An assessment team consists of per sons with expertise in counseling, in struction, school administration, and law enforcement.

School Safety Teams will also be in place for monitoring the needs of the school campus as well as safety needs of students.

The information con Rotary President Elect Aaron Haynes, Everritt Heaton (Gilchrist League), President Bob Clemons, and Rotary Assistant District Governor Chris Cowart. Gilchrist Rotary Thanks President Bob Clemons for a Great Year! Submitted Inspiration. Making A Difference. Service Above Self. These are just a few of the words Bob Clemons has instilled in the Gilchrist Rotary Club in his past year as our President. Bob has been a creative and enthusiastic leader and the infusion of energy he has brought to our Club has increased membership, attendance and productivity in our meetings. It has been a superb year! Some of the accomplishments in the past year include changing our name from the Trenton Rotary Club to the Gilchrist Rotary Club. This change was instituted after a majority vote to have our Club be more inclusive of all of Gilchrist County. The Four Way Test, a long-time Rotarian tool for guiding the things we think, say and do was brought to the forefront of all our meetings and functions. The Four Way Test is now on display in many Gilchrist businesses, our courthouse and many of our classrooms. We had our most successful ever Purple Pinkie Fundraising Campaign and collected over $1600 to eradicate polio. We had our most successful Fishing Tournament last month to raise monies primarily for the youth of our community. We distributed dictionaries to all third graders in November and had a very successful November to raise monies to start Interact Clubs at both Bell and Trenton High Schools. We started collecting dry goods and canned items and have contributed pounds of food to our local food bank. In April we partnered with the Rotary Clubs of Dixie and Levy Counties to apply for a grant to implement a project promoting healthy oral care and habits among adults and children in our communities, hoping to impact 4,000 children and families with this initiative. We hung and took down quilts for the Trenton Quilt Festival in March, supported Christmas on Main by hosting a booth and donating two bicycles and when two of our local senselessly slain in April we reached $1000 to the families of our slain With the idea of Making a Difference, Bob began keeping track and this past year our Rotarians have volunteered over 1,000 community hours and $10,000! What a productive year for our Club! President Clemons awarded a $7,000 check to Everritt Heaton to be used for the Gilchrist League, a cause we have long supported as we believe youth who are involved in sports are more likely to grow up to be good citizens and productive members in our community. Joanne Halter is our Rotarian in the Spotlight. Joanne, a Rotarian for two years, is a native of Gilchrist County and a third generation Floridian. A River Rat, Joanne has been married to Gary for 53 years and has 2 children and 4 grandchildren, whom she and Gary dearly treasure. Joanne loves being a Rotarian and is so very proud to be a resident of Gilchrist County.

We spent a fun few days watching the grandchildren play in the Gulf waters, build sand castles, and walking the beach collecting shells.

A boil sure is an easy way to feed a lot of people quickly. After our Sat urday night boil we always head to and the kids make smores. This year the smores had a new twist because we used a Reeses Cup in place of the traditional chocolate bar. If you are a smores fan be sure and try the Reeses Cups because it was really good.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters A few nights ago, my husband and I heard a comedian on television who conveyed his surprise over the apathy he feels when hearing a tragic report. He joked about trying to work up some compassion when hearing of a violent crime or other tragedy. As I watched, people in the audience were laughing, yet looking around to make sure others saw the humor in what he was saying. Before we get offended by his comments, lets understand where he was coming from. We can readily agree that we live in an age of information overload. In fact, we are likely to hear horrifying details on the hour of any given day that we turn on the news. Further, if we allowed ourselves to feel every report, we would never get the opportunity to recover from the grief produced by one event before another wave hits. Yet, do we dare admit to apathy? Believe it or not, the Bible actually warns us that this will happen. Matthew 24:12 says the following: And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. (ESV) This verse is contained in a passage with the heading, Signs of the End of the Age. We are drawing closer and closer to the day when Jesus will return. Apathy is just one of the signs we are to be expecting. However, as a believer in Christ, what should we do when apathy threatens to cause our hearts to callous over? We have already concluded that it can be tough on our hearts to have the depth of concern for every tragedy that it deserves. But we do have some things very close to our hearts that need no straining to evoke compassion. A great way to protect our self from growing cold is to make the connection. If we feel disconnected and indifferent when hearing tragic news, consider those involved as if they were someone close to you. How would you feel? Ask God to renew your sense of compassion for others and to respect their suffering and grief as you would desire yours to be respected. For over ten years now I have sat before my computer each week and asked God to help me write something to convince every reader their heart really does matter to God. We have studied countless passages together concerning marriage, parenting, trust and responsibility, all in an effort to help us experience Gods best in the area of relationships and so understand how much our own hearts matter. And they do. But this week, lets emphasize the word every that begins the last phrase of my column every week. Every heart matters to God, no matter the size, color, or condition. May God help them to matter to us too. New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

She took the hand some, peaceful, awesome swing home to Roger and he has had a blessed year watching deer and other of natures treasures and thinking on it. He thinks of his brother too, Charles, who had cancer in his life time and who is the reason behind the Scotts participation in and support of Relay for Life.
