Page 4 - Wednesday, February 20, 1980 Brief history of Cloverdale's Rotary Club On June 2, 1926, the smallest town in the world to have a Rotary Club, Cloverdale, CA, received its charter from District Governor, Tom Bridges, of the Oakland Club. George Cavalli (Groceries) was installed as President and Nelvin Cobb (Furniture) was to serve as secretary. Today, under Pres. Robert Del Sarto, the club has a membership of 35 Rotarians. Secretary John (Tay) Sink, as he has for the past 29 years, efficiently manages the club's business. The Club has always been a leader in the district, in attendance, being in the top ten. This year is no different as the club attendance for the year is over 96 percent. The club has flourished for the past 53 years and was honored in 1961 to have Normal C. DeLaittre serve as District Governor for 513 under whose leadership projects heretofore thought unrealistic were brought into being. The Cloverdale Club presently meets at Papa John's Restaurant every Thursday at 12:15 p.m. Papa John's is located at 225 Theresa Dr. in Cloverdale. Some of the recent projects this club has successfully undertaken are: installation of sturdy benches along the streets of Cloverdale most used by the senior citizens, the'placement of attractive cement trash receptacles at selected sites in the Cloverdale area. These ar E community projects still being carried out under the direction of President Bob. Plans for the immediate future call for the purchase and installation of an elec- tronic scoreboard for com- munity Little League Baseball. This is done with the theme of "Let Service Light the Way". Recently completed con- struction of bocci ball courts, spectator stands and im- provements in our City Park have been supported by our fundraising activities. The Cloverdale Rotary Club participates annually in Citrus Fair exhibits, Harvest Fair exhibits and assists in the annual Cloverdale Fiddle Contest, among others to raise these funds. The Cloverdale Rotary Club will continue to sponsor Boy Scouts, Little League, school scholarship, Youth Library and Community Aid to the needy and other worth- while community functions.
