Over The River, and Through The Woods, to Thomasville We Go…

playoff2With a huge win over Lithonia this past Friday, the Trojans advance to round two of the GHSA football playoffs. Our next game is way against Thomas County Central in Thomasville, GA. This will be quite a trek for the Trojans Nation, but transportation plans for the band have already been ironed out. Principal Brooks has already made arrangements for our school buses and drivers to transport the band, the cheerleaders and the football team to the game on Friday. We are all excited and hoping for a Trojan victory for sure, but most importantly, we are asking that the community keep everyone traveling down to Thomasville in your thoughts and prayers for safe travels both ways.

We also have our All-In-One pick-up days coming up at the end of the week as well. So don’t forget volunteer and/or stop by the Tabernacle Baptist Church parking lot either this Friday from 8:00am until 6:00pm or Saturday from 8:00am until 12:00pm to pick up your orders. Anything not picked-up by noon on Saturday will be donated to local food banks.
