This website and social forum created in honor of Belle, the author's mother originally built upon a platform for social network and sharing of information and prizes has taken on a greater purpose.  Our focus now on supporting the efforts of the Vocational Institute of Michigan building operations and training programs and the Society of Facility Engineers’ skilled trade certifications through fundraising promotions.  The objectives are to have safer, more secure, and comfortable buildings.

Onisac Club formed in remembrance of the forgotten disabled combat engineers who answered the call for Operation White Star and the Berlin Crisis were never fully compensated for injuries due to records not unsealed for 50 years and other administrative controlled matters.  Our promise is to encourage people to honor these forgotten veterans by helping to raise money for social economic purposes.

Rapa House

Special Tribute to the Rodgers

 

The author, Steve as a jazz flute player felt it honorable to gives special praise to musicians in jazz, blues, and classical music who he had an opportunity to perform with or listen to in America and abroad. 

A very special congratulation must be given to Virgil Rodgers, trumpet, and his late, great brother, Ernie Rodgers, wind instrument master. Both have been close friends since childhood.

The Rodgers are the founders of the Rapa House, once located at 96 E. Vernor, Highway near Woodward Avenue in Detroit Michigan. Virgil also foundered Rapa House West in California.

Both Rapa Houses were well-known after-hours sit-ins for amateur and professional musicians.
