Congratulations Andre'!

Andre’ Marria of the Thomasville Rotary Club has been appointed the Rotary District Governor for the Rotary year 2023-2024

From Fulton County to Thomasville covering one third of the state, the 71 Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 6900 with nearly 4,300 members will be represented by Thomasville’s own Andre ’Marria when she assumes the title of District Governor for the Rotary year 2023-2024. Marria’s appointment was announced at the Rotary Club of Thomasville meeting December 17.

As is the custom when future Rotary District Governors are announced, Past District Governor’s attend the home club of the District Governor Nominee Designate when the announcement is made. Attending the meeting last week were Past District Governor (PDG) Bob Hagan, Roswell; District Governor Elect, Mary Ligon, Dougherty; District Governor Nominee Designate Andre’ Marria, Thomasville; PDG Fran Milberg, Thomasville; PDG Cheryl Greenway, Roswell; District Governor Nominee George Granada, Griffin; PDG Court Dowis, Harris County and PDG Raymond Ray, Griffin Daybreak.

Thank you Red Kettle Participants!

Thank you to all the Rotarians who volunteered during the Salvation Army’s 2020 Red Kettle campaign. The annual fundraising drive is one of our club’s signature community service projects. Nearly 30 Rotarians braved both the pandemic and tough weather conditions to “ring the bell” at Walmart over a 5-day period. Donations support the local Salvation Army’s programs and services for the needy in our community. Pictured: Jay Flowers (as Santa) Janet Liles and Tom Everett

PS  A new addition this year was a young man who went around to the kettle sites playing trumpet. His name was Sam. He is from Thomasville and a Freshman at Georgia State University. He was brought in by the S.A. to spread some Christmas joy. 

GOODbye 2020!

Just for a little levity...if you haven't seen this, enjoy!  I think we can all relate.


It's been a year to remember.  Here's wishing everyone a safe and joyous 2021!
