Martha HolmanThe seventy years of service celebration for the Fayette Rotary Club was observed on February 24, 2007.  The whole affair was organized and arranged by Martha Holman and several other persons.

Jim SteeleFayette Rotary 2006-7 President Keith Keeling opened the program with information about the evening and the introduction of Jim Steele, who provided a factual accounting of the seventy year Club History.  (Jim’s complete presentation is available on the Club History page.  Jim referenced many of the club presidents and there is a complete listing on this website – Past-Presidents.)

The event was held at the Central Methodist University Student and Community Center.  Fresh Ideas, the university food service catered the event.  Larry Leech gave the invocation.

The Affton CenterStage Theatre Company provided the evening's entertainment with the play entitled W.U.R.S.T., written by Rob Corbett.  This well-known St. Louis area group donated their services for the event. “Murder in the W.U.R.S.T” — written by Rob Corbett —

 Rob was actually a stand-in for one of the parts on this particular evening. The Affton CenterStage Theatre Co. was established in St. Louis in 1991.

Judy RethwischThe company is under direction of well-known Central Methodist University graduate Judy Rethwisch and several of her students. Rethwisch, a member of the class of 1965, received a Distinguished Alumni Citation last year from CMU.

She is semi-retired after more than 30 years of service as a drama and theater arts teacher at Affton High School. The school several years ago named a gymnasium in her honor.

The evening continued with the madcap comedy W.U.R.S.T.  Shown below are two scenes from the production.

 

The St. Louis area group staged the benefit dinner theater production as part of a fund raiser to support the Fayette Swimming Pool Restoration Fund.  More than 100 persons were in attendance.
