We had a busy meeting last Thursday at Bremen Rotary! Our Assistant District Governor, Guy Moore, was one of our guests as he presented our club with TWO awards! Brandall Lovvorn, Rotary president in 2015-2016 accepted the award of 100% participation in Rotary Foundation Giving as well as 100% participation in our Polio eradication efforts! Wow! We are so proud to have these two honors! 
 

Our guest speaker was brought to us by Mrs. Tara Chapman; his name is Mr. Tommy Baker with Paxen. Mr. Baker graduated from Shorter University with a degree in Middle Education. He has taught in public schools for 18 years and coached Basketball and Tennis. He also has been awarded, "Teacher of the Year, twice! He was very informative about Paxen and what they offer for our communities. They offer two programs to help with job placements for those who have not received their GED and for those that are graduates but can not find the appropriate career paths. They are funded by federal grants and are truly beneficial in helping young adults achieve their career goals.
