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
Time to reflect.
As we close out our Rotary calendar year let me reflect on what we have accomplished as a club. Looking at the numbers we have increased our membership by over 9% and have increased the percentage of our membership being women. Much of the growth of our club has come because of the addition of our Roswell Rotary After Hours Satellite club which has lowered the average age of our membership! Not only are we increasing our numbers, but the numbers don’t reflect the energy and passion that this new group of members brings into our club.
A group of Roswell Rotarians made a trip down to Panama to view the very successful completion of our first global grant for $65K which seeded the ability to secure a second global grant in this region for $180K. As a result of your generous giving, two new communities have fresh water delivered to their homes and more to come. Roswell Rotarians you are changing the world!
We have funded our Behavioral Health campaign with the WellStar foundation to help combat the growing problem in mental health within our community, focusing on our school aged children. This effort will develop a series of professional podcasts and video tools which will be used to help those in need at our schools, churches and other NGO’s in our community and beyond.
Our club is the most active club in the world! Take a look at all of the service projects and activities we participated in and be proud Roswell Rotary!

Join us this Thursday as we recognize everyone in this club for their contribution to another great year for Roswell Rotary through some special awards. It has been a pleasure to serve you as your president. Thank you for this honor.
It feels like yesterday. Terry's year has gone by so quickly and there is so much to show for it! You don't want to miss Thursday's Meeting. We need everyone there to honor Terry's year and to be there for the awards! What a trip! And what a legacy! Well done President Terry!
Our next After Hours meeting is tonight! Same time, same place. Guest speakers include former Roswell Rotary President Elect John Carruth who will speak about the Rotary Foundation, and recent GRSP student, Panashe Sivindani, who will share her experiences in the program. All are invited!
Exciting News! 2022 Tournament Chair Leslie Bassett club tournament meetings will begin this week before Rotary at 11:30am and will continue every Thursday before Rotar until the tournament date Monday September 12 at Brookfield Country Club. . Everyone in the club is automatically on the Tournament Committee and we need your participation! This tournament is our main fundraiser for the year and will determine how much money we can grant to our non-profits and charities.
If you are new to the club, know that this project is THE BIG ONE and such an incredible way to get to know club members. Serving together forms relationships that will last for years! You want to get involved. The payoff for the club and for your personally are limitless.
Another date to remember is August 17 for the tennis clinic. Always popular, you want to get this date on your calendar as well. It's a fun part of the Hagan Cup Classic which is now in its 10th year!
So fasten your seatbelts and get ready to take off for the Roswell Rotary 2022 Golf & Tennis Tournament. Come to the meeting early (11:30am) to get the scoop.
You're invited to join After Hours at their first percentage night! Ten percent of proceeds will go towards the Veterans Empowerment Organization. Please come out and bring a friend as we support a worthy organization!

See you there!
Sharing some of the pictures from the annual Past Presidents Dinner. We all appreciate the contributions of each of these past presidents of the Roswell Rotary Club. We stand on their shoulders and they continue to help us build dreams for the future. If you are new to RRC, any one of these amazing individuals would be a great person to have a conversation with. They have so much to share and they will help to spark your own dreams for your future role in Roswell Rotary!
The last After Hours meeting was one of our best yet! Bestselling author Chris Tuff came out to talk about his most recent book, Save Your Asks. He kept the audience on the edge of their seats by sharing his real-life experiences and words of wisdom for young professionals.
AND, we welcomed two new members to our club: Grace Peoples and Natalie Cook. Welcome to the Rotary family!
