Nothing brings Rotarians to a meeting like scheduling Randy Nix as the guest speaker, which is what program chair Mike Rankin did this week.

The club on Wednesday welcomed local investors and entrepreneurs Randy and his wife, Misty. Having formed RMNix Co. LLC, along with their Nix Rental Homes operation, the Nixes have led the Mineral Wells transformation and resurrection.

Primarily, they are principals in the restorations of two historic downtown hotel properties. They formed a public benefit corporation and assembled 88 investors to restore Crazy Water Plaza (aka Crazy Water Hotel.) A mixed-use development, the hotel has already hosted events in its beautiful roof-top ballroom and pavilion. There are 37 air B-and-B rooms and 37 permanent apartments, of which several have been promised for lease.

 
Elizabeth Baker grew up surrounded by Weatherford native and actress Mary Martin, most famously known as the original “Peter Pan” and the mother of actor Larry Hagman, who first starred in the TV show “I Dream of Jeanie” and then became internationally known for his role as J.R. Ewing in the TV series “Dallas.”
 
“I had a big picture of Mary Martin over my bed,” said Elizabeth, who was Wednesday's guest speaker at this week's Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meeting.
 
Like Mary Martin, Elizabeth is also a Weatherford native. Today, she is the theatre director/music educator at – where else – Mary Martin Elementary School in Hudson Oaks for Weatherford ISD. She grew up loving musicals, having attended productions at Casa Manaña Theatre in Fort Worth as a child. Elizabeth received her formal education in music from the University of North Texas, then returned to Weatherford to start her family with her husband, Brent Baker.
 

Rotarians on Wednesday enjoyed a program about a new salon and wellness boutique Rockin Hair Body & Soul at Crazy Water Plaza.

Entrepreneur Torie Kent and her fiancé are all in on Mineral Wells, purchasing and now renovating a house on NW 4th Avenue along with the work they are doing on preparing the new salon for its opening in the next couple of months. They also own T&A Adventure Outfitters with plans to open stores in Mineral Wells and at PK Lake.

Torie has had much success owning and operating salons, coming to Mineral Wells from Glen Rose. She also knows a lot about health and wellness, sharing with the club her personal weight loss. She has been a licensed cosmetologist since 2001. Along with the salon, she said she and her team will go onsite, especially for weddings, which Torie said she loves doing weddings.

Program chair Cody Jordan said the renamed Crazy Water Plaza has leased all of its retail spaces and will begin opening them in mid-September. A grand opening ceremony is planned for Saturday, October 9, coinciding with this year's Crazy Water Festival.

Welcome to Mineral Wells, Torie, and best of luck with your new venture and adventure.

Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meets every Wednesday at noon at Southside Church of Christ, with lunches catered by Sadie's Eats. Meetings are for club members, prospective members and invited guests.

 
Rotary Club of Mineral Wells recently welcomed guest speaker Nikki Elms, superintendent for Lake Mineral Wells State Park & Trailway - Texas Parks and Wildlife.
 
Nikki came to Mineral Wells in 2018 and has become very active in the community. She shared with Rotarians her professional and personal journey and information about the state park, which is seeing a high volume of visitors especially now as more people are getting back to normal activities and want to be outdoors.
 
Thank you, Nikki, for visiting with Rotarians today. Nikki is pictured with new club President Karyn Bullock.
 
Rotarians and guests were treated to an outstanding program Wednesday with four members of Palo Pinto County Municipal Water District No. 1 providing information and an update on Turkey Peak Reservoir, the planned second water reservoir adjacent to Lake Palo Pinto that will nearly double the district's impounded water capacity and supply to its service areas in Palo Pinto and Parker counties, serving more than 31,000 people.
