Happy Birthday, Rotary Club of Conyers

Happy 50th birthday Rotary Club of Conyers!
The Rotary Club of Conyers celebrated their 50th birthday this month. Tommy Morgan, pictured far left, having served in the club for 48 of those 50 years was there to help celebrate. Ed Cowan, pictured next to Tommy, was also present and has served 45 years. 

With District Conference Coordinator Carol Colon and District Conference Chair Margie Ensley

Exceeding all expectations.
Registrations for conference, including those attending the Saturday evening dinner, have exceeded 370. Conference chair Margie Ensley and conference coordinator Carol Colon are bringing their “A” game to make sure this conference will be spectacular! The response has been so good that the Embassy Suites room block for Thursday evening has been sold out. Here’s what you can do…Stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, connected to the same parking lot as conference center, on Thursday evening. Then move to the Embassy Suites on Friday morning. The move will put you with the rest of the district and it helps fill our commitment to Embassy Suites for Friday and Saturday evening. 

Yours in Rotary Service,
