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 lynn.dunn@rmcpa.com

President's Message
100% Participation Needed

Our conversation last week around the financially vulnerable members of our community should have been an eye opener for anyone who attended the meeting. Roswell Rotary is on the front lines of serving those in need and I ask that every member of our club support our fundraiser in some fashion. Thank you to those that have already sponsored or volunteered to help out! Our ability to support our community is in direct correlation with the success of our golf and tennis tournament as 100% of the proceeds go directly to the charities we support. Please consider a sponsorship and/or donation and let Adele know how you can help.

This Week's Speaker
Mayor Lori Henry

Prior to being elected as Mayor in 2018, Lori previously served as a City Councilmember from 2001-2009 and in 2017. She has a strong history of public service and has served her community not only on City Council but also as a member of the Design Review Board, the Community Development Advisory Committee, and on several citizen advisory groups over the years. We look forward to Mayor Henry sharing the state of Roswell with our club.

Speaker Honorarium
Sending Care Packages To Deployed Troops

Each week as a way to honor our speakers we will send a box of goodies to the men and women of our armed services that are in harms way. These brave soldiers are putting their lives on the line for our freedom and this is the least we can do to thank them for their service.

Introduce A Friend To Rotary

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.
