At our last meeting, Exchangite Louise Branham , along with Barbara Monday, Founding Member, and Executive Director of DIGS presented our program.
Developing Independence, Growth and Security, (DIGS) was founded to help provide safe housing, work and leisure opportunities for adults with developmental challenges. Barbara provided a short history of DIGS and then talked about the activities being provided for their clients. A high point of DIGS accomplishments is the Barbara and Lamar Paul Home which was completed in 2014 and houses 4 men. Barbara announced that their next effort will be to provide a home for women that are in the same situation.

Exchangite Larry Walker will be posting a daily segment on the FRC Facebook page leading up to April and Child Abuse Prevention….. Here is the first post…..
Today “Let’s Talk About” Pinwheels – Our kick-off for Child Abuse Prevention month will take place on Monday April 1st 11:00 A.M. at the Dempsey Building on Turner McCall Blvd. Each pinwheel represents one confirmed case of abuse/neglect in a Floyd County family for the year 2018. The good news is that number is decreasing. This year we will be placing 91 pinwheels at the Dempsey Building. The FRC and many other agencies in Rome/Floyd County are working together to prevent child abuse in our communities. Please join us on April 1st. Wear your BLUE in honor of the month, dress comfortably and come be a part of the move to keep our children safe.
Next “Let’s Talk About” a Blue Monday contest for Exchange Club members and a local restaurant that will be contributing 10% of their proceeds on one of our Blue Monday’s this year. We are – “Working Together To Decrease Child Abuse” Join us.
The FRC is now accepting nominations for the annual Katie Dempsey Star Volunteer Award. Nominations are due March 31 st . For details about this award and for a nomination form, please click here .
Jeremy Smith gifted the FRC with one of his creations the weekend before Night at the Movies. It is a beautiful piece and is a 4 ½ foot sculpture. Jeremy just wanted to do something that would benefit children and families. Tickets are $10 each or 3/$20. We’ll draw for this on 4-1-19 at our annual Placement of the Pinwheels (11 AM in front of the Dempsey Building on Turner-McCall) and kick off our Child Abuse Prevention month with a bang!
