October, 7, 2021 - Congratulations, Ty Harnar on being the newest PTC Rotarian!

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). 
August 12, 2021 - Night one of District Celebration!  We are looking forward to a great weekend in FL with our fellow PTC / District 6900 Rotarians!  
 
August 9, 2021 - Our RCC is LIGHTING up the world!  Their smiles say it all - but the before and after at Mimi's Good Food with the new LED lighting has it on display all the time now!  Mimi has been a long-time supporter of our RCC by hosting their monthly meetings.  With this in mind, the RCC wanted to do something for her in return.  This was a great opportunity to partner with Cooper Lighting Solutions again on a local project.  CLS donated new LED Cruze Retrofit Kits to replace the lighting - dropping the energy consumption of the lighting by ~70% across the restaurant.  The RCC members helped by unpacking the lighting and helping dispose of the materials.  We had Rotarian volunteers that then installed the new LED kits.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered on this project!
August 5, 2021 - We officially kicked off the Dragon Boat Festival by "Awakening the Dragons" today!  We were joined by Kevin Headley from our presenting sponsor for this year's festival - RINNAI.  We are so lucky to have supporters like this in our local community.  As the presenting sponsor, Kevin, along with President Adam, performed the traditional "Eye Dotting" to officially 'wake-up' the dragons and kick off the festival season!

July 17, 2021 - PTC Rotary joined with our RCC and helped install insulation at the new housing facility of Two Sparrows Village at Christian City.
