MANEY INDUCTED INTO NORTHEAST GEORGIA BUSINESS HALL OF FAME

Three new members of the Northeast Georgia Business Hall of Fame will be inducted Saturday at the Chattahoochee Country Club in Gainesville.

The ceremony will take place during Junior Achievement of Northeast Georgia’s Business Hall of Fame Gala.  The annual event highlights the careers and public service of the honorees, who are selected based not only on their business accomplishments, but for their extensive support of the community.  

Paul Maney - Although his roots are planted in Iowa, Paul has lived in Georgia for over four decades. During that time, he has become a devoted community member and philanthropist.  A retired IBM executive, Paul now finds fulfillment in his real estate investments and ownership of several North Georgia-based small businesses.

All proceeds go toward funding Junior Achievement programs in Northeast Georgia.  According to a press release, this academic year more than 8,000 students will be served by specially trained corporate volunteers in our area, teaching youth the fundamentals of free enterprise, business ethics, personal economics, and workforce development.

Lousiana Flood Relief
Chad Bingham lead a team with several trucks and trailers to provide flood relief to the residents of the Baton Rouge area in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge.  The caravan delivered 8,000 to 10,000 pounds of food and water to a church, the food bank, hospital and salvation Army.
The project was supported by the Mill Creek High School Interact Club, the Rotary Club of Winder, Rotary Club of Jefferson and the Rotary Club of Gainesville

Braselton Rotary Club Provides Relief for Louisiana Flood Victims

 
Braselton Rotary President Chad Bingham and the club's liaison to the Mill Creek High School Interact Club, Carolyn Smith, assisted Interact members in loading the donations collected at the school to be delivered to Baton Rouge and Youngsville, Louisiana, after the recent disastrous flooding.
 
Mill Creek High School Interact Club members sort the items collected during a school-wide drive to help victims of the recent flooding in Louisiana. Jon Howell of the Jefferson Rotary Club and Chad Bingham of the Braselton Rotary Club loaded the donations of much-needed cases of water and clothing, toiletries and other items collected by the Jefferson Club. Ryan Jerrald of Ace Comfort Heating and Air, who donated his time to the relief effort trip, and Braselton Rotary Club president Chad Bingham loaded up Jerrald's trailer at one of the donated Premier Storage units.
 
Braselton Rotarians and Boys & Girls Clubs of Jackson County volunteers help to load one of the four trucks and trailers bound for Louisiana packed with relief aid donated by four Rotary Clubs, the Mill Creek Interact Club, West Jackson Elementary School, Jackson County Comprehensive High, local businesses and individual families. 
 
Donations were staged at two units at Premier Storage in Flowery Branch and then loaded into four trucks with trailers for the delivery ride to Louisiana on Sept. 26.  For Braselton Rotarians, it was all hands on deck for this "Act of Kindness" project to aid victims of the recent Louisiana floods.

The gratitude of having in-person delivery of much-needed items including bottled water and food as well as clothing and toiletries was overwhelming. Braselton Rotary President Chad Bingham said, "They appreciated it so much more than us just writing a check."
