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 email@example.com
If you missed last week’s meeting, well all I can say is, YOU MISSED IT, as this was not your normal Rotary Meeting!
Coach McFarlin and team pulled out all the stops by having Tim's celebrity professional football and baseball friends join us. Then he surprised everyone in the house with a live concert by the Mike Veal band. WE DANCED!
Susan Rumble organized the program with our very own Talaya Parker sharing how Home Stretch helps many local families like Gina Dubuisson’s. She shared her testimonial of her success in overcoming adversity and refocused her life with the help of Home Stretch and Roswell Rotary. WE CRIED!
And finally, Hal Coleman once again provided the humor at the end, offering to auction off and burn “the suit”. WE LAUGHED!
THIS is what Roswell Rotary is all about.
This week please invite your friends as Coach McFarlin and team will be the program where Steve Stroud will be auctioning off the chance to play golf with some big-name athletes. To top it off, we will auction off a performance by Mike Veal and band where the lucky winner may be having a party in the future with live entertainment. Come join us this week as we give back to the community and have fun doing it!
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://us06web.zoom.us/j/86497139508?pwd=QTBETGdwdjVrUjlCejBabWJ4eG55QT09
Thanks everyone for your energy and enthusiasm last week at our meeting! Our guests were BLOWN AWAY by our mission and our fun. But we can't rest yet.
Our charities need for us to raise as much money as we can for them and next week is going to be a great opportunity. So bring a guest who would like the experience of playing golf with a fun foursomes of sports legends...Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, Jessie Tuggle, Verron Haynes, Victor Green, and so many more. Or bid on the Mike Veal Band for your next event. Or the amazing David Yurman Brown & Company jewelry donation. And buy balls for the ball drop. Yours might be the lucky one for the whole jackpot!
We need lots of volunteers to make the tournament day Sept. 13th day run smoothly. So sign up at the golf & tennis table at the meeting or use the link below:
The Aeromedical Evacuations Team (Medivac) based in Qatar and serving in Afghanistan is desperately and URGENTLY in need of personal supplies. Roswell Rotary is responding to the request by shipping the below items directly to the AEOT base location. Anyone who wants to participate in the effort can do so by:
1. Shipping any of the below items directly from Amazon Prime to this address (Tip: Put "Bulk" before the item you're searching for; Amazon delivery date will say Sept. 15, but it will get there much earlier):
Name: EAES AEOT
Address: 379 EAES UNIT 61203
State: Armed Forces -- AE (this will be in drop down)
2. BEFORE WEDNESDAY AUG. 25 at 7 pm -- Contributing to the group gift by emailing what amount you'd like to contribute to Leslie Bassett: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your Rotary account will be billed.

You might think that Gate City Brewery offering a "Pint for a Pint," is why members, members' employees, friends and family would be quick to register for a time to donate blood. It's a plus but it's more than that.
Many of us have the privilege to share this gift with another person and the process couldn't be simpler. The pint you donate just may be the gift of life that person needs.
And if you can't give, which 2 out of 3 Rotarian's can't, please invite someone to give on your behalf. Ask a friend!
Donate a pint of blood, and receive a pint coupon for any Gate City libation. Once you give, you can be set up on the Roswell Rotary Blood Donor App! Please consider this act as this is the final week to get signed up!
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
The 9-11 First Responders Committee is in need of volunteers to build on the success of last year's first annual - First Responders Cookout. The cookout will be on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021 and run from 3pm to 8pm with the need to setup around 2pm. This new time period will allow us to serve 2 shifts of Fire, Police, and Rescue personnel at Fire Station #4 on Old Alabama Rd . . Please contact either Dave Young email@example.com, Jack Wyche firstname.lastname@example.org, Elwyn Gaissert email@example.com, or Gene Beckham firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions on the event and available hrs to assist. Please help us make this another great event upon which to thank our First Responders for what they do for us, every day !!!
We’re Back and Need YOUR HELP! Rotary Youth Exchange is shifting into gear to recruit outbound exchange students for the 2022-2023 school year and to recruit host families for our inbound student for that school year. Please direct any interested people to Alesia Booth email@example.com. You can also direct people to the Rotary Youth Exchange website: ryese.org. (It helps if interested people know we are in District 6900). We would love a few good volunteers from our club to help with recruiting and other activities related to Rotary Youth Exchange. You need to be an approved volunteer to interact with the inbound and outbound students – it is a U.S. State Department requirement. Becoming an approved volunteer involves a background check and a short State Department training – ALL ONLINE! Very Easy!! Please let Alesia know if you are interested in helping with this AMAZING program!!
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!
