What a great program about the Broken Shackle Ranch. We appreciate David Cobb’s presentation about how this work has impacted over 8,000 young men since 1984.  There will be a Board Meeting February 1 at 11am and all Red Badges are encouraged to attend (to get rid of the Red Badge)!  The program will be by one of our very own, Colonel Jim Galloway (Ret).  He will be sharing his experiences while on assignment with the Royal Air Force.

What an inspiring program today as we had four students compete in the Rotary Speech Contest! It is refreshing to hear how the next generation “gets” what Rotary is all about and makes one proud to be a part of it. Congratulations to the winner, Nada Kent (Valdosta HS), second place Annie Eilders (GCS), third place Lauren Burgess (Lowndes HS), and fourth place Patrick Childress (Valdosta HS). They all did a fantastic job! See you Tuesday for the joint meeting with Valdosta North on Tuesday, January 24 at the Rainwater Conference Center.
