Happy 70th Anniversary!
Chartered April 18th, 1951, who could have imagined the impact Roswell Rotary would have on our community and abroad.
Serving fried chicken and meeting at “the building under the water tower” I am certain no one dreamed that seventy years later we would be not only one of the strongest clubs in our district, but a club that is recognized worldwide.
We could not have done it without each of you.
Thanks for thinking big! Thanks for putting dreams into action!
Happy 70th Anniversary Roswell Rotary!

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?
