Members of the newly formed Long County Rotary Club recently planted about two dozen white oak saplings to beautify the community. Nine trees were planted at the Long County Recreation Department and others were planted in various other sites in Ludowici.
Newly elected Long County Rotary Club President Brandi Castaño eagerly accepted the trees from Rotary District 6920 Governor Felix Smith, with the planting of 3000 white oak saplings in the 58-club district one of his goals during the year so as to add positively to the environment.
"We are thrilled to already be active in improving our county, and the trees will be a reminder of our first project in Long County," said Brandi.
Long County Rotary Club meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 5:30 p.m. at the Long County Board of Education Central Office. The speaker for the January 11 meeting is Brooklyn Waters, a Tattnall County High School Interact Club member, who will share her experiences attending RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) in Brunswick at the Coastal College of Georgia in June of 2023. The Interact Club is a junior Rotary Club in the high school.
