Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman
First Tuesday of the month from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. It's a great time to get to know one another and it is a make up!
The adage "necessity is the soul invention," proved true for Thomasville, Georgia-natives Kelly and Heather Abbott. In the midst of the economic downturn in 2010 and on the heels of twin layoffs, Heather wished out loud that she could have a new pair of earrings to wear to their family Thanksgiving celebration. Knowing only too well the state of their shoestring budget, Kelly's eyes landed on a small jar of spent 40-caliber bullets a dear uncle left at their home. While crafty with his arsenal of tools, he'd never attempted anything similar. Love for his wife motivated his determination to create something original to make her feel beautiful. He stayed up all night, tweaking and fashioning a stylish pair of studs Heather was proud to wear the next day. The couple walked away from that dinner with 25 orders from friends and family and the rest, as they say, is history.
Necessity may be the soul to invention, but love, hard work and a little luck have made South Life Supply Co. the leader in bullet and shotgun shell style.
We have opportunities for six Rotarians to read to Hand in Hand students on Friday, February 8 at 8:15a.
It's a very short book called "Pigsty" that shouldn't take but a few minutes of your time.
Please contact Trent Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to read.
The date has been set for Saturday, February 9th to paint the USA Map at Garrison-Pilcher school.
8a - 2p
We need 10-12 volunteers to assist in this project. All it takes is a willing heart. Supplies will be provided.
The map will be located on the courts to the right of the school's circular driveway.
Let Susan O'Neal know if you can join in on the fun for the day.
Rotary's Wheel Emblem
A wheel has been the symbol of Rotary since our earliest days. The first design was made by Chicago Rotarian Montague Bear, an engraver who drew a simple wagon wheel, with a few lines to show dust and motion. The wheel was said to illustrate "Civilization and Movement." Most of the early clubs had some form of wagon wheel on their publications and letterheads. Finally, in 1922, it was decided that all Rotary clubs should adopt a single design as the exclusive emblem of Rotarians. Thus, in 1923, the present gear wheel with 24 cogs and six spokes was adopted by the "Rotary International Association." A group of engineers advised that the gear wheel was mechanically unsound and would not work without a "keyway" in the centre of the gear to attach it to a power shaft. So, in 1923 the keyway was added and the design which we now know was formally adopted as the official Rotary International emblem.
