What You Missed Last Week!
Our program last week was Chandler Giddes Executive Director of the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society. As many of us are cat and dog lovers, we appreciate the services the Humane Society provides. Thomasville and Thomas County are fortunate to have such a service. Many of the counties in southwest Georgia do not have a humane society. Thomas is one of four counties out of thirteen that has an animal control service. We appreciate the work the Humane Society does and thank them for that service.
We also recognized our students of the month at the meeting last week. Representing Thomasville High School’s Scholars Academy was Mallory Fletcher, who is the granddaughter of Rotarian Teri White. Kaleb Smith was student of the month for Thomas County Central High School. Both Kaleb and Mallory aspire to continue their education after high school. Mallory is moving into health care and Kaleb into law.
Online and at the Plaza there was sixty in attendance last week. Remember, even though the vaccine is being administered, we must still follow CDC guidelines in the fight against Covid-19. Social distancing, wearing of masks and avoiding crowds is the very least we can do to protect ourselves and others. But these are the most effective means of combatting the virus.
Rotary Opens Opportunities. Today we have the opportunity to make a difference in our community and the world. Let us take care of ourselves and each other.
