Donation of books with labels honoring our speakers
We donate a library book honoring each of our speakers during the past year. We purchase the books, donate labels in honor of our speakers. We give each speaker a plaque after they speak each week and once a year we go to the school's library and put the labels in the books.
We held an event to recogonize kids need help with Human Trafficking. We had video, and different people from around the community. The city of Lovejoy partnered with us and we provided food for the event and brought exposure to this situation. Our other partner was Gigi's House a local home in Lovejoy for girls that have survived human trafficking

This fair was a vocational event that included booths where students can come and take a vocational assessment questionnaire to see what vocation might best suit them. Local businesses had hands demo stations at booths so that students could meet and understand various industries and what is involved with various vocations. Rotary helped to get local businesses to participate and also had a "What is Rotary" table to introduce students and their families to Rotary. We passed out Rotary brochures and materials and spoke to the students about Rotary and Interact Clubs. Several Rotarians that have businesses participated by having a hands on booth as well.
We recognize two students from each High School in Clayton County. The students honor one of their teachers that has made a difference in the learning experience. We give out prizes to each student and helps them pursue furthuring the academic career. This event highlights what great teachers and administrators we have in our local community. It also shows what a honorable career a teacher is because you can see what a difference they are making in the lives of these wonderful children.
Usually, people give gifts to the children of DFACS, but not so this year! The Children actually got to shop for gifts for others.
Children were receiving gifts but did not have the opportunity of experiencing the joy of giving. One Rotarian noticed and our club started the “Giving Side of Christmas” and the event has been a huge success.
