TO ADVERTISE, CALL 954 OR VISIT WWW.HOLLYWOODGAZETTE.COMS E P TEMBER 20085 COMMUNITY NEWSThe members of the Hollywood Womens Club are finding inspiration in their pioneer counterparts in their quest to preserve an important piece of their history. The small wood-frame clubhouse that has been the clubs home since 1927 is in dire need of repair. Members, who have raised funds for numerous causes since the club was established in 1922, are now reaching out to the community for help in raising at least $250,000 to save their historic building. It may sound like a daunting task, but the groups 115 members, who range in age from their early 20s to their 90s, are motivated by the powerful example of their female forebears. President Shelly deMarco said club founders, typical 1920s ladies who were not particularly liberated back then, managed to raise $5,000 for their permanent home, which was built on land donated by city founder Joseph W. Young at 501 N. 14th Ave. I call it the spirit of sisters past, said deMarco. If we can be as strong as they were back then, we cant lose. Original plans for the modest clubhouse had called for an elaborate Mediterranean-style building but were scaled back dramatically in the aftermath of the 1926 Hurricane that almost blew Hollywood off the map, deMarco said. Club members settled for a charming, 1,700-square-foot Classical Revival-style structure built from Dade County pine that served them well for eight decades, until it met its match in Hurricane Wilma in October 2005. The front wall of the clubhouse was pushed out of alignment and workers making repairs discovered that the buildings foundation is deteriorating. Members are hoping to be able to restore their clubhouse, which was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in February 1995. DeMarco said the decision over whether to rebuild or repair, which is pending the results of an engineering study, would not be an easy one. If the building has to be replaced, We would lose our historic designation, our history and, of course, our beloved clubhouse, deMarco said. To not have our clubhouse would be a catastrophe. Were going to do everything we can not to let that happen. And so, like their pioneer sisters before them, members of the Hollywood Womens Club are rolling up their sleeves and taking action. Fundraisers have been planned and the community is being urged to help out a philanthropic organization that has given so much to others in the past 86 years. The Hollywood Womens Club, which helped establish Hollywoods first public library, are active volunteers and have raised money through club activities for numerous charities that include Kids in Distress, Women in Distress, Broward Outreach Shelter, the Salvation Army, the Born to Read Program and Canine Companions. The group also partners with Hollywood Central Elementary School, funds college scholarships for teen-age cancer survivors and contributes, through the General Federation of Womens Clubs (GFWC), to Heifer International, a nonprofit organization that provides livestock, plants and agriculture education to financially disadvantaged families around the globe. The history of this club is always that these women will give and give, and they never ask for anything in return, deMarco said. She said individual members will continue to contribute to the groups charities, but the clubs immediate focus will be the restoration project. The next fundraiser, the 1920s-theme High Heels & High Tea, will feature teas of the world, petit fours, raffle prizes and ladies in hats and gloves from 2 to 5 p.m. Sun., Sept. 21 at a members home. The cost is $25. The club also will host its second annual bazaar and barbecue Nov. 15. The event, which attracted about 600 people last year, will feature an assortment of new, vintage and antique items. In addition, SunTrust Bank currently is contributing $100 to the restoration cause for every new checking account opened with a minimum of $25, and the Hollywood Rotary Club has offered the use of its facility for meetings during the clubhouse repairs. The more the word gets out that we need help, the more people are coming forward and saying, How can I help you? deMarco said. The Hollywood Womens Club meets at 7 p.m. the second Wednesday of the month and also at 10:30 a.m. the first Thursday to accommodate members who prefer daytime meetings. Membership is open to all women, although the majority live in Hollywood. The annual membership fee is $40. For more information on club membership or events, call 954-925-9394 or visit www.

Mamacitas owner, Marlon Gomez brings us South of the Border by way of Texas and a lifetime in Chicago before migrating to Hollywood four years ago to try his luck in a warmer climate. Due to South Floridian tastes, most dishes fall under the category of Tex Mex but Gomez also knows how to cook more traditional Mexican cuisine. Steak, shrimp, or chicken fajitas ($14$17), and twopound Red Snapper ($26), garner the most attention. However, Gomez said hes considering bringing back the mole (chocolate) and other home dishes.

Such is the case with Karen Ammars remarks about this pillar of the community: The Arts Academy of Hollywood is the place to be for kids and adults of all ages. Offer ing classes in dance, theater, music, sewing and art. The hardest part is picking just one or two classes per session.

I have enjoyed sewing and tap class es, and noticed that many couples and singles enjoy dance classes in the evenings. If we ever try to sell our house, we will use its proximity to the AAOH as a big selling point. We love it! Ammar is not alone. All anyone has to do is pass ity and look at the happy faces of children and parents, bright colorful classrooms, spacious ballet and dance rooms, art studios, retail dance accessories and juice bar, and its easy to see the citys universe.
