Kimsey Hodge will bring her award winning Odyssey of the Mind team to share their experiences and challenge the club's creative thinking.
The discussion about the shooting range currently under construction in Thomas County was a huge hit even after the presentation.
750 in attendance. Thank you for your support.
As we prepare to continue our work of connecting the world in the 2019-20 Rotary Year, District Training Assembly provides a great opportunity to connect with the people of District 6900 and learn about a variety of topics. All over the world, this kind of major leadership training event will be held in each Rotary District. I encourage you to join your fellow District 6900 Rotarians on Saturday, March 30 from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm in Columbus, Georgia!
Workshops will offer motivation, inspiration, Rotary information and new ideas for club officers, directors and key committee chairs and new members of each club. Some of the most experienced district leaders conduct informative discussions on all phases of Rotary administration and projects. The sessions give all participants valuable new ideas to make their club more effective and interesting. We have something for everyone. Join us in Columbus at the Convention and Trade Center, 801 Front Avenue on March 30.
We will begin with fellowship while enjoying the best hot breakfast buffet in Columbus with all you can eat bacon, and end with fellowship while enjoying a true Southern style hot lunch. Register today by letting Kim Walden know you want to join in on the fun.
The first motto of Rotary International, "He Profits Most Who Serves Best," was approved at the second Rotary Convention, held in Portland, Oregon, in August 1911. The phrase was first stated by a Chicago Rotarian, Art Sheldon, who made a speech in 1910 that included the remark, "He profits most who serves his fellows best." At about the same time, Ben Collins, president of the Rotary Club of Minneapolis, Minnesota, commented that the proper way to organize a Rotary club was through the principle his club had adopted - "Service, Not Self." These two slogans, slightly modified, were formally approved to be the official mottoes of Rotary at the 1950 Convention in Detroit - "He Profits Most Who Serves Best" and "Service Above Self." The 1989 Council on Legislation established "Service Above Self" as the principal motto of Rotary, since it best explains the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service.
