What is Rotary?

We're a leadership organization of local business, professional and civic leaders. We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we're able to get things done in our community and --- we have fun doing it.

Captain Encouragement is the face of Call to Inspire's Youth Program, a program which goes to schools across to teach children (Pre-k to 3rd grade) about the values of non-violence, compassion, and how to properly deal with situations involving bullying. The program reaches children through various programs ranging from the Introduction to Superhero Training program all the way up to the complete Superhero Training Course, as well as through the comic book based on the Captain Encouragement character. As a result of Covid-19 the school assemblies were halted and other means to keep the program alive was used including educational videos.  In order to encourage the Captain Encouragement program, the Rotary Club of Jackson provided funds for videos and other materials as part of a District Service Grant.
These and other videos can be found on the Captain Encouragement YouTube channel at:

In an every increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship.  It is one of the two reasons why Rotary began in 1905.
At each Rotary meeting there is a program to keep one informed about what is going on in the community, nation and world.  Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers and a variety of timely topics.
This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian: the chance to do something for somebody else; to sense the self-fulfillment that comes in the process; and the return of that satisfaction to one's own life.  It is richly rewarding.  Each Club is free to choose what local and non-local projects to support.
Rotary is fun, a lot of fun.  Each meeting is fun.  The Club projects are fun.  Social activities are fun.  The service is fun.

Rotary Club of Jackson is staying true to this year’s Rotary theme “Be the Inspiration.”

At the beginning of his Presidency, Art Long approached Operation Care’s Executive Director, Tammie Crabtree about a project that the club could organize for Operation Care. The outdoor play area having a shade structure has always been on the “wish list” for the staff at Operation Care.



The staff at Operation Care knew that the playground shade structure would improve the quality of life for the residents and their children at the shelter. Imagine living in a home with 13 others and not being able to enjoy the playground because the direct heat of the sun makes it unbearable on the hard plastic. The shade structure allows the children to enjoy being outside and having a few moments of normalcy.

In December, a number of Jackson Rotarians went to the Operation Care safehouse and took the time to prep the playground area and within two weeks, the shade structure was fully installed.  In January the Ledger News published a nice article about the project.

This year’s Big Game at Amador was a thriller!  Argonaut scored in the opening minutes of the game with a field goal as the result of a recovered Amador fumble on the opening kickoff.  While Argonaut racked up numerous penalties, Amador came back and controlled most of the first half.  The half ended with Amador well in the lead.  But the second half would be different.  Amador was taking numerous critical penalties while Argonaut pounded the ball down the field racking up scores.  In the closing seconds of the game, Argonaut scored a touchdown that tied the game, 21-21.  Argonaut missed the extra point and time ran out with the scored tied. 
Not being familiar with league rules, Jackson Rotarians wondered what to do with the Bell Trophy in a tie!  They soon learned that there would be overtime where each team would get the ball on the 25-yard line and attempt to score.  Argonaut got the ball first and scored on a 4th down touchdown pass.  Amador blocked the PAT and took possession of the ball on the 25-yard line.  Amador would need to make a TD and the extra point to win.  But Argonaut stayed strong and with Amador at 4th and goal, they failed to score.  Argonaut won in overtime 27-21!  We knew what to do with the Bell!  Congratulations Argonaut Mustangs!
