Germany. An amateur performer turned professional Helen began her career with the Department of Defense, singing for troops along the former East German border, Sinai Peninsula, and Thule Air Base in Greenland. She is a graduate of Catholic University and London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
Helen later received a full merit scholarship and an MFA in directing from Northwestern University.
 
Her family’s military heritage spans 300 years. Her ancestors also include Benjamin "Don Benito" Wilson, the first and mayor and deed holder of Los Angeles and Frederick Ayer, one of America's first business magnates whose wife Ellen Banning was a classical actress of the "belle époque." Helen's father the late Maj. Gen. George S. Patton, IV was even more highly decorated than his famous father. He fought in the Korean war, was wounded in Viet Nam. Patton IV led and trained leaders who would fight in Operation Desert Storm.

Is your Rotary photo out of date or just plain missing? Has your bio needed an update since the '90's? Has your hair gone missing since the last Rotary photo? You can't call 911 to report those once lustrous locks missing, but you can get a new and up to date photo on November 8, 2022.
 
Gerald Roznovsky agreed to shoot new pics for us at the November 8, 2022 during the regular Rotary Club meeting at the Lake Jackson Civic Center. Thanks to Gerald!!

Here are some of our incredible club members passing out pizza to area high school students during Brazosport College's Career Day. It was a lot of fun!
On October 30, 2021, members of Brazosport Rotary continued to maintain the Abner Jackson Plantation historical site, continuing work started in August. This project was organized by Rotary in Action co-chairs, Mike Coburn and David Landsborough.
There was much to celebrate during the month of September! See below for just a sampling of memorable moments during our weekly meetings. (More to come on future posts!)

Argun and Yui met January 22-24 with hundreds of fellow Rotary Youth Exchange Students at the SCRYE Conference in Tulsa. 

 

Ask them about the skits that they performed with their countrymen at the banquet.  Austin reports from Italy that she has moved to her second host family in Milan and is having a wonderful exchange experience.  She is a good ambassador for our club, community, and country.
