Preserving the Past
Have you noticed the landscaping and new LED sign at Roswell High School? The campus looks great.
In 1990, Past President Skipper Hoke was instrumental in building the front entrance marque. In was dedicated from Roswell Rotary to the first graduating class. A beautiful marker was placed on the marque. The plaque served us well, but after 31 years needed to be replaced.
Thanks to Past President Trummie Patrick who handled arrangements for the new plaque. A special thanks to Richie Rosebush of Lang Signs who generously donated and installed it on behalf of Roswell Rotary.
Our legacy continues.

Thanks to Alicia, we have identified 14 local sailors who are deployed on the USS Nimitz in the Persian Gulf. the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Red Sea and USS Ronald Regan in the South China Sea. The Nimitz operates and trains alongside regional and coalition partners, and provides naval aviation support to Operation Inherent Resolve. The Ronald Regan conducts maritime air defense operations in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific. The Dwight D. Eisenhower provides a wide range of flexible mission capabilities, including maritime security operations, expeditionary power projection, crisis response, counter-terrorism, and security cooperation.
