The Salvation Army is known for it's seasonal fund raising efforts but it does year around events that also require funding. The Thomasville branch of The Salvation Army will be holding their 10th annual celebration.

"You're in the Army Now" and will be held on Friday May 9th at Thomasville First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. There will be plenty of food and entertainment.

"All of the services and programs that I offer here locally in Thomas, Brooks, and Grady County, I have to raise the money so the funding comes from donations from individuals, fundraiser's that we do, we do have a few corporate grants, but everything has to be raised here," said  

The dinner will start at 6:30pm and the program will begin at 7:15pm. Tickets are $12 per person in advance, $15 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at Al Dixon Men's Wear, and Rayann's Christian Bookstore.
