*WOW!!! *

We are so excited to say that we have *640 students and teachers*
registered for the 1st Annual South Region Leadership Rally!

This is a great indication that we have wonderful teachers motiviating
their students to take the steps needed to become more involved above the
local level and learn leadership skills. Please take a moment and check the
list below for your chapter name and TOTAL number. Also the area officers
are asking each chapter to bring ONE canned good item for each student you
are bringing to the rally. This is a simple community service that we can
provide the people of Valdosta. This can also help any of you that may need
a community service activity for your program of work (POW). If you
participate in this we will be glad to take your picture and send you a
news release for your local newspaper.

Please keep a look out for more information in the next few days for more
logistics of the event!
