Rocking The Wheel at the Genworth 10 Miler

DID YOU KNOW that you can see the Genworth 10 Miler results dating all the way back to 1974 on their website? We had Rotarians all around the start/finish line this weekend. Congrats to Chad Mooney, Billy Flint, James LaPrade, Scott Brabrand & Geoffrey Kershner for all finishing in the top 40 in their respective divisions.

One of our newest members Billy Hansen ran his VERY FIRST 10 Miler this weekend as well! Chad Mooney finished 7th in his division, 50th overall and is officially our "Fastest Lynchburg Morning Rotarian" with a time of 1:08:31! Such a joy to support each other while wearing the wheel around town :)Until next year!

BMS Direct Celebrates Million Dollar Expansion

The BMS Direct family opened its doors to the public on Tuesday, September 20th to celebrate it's newest million dollar expansion.  The solar panel array on their facility is one of the largest in the entire state of VA.  Past President James LaPrade invited the club and there were numerous Rotarians and community leaders present.  

One of the most exciting moments was when James awarded Jeffrey Betterton his longevity bonus for his 23 years of service.  Wonderful example of living out the Rotary way in our community as we seek to lead our co-workers and employees. 

Congrats to the BMS Direct family.  Thanks for inviting the club to share in your special day.
