Local architect Tim Hopkins on Wednesday showed Rotary Club members what he considers works of art.


Hopkins is the architect behind the renovation and restoration of the historic Crazy Water Hotel on North Oak Avenue. He showed images of the hotel's original 1925 drawings done in ink on pieces of linen. He said going back today and doing the measurements, they match the drawings exactly.


“I consider them works of art,” said Hopkins of the drawings he said were discovered in a small room in the hotel's basement. “They have been tremendously helpful to me.”



Wednesday's Mineral Wells Rotary Club meeting went swimmingly, thanks to Mineral Wells Moccasins swim team coach Macy Nix and two special guests.


Nix, along with her sister, Lexis, this year took over coaching and leading the team and its 48 members from ages under 8 to over 40. The team competes in Region IV of the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation.


Nix brought to Wednesday's meeting Devin Crenshaw and Dezden Duppstadt, both first-year swimmers who each placed in events this past Saturday in Weatherford, the first meet of the year competing against four other teams.


Rotary Club of Mineral Wells welcomed Lewisville Morning Rotarians and Rotary District 5790 leaders John and Marilyn Pokorny to Wednesday's meeting to talk about the importance of our club's community image and visibility. They are pictured above with Mineral Wells Rotary Club President JJ Dugan, right.


The Pokornys touched on several ways members can help spread the word of Rotary throughout their social networks to make people in our community more aware of the club and its activities, mission and goals aimed at helping raise interest in membership and participation.



With Mineral Wells on a path to economic growth, Rhett Warren, center, hopes to use an existing path to further local progress and development.


An attorney and president of the Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors told Rotary Club of Mineral Wells members on Wednesday he is working to charter a Friends of the Lake Mineral Wells State Park and Trailway non-profit fundraising and steering organization to make improvements on the 20-mile trailway that stretches from downtown Mineral Wells to Cartwright Park in Weatherford.


With four trailheads and 16 bridges along the route, two miles running through Mineral Wells are paved with asphalt, with the remaining 18 miles of the trail lined with crushed limestone. The former railroad bed for the Weatherford, Mineral Wells and Northwestern Railroad, the trail opened for public use in 1998.


Rotary Club of Mineral Wells welcomed new Mineral Wells City Manager Randy Criswell, and his wife, Janie, to Wednesday's meeting. They are pictured above with club President JJ Dugan, left, and program chair Tanya Lukas, right.


The former Canyon city manager began his new assignment in Mineral Wells on May 6. He has been been busily catching up on all the projects, proposals and activities under way and on the planning books.


One of his most important immediate tasks was to become meet with and become acquainted with city administrators, department heads and as many of the approximately 175 people employed by Mineral Wells. He has also been absorbing and working on the city's new and critical economic development strategy following the report recently turned over by consultant Hawes Hill & Associates and the priorities outlined by the citizens' task force.

Rotary Club of Mineral Wells on Tuesday awarded scholarships to six Mineral Wells High School seniors during the school's 2019 Scholarship Assembly in the high school auditorium.
Above, from left, Zander Adams, Brei Ruelas and Breanna Seaton were the recipients of $1,000 Rotary scholarships each. Presenting them on behalf of the club was 2020-21 president nominee Tonya Gary.
Tonya also formally presented Rotary Club of Mineral Wells' three Four-Way Speech Contest scholarships to the three winners from earlier this year. Mia Elder, second from left, won the local contest and received a $1,000 scholarship; Rachel Carter, left, was the winner of a $500 scholarship; and Bradley Aaron received a $250 scholarship.
Monies for local Rotary scholarships are made possible through the community's support of fundraisers including the U.S. flag subscription program, the annual Crazy Kicker 100 bike tour and other fundraisers throughout the year.
We congratulate not only our six scholarship winners, but all who received community, academic and athletic scholarships and aid to help them advance in their educational and career pursuits and guide them to success, and serve their communities and fellow humans and, like us, put "Service Above Self."


Light it up!


That is theme of Leadership Mineral Wells Class 25 for its project to restore and re-light the famous "Welcome" sign located atop Bald Mountain.


But that is not all. This class of 23 members is taking things a "step" further with plans to create a park at the base of the mountain, with steps – reminiscent of the "Fat Man Reducer" stairs up East Mountain decades ago – leading to an observation platform just below the newly restored "Welcome" sign.


Members of the Leadership class presented their plans and fundraising efforts Wednesday to a room packed with Mineral Wells Rotarians and guests at Palo Pinto General Hospital.



Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday were entertained by scenes performed by Community Christian School's One-Act Play varsity ensemble as they and the school's junior varsity and junior high acting troupes prepare for this weekend's state championships taking place in Mineral Wells.


The Community Christian School Warrior Theater Department will compete in its seventh Texas Christian Athletic Fellowship State One-Act Play Contest on May 4th following recent wins at the TCAF District Three Contest.


CCS Administrator and One-Act Play Director Doug Jefferson brought the high school varsity OAP performers and technicians to Rotary to perform portions of their play, "Over The Tavern," part comedy and part drama written by Tom Dudzik and set during 1950s America.
