Taking the slide
Congratulations to our newest member of the Heavy Hitters Club, Alisia Booth! She is relatively new to Roswell Rotary but yet she is always there to help when needed. And that smile is contagious! Thank you Alicia!
This last week we had a small group of Rotarians tour the Ron Clark Academy. Ron has spoke at our club many times but you cant get the total impact of his school until you tour the facility and see Ron and his staff in action. I can only hope that some of our local schools are willing to take the risk and make some form of alterations to the way we teach and engage with our students of Roswell. At the end of the tour, you can return to the vestibule by way of the stairs or by way of the slide, with the slide representing taking a different rout with an element of risk. Rotarians took the slide!
Read my mind!

Business networking Rotary-style continues on Tue, Jan 18 6:30pm (and Tue Feb 15)
Smarter Business Development When It's with Fellow Rotarians (multi-club event)
This is an opportunity for you or someone on your staff, or someone you are interested in recruiting to Roswell Rotary.
Our last gathering again drew a crowd from the Atlanta Metro, Dunwoody, Peachtree City, Roswell, Sandy Springs and Tucker clubs. While it had similarities to other networking events, you knew that attendees honored the integrity of the 4 Way Test!
This is what Paul Harris formed Rotary for 1905. Professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and conduct business together. Paul Harris was networking well before the term “networking” was used to describe connecting people in order to build a business network.
While Rotary is about "Service Above Self," there is a growing place for networking in Rotary, particularly for those responsible for generating revenue.
The next event moves to a new location for 2022:
Red Pepper Taqueria 4555 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Dunwoody, GA 30346, one block NE of Perimeter Mall
Please plan to join us on Tue, Jan 18 from 6:30 - 8:00pm. For more information, please contact Hal Schlenger HSchlenger@GreatSouthBenefits.com | (770-335-0077), or Johnathan Clark of the Tucker Club (email@example.com | 404.512.6058)
Roswell High School Career Day Feb. 4

What: 20 min talk with the class to relay your story about your career. Classes include: Computer Science, AV Tech, Broadcast Video, Marketing, Engineering, Architectural Design, Carpentry/Electrical, Construction, Cosmetology, and JROTC

Ways to Make things Engaging: Storytelling is always great. Or, have the students complete a case study or brainstorm. Speakers can also bring in artifacts or use games like Kahoot or Jeopardy to engage the students.
Special Need: In the past, it has been difficult to find Cosmetology professionals. Please feel free to find Business Owners to speak to those students. Students who enter this profession will be tasked with operating a business.
Contact Michael Gould at firstname.lastname@example.org or call his cell 770-617-2958 to volunteer or if you have questions.
