Rotarians at Work!
What You missed Last Week!

Rotarians at work! We had a great time packing boxes for those in need in our community,  we had over 30 Rotarians meet us at Second Harvest. Our goal in Rotary is to make a difference in the world but especially our community. Our BIG IMPACT project is underway and it is all because of you and what you do and give to make Thomasville so special. We also had 22 special guests from the Chamber of Commerce iLead Program of high school leaders. They shared a project they have been working on in an area that has also been identified as a food desert known as Dewy City. Rotarians keep up the good work of making our community beautiful and meeting the needs one step at a time. Special Thanks, to the planning committee and everyone who make it happen!
