The Washington Noon Rotary Club welcomed P.S. Jones African-American Education Museum Executive Director, Alice Sadler, as Monday’s guest speaker.

Ms. Sadler ( left) was introduced by her husband and club member, Mayor Donald Sadler (right).

Ms. Sadler delivered a compelling power point presentation which captured the history of African-American public education in Beaufort County from the Civil War reconstruction era to the present.

The career educator also thanked the club for recently awarding a $2,500 grant to help fund the P.S. Jones African-American Education Museum in Washington.

Also pictured is Noon Rotarian Bob Douglas, who became the club’s newest member to attain Major Donor status. He was joined by his wife Jackie.

Together they have strongly supported international and local Rotary projects and programs both in Washington and their previous residence in Red Bluff, California.

The Washington Noon Rotary Club convenes at the King Chicken Banquet Facility each Monday at noon featuring a luncheon buffet and a guest speaker presentation.

This coming Monday’s guest speaker is Edward-Jones Financial Advisor Jordan Cantrell, who’ll explain economic indicators and potential investment opportunities.
