Presidents Message

Last week our community celebrated a new season of Alive in Roswell and Roswell Rotarians showed up in force as a flash mob on Canton Street dancing to "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang. Thanks to Nancy Alterman for organizing this great time and to all the Rotarians who put on their dancing shoes.

Our very own Andy Williams provided some great energy to our meeting last week highlighting all of the activity in the city which is making Roswell a great destination for visitors including the movie industry! We have so much to be grateful for here in Roswell and as Rotarians we continue to make our community a better place to live work and play.

With the summer months in front of us, I remind everyone that no one man or woman is responsible for the success of our Golf and Tennis tournament. So, as you conduct your business and socialize with friends, look for those opportunities for the “Ask”. We need many new corporate sponsorships as well as individuals to join in the fun.

“Look not only to your own needs, but also to the needs of others”.

This Week's Speaker
Dan Jourdan -- Sales Energizer

Our speaker this week is Dan Jourdan: https://danjourdan.com/ Dan is a highly sought after Sales Coach. He will be inspiring and encouraging us to go out and get sponsorships and golf and tennis packages "sold."

Hal's Humor Scope

5 Simple Keys To Success

I recently met a 25 year old young man who already has a net worth 5 million dollars. When I asked him for his secret to his early success he attributed it to the following 5 things:

1. Wake up at 5 am every morning and meditate for one hour.

2. Read at least one book a week.

3. Exercise one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening.

........Please see "Hal's Humor Scope Part 2" below for the rest of the story.  :-)

Sleeves up on August 27th
Roswell Rotary Blood Drive at Gate City

"I was diagnosed with multiple melanoma 10 years ago," shared past RI District Governor Bob Hagan. "During 9 rounds of chemotherapy, I had to have 8 pints of blood . Friends gave, family gave , Rotarians gave . YOU giving blood saved my life and many others. We must have an ample supply of blood of all different types . I encourage all of us to give blood, it does save lives. We together , make a difference, just like Rotary makes a difference. We save lives."  As if Bob and other Rotarian's stories aren't enough inspiration to donate, Gate City Brewery is offering a "Pint for a Pint," for members, members' employees, friends and family who register for a time to donate blood. Donate a pint of blood, and receive a pint coupon for any Gate City libation.  IF you can't give make a point of asking your friends and family members that can give and join us at Gate City all day on August 27th.

Click here to reserve 60 minutes on Aug 27 to donate. For more information, contact Darrell Bartlett or Hal Schlenger.   Our thanks to Pat Rains and Michael Curling for their current and past help saving lives in our community.
