Gus Thompson spoke to The Rotary Club of Effingham County about the Upward Basketball Ministry at Rincon United Methodist Church. This program is open to all youth, of all denominations, and has a short 10-week schedule that is complementary to county and city recreation programs so children can participate in both. While learning basketball skills, the participants also learn a great deal about sportsmanship and Christian values. For more information on the program, contact Rincon UMC. If you are interested in speaking to Rotary, contact Lainie Jenkins at 663-0131.
