Get Up To $300 In Matching Funds

As we approach the end of the year we all get inundated with requests for giving and we ask that you consider the Rotary International Foundation when planning your year end donations. The club will match your gift dollar for dollar up to $300. That means your next Paul Harris Fellow only cost $700 instead of $1000. Please see Michael Agurkis if you are interested in taking advantage of the matching funds.

Costume Contest

Our club meeting falls on Halloween this year and we have some spooky fun planned. Our Interact Clubs will be with us to kick off the year, so come dressed up to compete in a club costume contest, help us provide treats to the students and hear ghost stories from Roswell Ghost Tours. The kids will love this and we might have a little fun too!

In between you feed them breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings and join the whole group (including your family) for dinner on Saturday night. If you are interested in hosting, please contact Alex Kaufman at (404) 964-5587.
