President's Message
Hello From Alaska!

I hope you enjoyed the history of Roswell last week. Along the same lines, this week we will learn about how our club and many of its traditions got started. Connecting to our city's and our club's past are the first steps toward connecting to our world. Over the next several weeks we will learn more about the specific needs of our community today. Through our tournament fundraising, countless volunteer hours and putting service above self, we will have a tremendous impact on those less fortunate.

This Week's Program | Past Presidents

Cheryl Greenway, 2005-06
