President's Message
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!

Free Pops for Teachers
King of Pops

Show your support  for over 400 Title 1 school teachers in the Roswell Rotary jurisdiction by providing King of Pops during teacher appreciation week in May.

King of Pops calls these donations an Unexpected Moment of Happiness (UMOH). 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?

For more information or to donate click  free pops for teachers.   Contact Ken Carter at 404-386-3214 or carter@kingofpops.com for more details.
