President's Message
Moving From The Past To The Present

The last two weeks we have learned about the origins of our city and our club. Over the next few weeks we will shift to the present day with a focus on the needs of neighbors. As you think about supporting our fundraiser it is important to consider the impact of the millions of dollars put back into local charities over the years and what our city might be like without the generosity of Roswell Rotarians past & present.

This Week's Speaker
North Fulton Poverty Task Force

Suburban poverty is on the rise, while not always easy to see. The North Fulton Poverty Task Force will share a look at our 'invisible neighbors', and what it means for our community. What does financial vulnerability look like in North Fulton? Why are open jobs staying vacant for so long in our area? How much does it really cost to get by in our neighborhoods? What does it mean for all of us?

We are looking for the next Rotarian

Bring a non-member with you to Variant Brewing and your first pint is on us. Don't think of this as a time-share sales pitch, but a casual way to introduce the people in your life that say, "what's Rotary?" to our club. This event is perfect for 30-40 year old friends, family, neighbors, co-workers or employees that have a heart for service and you think would be a great addition to our club.
