Tour of Coweta – Benefiting the Newnan Rotary Club

We are proud to support the 3rd annual Tour of Coweta which is on April 15, 2023 at 8:00am.

The century takes place on the beautiful country roads of Coweta County, Georgia. The event will start at 8am for all participants at the Historic Newnan Train Depot in downtown Newnan. From there, multiple routes will be available in 25, 45, 62, and 100 mile rides. The Tour of Coweta Century is fully supported.

2021 Ferst Annual Lewis Grizzard & Catfish Bike Ride

Please consider joining Marie and me for the 2021 Coweta Ferst Lewis Grizzard & Catfish Bike Ride in Moreland, Georgia.  This event will take place on October 3, 2021 at 8:00am starting at the Old Morland Mill in Moreland, GA.  There are 12 mile, 25 mile and 66 mile options to choose from. You can register in advance at: Lewis Grizzard & Catfish Bike Ride.

The Coweta Ferst Foundation is dedicated to providing age-appropriate books for every child under the age of five in Coweta County.  This mission is important because:

  1. Sixty-one percent of low-income families do not have a single piece of age-appropriate reading material in their home;
  2. One-third of Georgia’s children start school unprepared to learn; and,
  3. Seventy-five percent of Georgia’s students who are poor readers in the third grade will remain poor readers in high school.

The more words a child hears, the larger the child’s vocabulary and the larger the child’s vocabulary, the more likely the child will be a proficient reader.  However, in order to read with a child, books must be in the home. Each registration will enable Coweta Ferst to send an age-appropriate book to a child each month for a year.

If you cannot ride, you can still support this very important and worthy cause by becoming a Lewis Grizzard & Catfish Bike Ride Sponsor. We hope to see you there!
