President's Message
It's Not All About The Candy

This was the first year I was involved with our Youth Day Parade and I can't wait to help again next year. Working with our youth to assemble the tower of hero power was a blast. Seeing kids of all ages working together to build the float out weighs the fun of tossing 400 pounds of candy to the crowd. A special thanks to Zach Fields and the committee for planning the float build and organizing the Interact volunteers.

This Week's Speaker

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!

GRSP Weekend Host Families Needed

The North Fulton Rotary Clubs are hosting a GRSP weekend and looking for volunteers to host students. This is a great way to meet some awesome kids from around the world. Hosting starts by picking your group up in Alpharetta on Friday evening and ends by dropping them off on Sunday morning to head back to school. 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.
