December 2, 2021 - It was our RCC’s annual wreath sale distribution today!  We were all so excited to help them raise over $7000 this year and even more excited to get these beautiful pieces home and displayed for the holidays!  What a great way to start off December.  RCC Chairperson Joel Norris was able to recruit some fellow Rotarians with his distribution today!  Pictured (L-R):  Dale Phenicie, Mike Lardie, Phil Hamilton, Joel Norris, Amos Speight and Katy Spade – Thanks for the help today!
December 2, 2021 - Congratulations to Paige Munk, Owner/President of Ideal Roofing on being our newest member!  Paige lives in Fayette County with her family.  After graduating from Columbus State University, Paige began working in the roofing industry and soon saw a growing need for a roofing company that would be honest and fair to all.  She opened her own company in 2013 and is admired for being a woman-owned business in a male-dominated industry.  After raising 3 sons in our community, Paige wants to continue to give back and feels that Rotary will be a great fit for her!  We are looking forward to working with you, Paige!

November 2021 - November is Foundation Month!

We are proud to have been doing a FOOTBALL FOUNDATION FUNDRAISER all season! With members being able to pledge $.50 or $1 for each point their team scored this season, we have already raised $9,377 with a few more weeks to go for our NFL team! While our Georgia Bulldogs are still leading the pack, we have big donations from other SEC teams as well as some Big 10, ACC, FBS Independent, American Athletic Conference and the NFL!

The Rotary Foundation has earned a 4-star rating on Charity Navigator for over 10 years now! This is just another way for us to know that our money is going to an awesome organization! With Rotary Foundation funds, our club has been able to receive multiple district and global grants to continuing Doing Good in the World!

November 12, 2021 - With the help of a Rotary District 6900 Grant, we hosted a REVERSE Job Fair with over 30 employers and 10 veteran (or veteran spouse) job seekers on Friday morning. A few job seekers have interviews scheduled for Monday. What makes this job fair unique is that the job seekers are the ones who have the booth. They shared memorabilia from their military experience, interests they have for their future careers, and employers were able to get to know the job candidates before discussing the potential positions.  We are thankful for the opportunity to mentor job seekers to prepare them for this event. The Eden Project, Peachtree City Christian Church, and Fayette Chamber of Commerce were also integral partners to make this event a success.

October 28, 2021 - No Tricks – but LOTS OF TREATS!  Thanks to our members, we were able to gather up 30+ bags of candy for the kids at Marnelle Mobile Home Park to have an awesome Halloween!  As President Adam says – it was ‘good’ candy (i.e. lots of Chocolate) and not the cheap kind 😊!

October 1, 2021 - What a great event!  We were happy to host a candidate forum to showcase our City Council and Mayoral candidates for the upcoming election.  The event was sponsored by the Hilton Peachtree Atlanta Hotel & Conference Center and Cooper Lighting Solutions.  The event was well-received as it was open to the public.  Candidates had several hours during the evening for one-on-one conversations and then had a 1.5 hour session with questions presented by Will Garner (PTC Rotarian).  Thanks to everyone who joined us for the evening!

August 21, 2021 - There's a new Lager in town - "Beer of Service"!  It was so much fun to collaborate and partner with Line Creek Brewing to release their newest pale lager as a fundraiser for our club.  $1 from each pint or 6-pack sold will continue to be donated to our club to help with our many service projects.  The beer can was designed to include our QR code and some data about our club.  We look forward to partnering with them again in the future!
 
Pictured are Rotarians and Rotaractors at yesterday's event!  The beer must be good based on those smiling faces! 
 
 
August 14, 2021 - What a Celebration it was!  CLUB OF THE YEAR - such an amazing accomplishment for our club and our community!  This award recognizes the best of the best! From Foundation Giving to Youth Programs, Service Projects to Social Media, Leadership and Club Participation – this award was for each of us that participated in any way last year to help those in our local community and around the world.  We all gave a little more of our time, compassion and money to help those around us over the last year and it was a truly remarkable experience to be recognized by our fellow Rotarians for those efforts!

August 14, 2021 - Congratulations to Past President Steve Ivory on his recognition as a Sheffield Leadership Award recipient.  This award was established in 1994 by the Rotary Club of Americus to honor three Past District Governors (all from the same family and from the Americus Rotary Club) – John West Sheffield (1926-27), John W. Sheffield (1961-62) and Langdon Sheffield (1975-76).  The award is presented to the presidents who best exemplify the extraordinary leadership traits represented by the Sheffield family and execute their responsibilities in an exceptional manner.  I think we can all agree that this award was well-deserved by Steve!  He joins a great group of other past presidents of our club who previously received this award as well:  PDG Bill McDonald (1995-96), Donna Turner (2001-02), Mary Chapman (2006-07), and Amy Leuenberger (2013-14).
