More than 100 people gathered to honor Jane Bauer at the annual Morning Optimist Club's 2014 Citizen of the Year roast Thursday night.

Bauer, a Marshalltown native, is the president of the Marshalltown Development Foundation, a member of the board of directors for the Friends of the Library, Marshalltown Public Art Committee for the 13th Street Renovation Committee, 100 Women Who Care, the Hawthorne Club PEO and the Twentieth Century Club.

"I feel very honored and very humbled," Bauer said. "It's just such a shock."

Jane Bauer, 2014 Marshalltown Citizen of the Year, holds a plaque at the annual Citizen of the Year Roast dinner Thursday night. Bauer is a Marshalltown native who has been involved in numerous committees and fundraisers.


More recently, Bauer was a co-chair for the Dancing Feet for 13th Street fundraiser.

"About everything that's happened in this community she's been a part of in raising funds," said Joynell Raymon, of Marshalltown. "She has unique ideas in what she does and how to raise money and it always works. She is very dedicated and she loves Marshalltown."

Bauer was chosen as Citizen of the Year by previous Marshalltown Citizens of the Year.

"She's been a great supporter of so many causes in Marshalltown," said Jim Lowrance, mayor and 2012 Citizen of the Year. "She's done so many things."

The projects she has been involved with include 7 Great Ideas for Imagine 2011, the Marshalltown Citizen Police Academy, Legacies on Main Street brick project, raising funds for saving the Franklin Field ticket booths and serving on the interview committee to hire current Marshalltown High School Principal Aiddy Phomvisay.

"She probably is one of the greatest volunteers we have in town," said Jonathan Hull, owner of Willard's and a roaster. "She is always out trying to help raise money for different things and she is the Aretha Franklin in Marshalltown."

Before she retired, Bauer spent 34 years as a consultant for Color I, a system for wardrobe planning and interior design. She presented numerous color seminars on college campuses and drew more than 6,000 people to Marshalltown for their personal color analysis.

Since she moved back to Marshalltown in 1970, after going to school and working, Bauer said the years have flown by.

"Our life has been a flash," Bauer said. "When I left for college I never thought I would be back home. It was the best gift to be back. In all the years we've been here it's gone so quickly."

Her kids and grandchildren went to, or are currently enrolled, in the Marshalltown school district.

"Now we have grandchildren who are enjoying our school system, which I think is a very good school system," Bauer said. "I owe the community for the gift they've given me. I hope you'll feel that way some day too."

Bauer said she encourages everyone to get involved in Marshalltown.

"I feel so strongly about everybody getting involved in our community and showing what we have and making it bigger and better," Bauer said. "That's been my message. We can do it."

The roast was held at the Best Western Regency Inn with proceeds going to the Marshalltown Morning Optimist Club for their community projects.

Lorie Moore, publicity chair of the Marshalltown Morning Optimist Club, said the 113 reservations to this roast were more than she has had in the last several years.

 School Hymn

Through the years at our MHS, 
Red and blue will proudly fly;
And the spirit of it lingers 
As each year goes by.
Many happy times together 
Spent in perfect harmony
All these memories we will cherish
MHS of thee.
