MAYO — The Rotary Club of Mayo announced a pair of upcoming events at its club meeting July 24.
First up is the 21st annual golf tournament on Saturday at the Lake City Country Club, a collaborative effort between the Mayo Rotary and Mayo Quarterback Club.
There will be door prizes at the event that have been donated. There are currently 20 teams — of four people each — signed up to participate, and there is room for more. To play, interested golfers should contact Joey Pearson. The tournament will tee off at 8:30 a.m., and will include friendly competition in both putts and long drives.
Prizes will range between $100 and $300 for first, second and third place in the tournament.
Rotary will also be hosting a Staff Appreciation Day on Wednesday in the form of a lunch prepared for the all school staff at the Lafayette County High School cafeteria.
The luncheon will start at noon and there is to be a guest speaker present at the luncheon. New staff will be recognized at the luncheon, as well as a show of gratitude to all school staff for the roles they play in the lives of the students.
The guest speaker will be Lou Miller, a former Madison County superintendent, whom retired in 2012. She will be speaking about “The Tree is in the Seed.” She will ask the teachers to recall their start in education as a student, then as a teacher, and celebrate the great successes throughout the district, highlighting the importance of building relationships and mindset growth through the power of words. Lou Miller believes, “Through good practice in Lafayette, the District will continue to reap a bountiful harvest.”
