Support The Troops

The Rotary Cub of Thomasville supports the 1230th Transportation Company, Georgia National Guard. This company has deployed to the combat zone in Iraq and Afghanistan twice in the last 10 years. The Club honored some two hundred and sixty of these soldiers and their families by supporting the Family Day Holiday party from 11 to 3, Sunday, December 2nd at the Exchange Club this year. On this day the soldiers and their families celebrated each other, were provided gifts and a traditional turkey and ham dinner with all the trimmings. The hall was decorated with holiday themes, holiday music and a Bounce House and slide were provided. Santa Claus made an appearance with gifts for the children. In addition, supported by Thomas University a Noncommissioned Officers was honored with a Peacemaker Award and recognized for his service to the community. Thirteen Rotarians and other volunteers prepared the food for the officers and non-commissioned officers to serve. Twenty-two Rotarians provided homemade desserts for the party. The event was covered by the Thomasville Times Enterprise. This project reinforces our brand of supporting First Responders and soldiers as this year's overarching theme and is an annual event.
