Mentors Take a Swing with Young Golfers

A local men’s group took a swing at mentoring young golfers Saturday.

100 Black Men of Macon Middle Georgia played golf with young men from the Rights of Passage Youth Development Program. They’re all middle school boys from single mother families who might not have a father-figure to teach them to hit the ball around. They gathered at Bowden Golf Course in Macon.

“It’s going to take all of us working together to help insure that the youth of our community will be positive contributors to the Central Georgia area and the greater community,” said Tom Sands, President of 100 Black Men in Macon.

The program isn’t all fun and games, though. The kids also learn important life lessons.

“We get to do things that we haven’t done lately and it’s really educational and it teaches us how to get our life on the right track,” said Anthony Vinson who participates in the program.

100 Black Men of Macon Middle Georgia meet with boys from Rights of Passage once a month, for fun and educational activities.

  2. The most color combinations of French bedroom style furniture are
    poppy red & gold and blue & gold offering a trendy and contemporary look to the bedroom.
    The king forbade spinning on distaff or spindle, or
    the possession of one, upon pain of death, throughout the
    kingdom, but all in vain. Think about a song that you find particularly
    catchy, the catchiest part will have a simple and easy to repeat set of
    sounds, and this is what makes them so catchy.

  3. You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually one thing which I
    believe I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am having a look forward in your next put up, I’ll try to get the cling of it!
