The long standing rivalry between Amador High School and Argonaut High School has been played 99 times since 1923. In 1971, The Rotary Club of Jackson created the Big Game Bell Trophy which the winner gets to keep until the next playing of the Big Game. This year we created a game logo which was used on ball caps, banners and newspaper articles. Each player and coach received a souvenir ball cap for participating in the game and after club members bought caps, the remaining ball caps were given to the schools' booster clubs for a fundraising opportunity for their schools. 
This year was the 100th playing of this community rivalry and the competition was fierce. The sky was clear, the weather mild and the enthusiasm for the "Battle for the Bell" was over the top! When the final whistle blew, Argonaut HS took the Bell away from Amador HS which has held the bell trophy for the past 4 years. The final score was 43-21. This was definitely a sign of home town pride. See more photos here

Last week, we experienced our annual passing of the gavel as out going President Marv was roasted and in coming President Irene accepted the leadership of our club. The event was held indoors due to the extreme heat wave that we were enduring. There were many spouses and significant others that joined us for dinner and the room was filled to capacity. To see the photos taken during the party check the home page photo album column to the left.
Two Tractors, two roto-tillers, 7 men and 3 hours was all it took to prepare the remaining area for this weekend's planting. Last year the Jackson Rotary Club coordinated the efforts of a multitude of volunteers from the community when the first 10,000 daffodil bulbs were planted at Vista Point. Another 10,000 bulbs will be planted on October 11th and 18th. The ground is hard as rock (no pun intended) and is FULL of rocks. At least it was before we tackled  the project yesterday...
See a few photos in the photo album and watch for photos of the actual planting next week.
DG Joe Zarachoff visited the Rotary Club of Jackson and presented a variety of awards recognizing members for their hard work.
 
See all the photos in the Album HERE.
 

 
Many hands make light work. Having fun and enjoying fellowship in the process is what makes events like these a huge success. Thank you to all that participated in the events that lead up to the weekend and well as those that put in many many hours throughout the event! See a few images HERE
After many hours of planning, multiple work parties and hard work by club members, we finally had the ribbon cutting for the new foot bridge at the wine pavilion. The BBQ itself was well attended and a good time was had by all.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
