This month, The Rotary Club of Novato celebrated a beautiful milestone: an official ribbon cutting for the newly minted Bill & Adele Jonas Center. 
After more than two years of design and construction work, a new 15,600-square-foot conference center is complete at College of Marin’s Indian Valley Campus in Novato.

The $14.5 million project, is the result of a partnership between the college and the Rotary Club of Novato. The club contributed about $5 million toward the cost of the center to fulfill a 13-year-old bequest from the Jonas family.

In exchange, the club will have a reserved space for its weekly Friday lunch meetings and several days of reserved event space annually.

David Wain Coon, the college president, said the complex is “a much-needed space for gathering and educating the community.” [Continue reading in the Marin Independent Journal]

Club President, Christina Stroeh, shared some inspiring words at the ribbon cutting ceremony.  Congrats on this remarkable achievement!
