President's Message
All In A Week...

Our club never sits still and are passionate members rally people around their causes. On Monday I was watching the National Championship coverage and there's Tim McFarlin talking about being the last coach to beat Trevor Lawrence. On Tuesday, I went to a panel discussion on fighting human trafficking with Dave McCleary and we got a nice shout out from Governor Kemp thanking Rotary for all our hard work. It was amazing to hear from survivors and how local businesses are helping them get their lives back. HHS Secretary Azar and Presidential Advisor Ivanka Trump see the work being done in Georgia as a model for the country. On Friday, our city honored Dr. Frank Lewis by renaming Dobbs Drive to Frank Lewis Drive. Frank was a long time member of our club and mentor to Lorraine Head who lead a fantastic ceremony to unveil the new sign. On Saturday, our friends at Gate City Brewing Company made the news again, being featured on CBS 46's Atlanta Small Business Network.

This Week's Speaker
Lunches For Learning

Many of our members have made Lunches For Learning and supporting those in need in rural Honduras their passion in life. In fact, the board meetings for Lunches For Learning qualify as a Roswell Rotary make up. This week we will get an update from Phil Dodson, Executive Director and hear from many of our members about why this pulls at their heart strings.
