ROTARY WEEK VOL 4 NO 13


THE PROGRAM TODAY WAS PRESENTED BY RONELLE CLARK OF MAQUOKETA, WHO RUNS "OPERATION NEW VIEW" SERVING JACKSON
COUNTY FROM OFFICES ON EAST QUARRY STREET.      BACK IN 1964, THE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY ACT WAS STARTED BY A U.S. ACT OF CONGRESS AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY ACTION OFFICE  IN JACKSON COUNTY WAS STARTED IN 1974.    "HEAD START" IS A MAJOR PART OF THE ORGANIZATION.
HERE IN MAQUOKETA.   THERE ARE 20 STUDENTS (3-4-5 YEAR OLDS) THAT
ATTEND CLASS  FIVE DAYS A WEEK.    THE ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
IS ANOTHER OFFERED BY "NEW VIEW".    FOR THOSE WHO QUALIFY, HEAT
ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE  EVERY WINTER AND THIS WINTER AGAIN, THERE
WILL BE AROUND $175,000 PAID OUT OF THE MAQUOKETA OFFICE.
RONELLE IS EXCITED ABOUT HER FAIRLY NEW JOB AND INVITES ANYONE TO
TO STOP BY AND MEET THE KIDS AND FIND OUT MORE ABOUT SERVICES
OF  HER OFFICE.     SHE ALSO WELCOMES ANYONE TO ONCE OR TWICE
A MONTH, BE A MENTOR TO THESE KIDS.   THEY ENJOY AN ADULT READING
A STORY TO THEM.    RONELLE BY THE WAY, IS THE DAUGHTER OF SUE
HOVEY.    HER MOM AND LATE FATHER RAN HOV'S PUB IN DOWNTOWN
MAQUOKETA FOR A LONG TIME.     SHE DID A GREAT JOB SPEAKING TO ROTARY TODAY AND WOULD BE WILLING TO SPEAK TO OTHER ORGANIZATIONS.
