President's Message
A girl just wants to have FUN!

One of the best things about being President of Roswell Rotary is my involvement with the multiple service projects.

Last Saturday was a fun filled morning with an Easter Egg Hunt at the Drake House. We hid eight hundred eggs.  Yes, eight hundred eggs!  Seeing the smiles as the kids hunted for the candy filled eggs will always be engrained in my heart.

At Harvey Smith’s place, a group was priming picnic tables that soon will be distributed to what Leslie Bassett refers to as “the paint by numbers group”. No one complained about the paint that somehow covered their shoes, clothes, much less their bodies. All for a good cause.

Another day of service with Roswell Rotarians. What fun!

This Week's Speaker
International Grant Update

Born and raised in Roswell, Langdon Hollingsworth is an Industrial Engineer who has dedicated his professional career to public service. After graduation from Georgia Tech, he spent two years living in the remote Darien province of Panama working for a clean water nonprofit, Solea Water, that brought fresh drinking water to thousands of people across the country. He was heavily involved in the expansion of Solea Water by developing a partnership with the local nonprofit, Lunches for Learning, that raised funds to install community-sized filters in four schools in the Nacaome Valley. Now in graduate school studying Humanitarian Logistics and Business Administration, Langdon hopes to learn a new set of valuable skills that can be applied to increase the efficiency of non-profits operating both locally, and in Latin America.

Our goal is to raise $1400 as we have 401 teachers at four (4) Title 1 schools (Mimosa Elementary, Vickery Mill Elementary, Hembree Springs Elementary and Elkins Point Middle  in Roswell, but but wouldn't it be great if we could support more of our teachers?
