                   Master Motors Puts It in Drive

Motor Masters is a community based club open to all Barrow County students, with no dues or fees. One purpose is to raise money to purchase a used vehicle, fix it up, and donate it to the local women's shelter.

"Caffeine & Octane" heard about the club when students attended an event last March to raise money. Motor Masters is being featured in an episode of C&O that airs August 28th at 8PM.

Motor Masters' premier showing will be hosted at Sims Academy in the Academy CafĂ©. Common Ground will be selling snacks, food, and drinks. Sims is located at 985 Austin Road in Winder. Come support our students and community in this great cause.
