November 19, 2019 - The Rotary Club of Center had the unique opportunity to merge their Tuesday meeting with the Shelby County Junior Chamber of Commerce conference held at the Civic Center on November 19th.
Rotary members joined the J.C.C. students at their tables and enjoyed a lunch together. Rotary Club president Collin Mathews opened the Rotary meeting with appreciation to the Chamber of Commerce for inviting the Rotary Club to lunch and encouraged students to ask questions of the Rotarian at their table.
Just prior to the meeting Mayor Chadwick spoke to the group about being a Rotarian but most of all about being involved in your community. He encouraged students to seek out civic groups to join but to not only join but to most importantly be involved.
J.J. Ford, Rotary Club member said, "I enjoyed the opportunity to visit with the J.C.C. students at my table who were primarily from Timpson. The students made me proud to hear they were going to go to the Timpson square after school today to help decorate for Christmas. Donating your time to help others is what Rotary is about. Good job J.C.C. students!"
The Rotary Club four way test is 'Is it the truth, is it fair to all concern, will it build good will and better friendships, and will it be beneficial to all concerned?'
