FAMILY OF ROTARY
Our membership cares deeply about the needs and concerns of our members. We don’t want to miss an opportunity to reach out in friendship when such concerns arise. The chairperson of this committee is Lynn Dunn and all news should be directed to her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Amy and I are just returning from our District Conference where we shared in fellowship with other likeminded Rotarians from District 6900 and celebrated another year of great accomplishments in making our world a better place to live. Roswell Rotary once again shined as we will bring home some new felt to hang up for Club of the Year! Congratulations to Lynne and her leadership and every Roswell Rotarian who made it all happen. Also, a special thanks to Chris and Tracy Archer who did a great job in the hospitality suite with great food, beverages and of course lots of fun dancing. We are a month into a new Rotary calendar year and award or no award, Roswell Rotary will continue to do what we do best, give back to our community and have fun doing it! Roswell Rotary Rocks!
Speaking of giving back, you don’t want to miss this week’s meeting! We will be hearing from our very own Talaya Parker about how Home Stretch is truly changing lives. Coach McFarlin will also be calling on some of his good friends who are professional baseball and football players to join us at our meeting and talking about their commitment to helping in our golf and tennis tournament. Some hall of fame players will be at our meeting and we ask that you are respectful of their time at our meeting as there will be opportunities on September 13th at Brookfield CC for autographs.
Zoomit, Maskit or Live, we are here for you! Roswell Rotary wants to make our meetings safe, available, convenient, and comfortable to all members and guest. So, if you feel comfortable with a mask or no mask, live or on zoom join is in any way that makes you feel comfortable and safe.
If Zoom is more your style, we are going to have Zoom open for those who prefer to be in the comfort of their own home, office, or beach for that matter! Here is the link…………https://zoom.us/j/94396148304?pwd=ek05VmtwWVRZZTJYKzR3V1pzVFA1QT09
Since 1993, HomeStretch has been guiding working homeless families toward increased self-reliance and stability. HomeStretch provides supportive housing and programs that equip working families to regain and sustain permanent housing. Talaya Parker, HomeStretch's Executive Director, will share how HomeStretch is impacting our community.

Now more than ever…it’s time to Give The American Red Cross is currently facing a Blood Emergency…don’t delay sign up now!!
All we are asking is to have you consider one of two things. Personally donate blood or if for some reason you can't get a friend, family member or your neighbor that can and get them signed up for August 27th at Gate City. Many of us have been effected one way or another by Covid. Our friend and Roswell Rotarian Jonathan Crooks is fighting to beat this and requires blood just like many others who are ill. We have the privilege to share the gift of life with another person and we have a simple process to make it happen. The pint you donate just may be the gift of life that person needs. I hope you will take a few minutes out of your day to offer the gift of life to another person by donating a pint a blood! 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.
This is what make earns Roswell Roswell such a great reputation
....and "Club of the Year" recognition.
Plan to attend.....and think about bringing a friend or prospective new member.
If you believe in Rotary's mission and recognize the value our club brings to our community and our world, then share it with others!
