Saturday, September 25th was the inaugural Pickleball Tournament hosted in collaboration with the Tennis Center of Rome at Barron Stadium and benefiting the Exchange Club Family Resource Center. The day was gorgeous and almost $2300 was raised for the Family Resource Center! We appreciate a generous sponsorship from Exchange member Tom Couch and wife Linda as they signed on to be our first sponsor! We also gratefully accepted a $1000 donation from the Americanism Committee! Bill King presented this to Tina Bartleson, Executive Director of the Family Resource Center and John Fortune (Event Chair). Finally, hats off to John Fortune for braving the unknown world of Pickleball to pull off a great first event!

UPDATED MISSION STATEMENT:
The FRC Board of Directors recently voted to update our Mission Statement to one that better communicates our program. Our new mission statement is: We provide transformative in-home education and support to Floyd County families, empowering them to create safe, stable and nurturing homes so that their children can grow and thrive. Thanks Exchange for being a part of that work!
