Join members of Soroptimist International of Novato, a group of professional and business women, at our special annual
membership meeting for a great speech, fellowship, and explore volunteer opportunities for the betterment of girls and women, both locally and globally.
the heels of the 80th anniversary of the federal penitentiary on “The
Rock”, a.k.a., the Alcatraz Island, we invited Mary Marvier and her
sister, Jeannie Comerford, to come and talk about their experience of
growing up in Alcatraz. Mary “spent
more than a decade on Alcatraz when it was a federal penitentiary, and
she loved just about every minute — it was her home. When
she was mere weeks old, her family moved from Pennsylvania so her
father, James Comerford, could take a corrections officer’s job on the
island.It would be her home for the next 12 years until the family moved off Alcatraz in 1954.”
