What You missed Last Week!

One of the beautiful things about Rotary is connection and as an organization we are connected to some amazing people. You are amazing and what you bring to Rotary is a reflection of the 4 Way Test! Thank you, Chase Zande for sharing with us the opportunities available for young golfers. Anytime we can build up youth that is the greatest investment anyone can make. "We cannot always build the future of our youth, but we can build our youth for the future." Franklin D. Roosevelt 

Congratulations, to our star Students of the Month from ALL of our local schools. Thank you students, Brookwood-Taylor Middleton, Central High-Emily Hobbs, Central High-Chloe Jackson, Bishop Hall-Jayden Edwards, THS Scholars-Hudson Sizemore. "There is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it." Amanda Gorman
