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
Thank you, Roswell Rotary Club!
This week we auctioned off a concert by The Mike Veal Band, and the opportunity to play golf with some big-name professional baseball and football players in this year’s golf and tennis tournament. Our guest Kurt Wilson was the high bidder of the Mike Veal band. Robert Fezza gets first dibs on which team he gets paired up with to play a round of golf followed by Kurt Hilbert and yours truly.
The big winners however are the 30 some charities in which Roswell Rotary supports each year. Because of the generosity of our great club and guests, we will help some folks get their life back on track at Homestretch, feed some hungry kids in Honduras, and provide education and medical support to our local community through WellStar. The generosity of every member in our club with gifts, time and money is overwhelming.
We look forward to seeing everyone this week, have some good ole fried chicken prepared once again by Juan and his crew and listen to the great things WellStar is doing to help combat the growing problem with mental health.

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

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!!
The Alien Run is great opportunity to volunteer for a great cause Ending Human Trafficking. This is a national Race and we are expecting over 1000 runners.
