Annually, each Rotary Club in Georgia sponsors a rising junior to receive the Rotary Youth Leadership Award and attend the RYLA Conference. This year, Heeth Varnedoe, the son of Heeth and Susan Varnedoe of Thomasville, will represent Brookwood School in June at the leadership conference at Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus. Along with other students from across the state, Varnedoe will attend an intensive week of developing leadership and character skills. Participants also will be exposed to a variety of issues while meeting with active community leaders.
As part of Thomasville’s Victorian Christmas, two tours are held to teach guests the history of the town’s most prominent early citizens. One tour is of the old cemetery and the other is of the historic Victorian homes.
