President's Message
Second Chances

For some of us, we have to hit the bottom of the hole we have dug for ourselves before we can start to climb our way out. For me it was boarding school, for those we heard from last week it was Vision Warriors that pulled us out of the hole. Bottom line is, we have all needed a hand up in our lives at some point. I hope last week's stories motivated you to continue the great work we do through Rotary to support our neighbors in need and give them a hand up.

This Week's Speaker
Roswell Police & Fire Chiefs

Our Police Chief James Conroy and Fire Chief Ricky Burnette will give us an update on the state of public safety in our community. Come prepared with your questions for our first responders.
