A group of us were talking the other day on how you motivate people to volunteer again like the some of the old timers did and still do.

That is an issue that can be the subject of much discussion and debate; we do know we still in Conyers-Rockdale have volunteer civic groups like the Rotary Clubs and Kiwanis, Lions Club, Progressive Citizens Club, Shriners and the Pilot Club. We are fortunate to have these groups because without their community efforts and giving, our taxes would be much higher as people would have to be paid to perform the duties that these good folks provide for free.

You have a chance to support one of those groups right now. On May 1 the Conyers Rotary will be holding their annual Golf Tournament at the Cherokee Run Golf Course here in the city.

The Rotarians use the money raised by this tournament to support almost every worthwhile charitable project that there is in Conyers-Rockdale –  aiding homeless families and domestic violence victims, feeding hungry families, bringing Christmas smiles to children in need, helping homebound senior citizens and so much more.

If you or your family has ever been touched in anyway by the Conyers Rotary here is your chance to pay back the kindness.

You can put together a golf team for the day. The total cost is $500; that includes all fees and food, you can be the sponsor of a hole for $150; for our larger companies whose people live in our community and enjoy the benefits, here is your chance to sign up to help sponsor the tournament. For more information, call 404-915-6810 or look for the form in this April 11 edition.

We strongly believe that we have a strong caring community and that includes our major business. We urge you to get involved it only takes a few minutes to fill out the form.

To our Conyers Rotarians thank you for what you do for our community for the rest of our great civic groups. What you do for all of us is the very heart of caring for our community; keep up the great work.
