What is a Law of Life?

A Law of Life is a short, pithy saying or quotation that points to a core personal value or ideal. Oftentimes, a Law of Life serves as a memorable and meaningful moral compass on a person’s journey through life.

The Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest asks students to select their own Law of Life, and to write about how it applies to their lives. In doing so, students reflect deeply and write from the heart about what they think matters most. The contest celebrates the students’ stories and their often profound reflections, and proudly presents significant cash awards to students and teachers.

We are extremely lucky to have the local hometown heroes that we do in Peachtree City / Fayette County.  With the combined efforts of the Rotary Club, the PTC Rotaract Club, Starrs Mill High School Interact Club and our Rotary Community Corps, we were able to pack out multiple snack-packs to deliver to each Fire Station in Peachtree City and to each breakroom at Piedmont Fayette for our healthcare workers.  We hope this small token of appreciation brought a smile to their faces through the holidays and let them know how much we appreciate the heroic efforts they do each day and especially through our challenges in 2020!
 
Oh what fun!  Our Club thoroughly enjoyed being SANTA for our local seniors again this year!  It is always fun to bring a little hope and cheer to those in need - especially during the holidays!  From socks to coffee mugs, sheets to bathrobes and even some simple candy - we had fun doing the shopping for this year's event!  Thanks to Fayette Senior Services for all they do in our community!
