President's Message

After working hard over the last several weeks to get all of the citations and awards submitted to District 6900 and Rotary International, I needed an infusion of energy. Starting the week off with Read Across Roswell and ending the week with Teddy Keyserling stealing the show at our club meeting I am re-energized by their youth. I hope that you get a chance to volunteer (Roswell Relays) or engage with kids we serve (Interact Day) in the coming weeks and some of their energy rubs off on you too.

This Week's Speaker
Why The 2020 Census Matters

Alex Kaufman and Lisa Carlisle are a couple of our are representatives for the 2020 Census and will kick off a conversation this week about why the census matters.

Save The Date | Thursday, May 7
Give a Pint.  Get a Pint.

Donating blood doesn’t hurt. It’s safe. And Roswell Rotary is making it easy for you by bringing the mobile donation center here.

And Variant Brewery thinks that cookies may not be enough to get you to donate, so they are offering a free pint of their outstanding beer to induce you to do a good deed.

For more information about donating, or to volunteer, please contact Hal Schlenger at HSchlenger@GreatSouthBenefits.com or 770-335-0077.
