What You Missed Last Week!

The mission statement of Sunbelt AG EXPO is “to produce the premier farm show in the world; one that is conducive to trade and emphasizes information, education and implementation of the latest agricultural technology, research and equipment.”

Chip Blalock CEO of Sunbelt AG, shared with the club members how he and his team labors to live up to the organizations Chip, a Rotarian from the Rotary Club of Moultrie, highlighted many of the programs Sunbelt AG promote each year. Programs that not only benefit individuals and companies but the surrounding cities and towns. The EXPO is 3 days, 300+ seminars and live demonstrations and offers something for everyone.

This Week Program!

A Tallahassee native, Annie began living her Kathleen Kelly-dream in 2013, when she took over operations of The Bookshelf. Annie and her husband Jordan now happily call downtown Thomasville home, and Annie spends her days among the books and fellow readers she loves. She adores leading story time for local little ones and acting as the shop's very own Nancy Drew, determined to find just the right book for just the right person. Annie also hosts From the Front Porch, The Bookshelf's weekly podcast about books, small business, and life in the South. In 2016, Annie was featured as one of Southern Living magazine's 50 innovators changing the South, and in 2019, she was selected as a member of the Booksellers Advisory Council for the American Booksellers Association.

Four Way Test!

As Rotarians, we hold ourselves to a high standard. That standard is the Four Way Test. We recite it each week to remind us of our responsibility to each other, the local and the world community. Mahatma Gandhi is credited with having said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” By using the Four Way Test, we can be the change we look for in our world. All of this ties in with Rotary’s theme of “Serve To Change Lives.” When we serve to change lives, we change as individuals. In the process we change the lives we touch. Let us make the Four Way Test our mantra. By so doing, we Serve To Change Lives. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
