Jeremy Emmett from Southern Lodging, Inc. provide us with information regarding the Marriott in downtown Thomasville. The site is convenient to the downtown and historic districts and is anticipated to open in August of 2020.
Architectural drawings show a facility that is open and welcoming to the public and will blend with the historic look and feel of Thomasville. It will provide 100 rooms, accommodating up to 400 guests. Three meeting rooms will be available that can accommodate 75 people each, or be combined to seat 150. They are estimating generation of $3 million in revenue for Thomasville businesses. The Courtyard by Marriott hotel is a $12 million investment and brings up to 50 new jobs.
Our greatest strength as an organization comes from our membership, so that is why there will always be a continued effort to attract good Rotarians engage them early, and keep them around for a lifetime of service! Know someone interested in joining Rotary or learning what it's about? Bring them to Rotary!
Guests and sponsors at August 15th meeting:
Join us for a film about the integration of the high schools in Thomas County. It is a documentary that features the football coaches and others that helped manage the atmosphere around Thomasville. It highlights all the positives of conscious community involvement while avoiding the obvious conflicts of the forced integration. Several of the participants will be available to answer questions. It is a very positive and uplifting story. Andy Jones is one of the featured speakers in the film.
