Collection Historical Note

The Nacogdoches Rotary Ann Club was organized in 1939 with the purpose of fostering and developing friendships among the wives of the all male rotary club and to also be of service to the community. The Rotary Anns met for a monthly luncheon during the school year and entertained the District Governor’s wife yearly. The Rotary Anns were also an active participant in the Nacogdoches Federation of Women’s Clubs.

In the beginning the Rotary Anns provided milk and lunches to school children during the depression, worked in the hospitals during World War II, gave Christmas parties at Rusk State Hospital, and contributed to the style show, more money was available to distribute to the community. SFA scholarships were given, high school band uniforms were purchased, and many various local organizations benefited from the proceeds of this special event. The Club was dissolved in May of 2004.
