"Bow loved people...he loved people because he had a good heart"

Who Was Bow Stafford

Bow Stafford, who passed away in 1997, was a Charter member of the Jamestown Rotary Club. He was also a prominent member of the Jamestown community. Bow was an active member of the Jamestown United Methodist Church where he enjoyed participating in the church choir. He also played the mandolin and was an integral part of the Jamestown Fun Band.  As a realtor, he was involved in the land development of thousands of acres in and around Jamestown.  His knowledge of and love for the community gained him the unofficial title of “Mr. Jamestown”.
“Bow loved people” said longtime friend Dr. A. P. Fortney in a eulogy at Stafford’s funeral. “He loved people because he had a good heart, and he had a good heart because he had God in his heart”.  “As a Charter member of the Jamestown Rotary, Bow was instrumental in the formative years of the club and helped set the standard that the Jamestown Rotary Club lives by today. His participation and
leadership in the club and its community activities, set the bar high for those that followed him”, stated past club President Cliff Paddock.  “We felt naming the golf tournament after Bow was a good way to honor his memory and give people
who never met him the opportunity to get to know him”, longtime friend and fellow Rotary member Martin Senell commented.  Knowing Bow’s love of people and community, we are encouraged by his legacy and strive to continue to live up to his dedication to “Service Above Self”.

Feeding Lisa's Kids

Feeding people is Lisa Hawley’s business.

The owner of Southern Roots, a popular restaurant in Jamestown featuring local products and Southern charm, Hawley is also the recipient of High Point Human Relations Humanitarian of the Year Award. It’s what she does away from the restaurant that has earned her this honor. Three years ago, Feeding Lisa’s Kids came to life in Hawley’s living room. It was summertime, and Hawley knew many kids might not get enough food once school was out. What began as a simple operation in a living room has now grown to more than 300 people getting food to provide at least 20 meals a month. Thirty volunteers meet on the first Wednesday of each month at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church in High Point to sort, organize and deliver food. In addition to the monthly food deliveries, Hawley caters the monthly community meal at West End Ministries. She donates food from the restaurant. Feeding Lisa’s Kids delivers food once a month, but during long school breaks, like winter and spring break, it makes extra deliveries that include breakfast and lunch items. If there is a threat of a winter storm, volunteers make a special delivery before the storm hits. And of course, Thanksgiving and Christmas include special meals for those days, as well. Hawley said she hopes that one day Feeding Lisa’s Kids will be able to reach every family in High Point and even beyond who are in need of food. She said Feeding Lisa’s Kids is made possible by the amazing volunteers, board members and community partners who donate time, food and financial assistance. “God put me here to feed people one way or the other,” Hawley said. “Either they come here (to the restaurant) or I take it to their home!”

“God put me here to feed people one way or the other,”
