Being Recognized For Doing Good

There is nothing like a little healthy competition, especially when you are competing to best serve your community. Rotary divides clubs into four categories based on size and Roswell Rotary is in Category IV with well over the 100 member benchmark. The clubs in each category compete with each other for the coveted “Club of The Year” banner. Roswell Rotary has made it a tradition to win Club of the Year or runner up for category IV each and every year. Roswell Rotary was even named the “Club of the Decade” for the great work the club did from 2000-2010.
