Each excels in their studies and are model students through their positive attitude and enthusiasm, determination and effort as well as their attendance and making school a priority. The luncheon was held at Coosa Country Club.
The Junior Service League of Rome is making your holidays brighter with beautiful poinsettias from the sole supplier of poinsettias for Walt Disney World and SeaWorld.

Some 150 volunteers originally were sought but Executive Director Alli Mitchell now believes almost twice that many will show up. People will be in teams of 10 packing meals.

Local DJ Kylie Devaron has donated his talent for entertainment and Three Rivers Nutrition will be onsite for our participants who want an energizing treat to power them through the event. For more.
