President's Message
Promoting Peace

It was an honor for me to represent Roswell Rotary during a visit to Bulloch Hall with a French delegation considering locating their peace institute on the grounds of the Rodney Cook, Sr. Peace Park in Atlanta. The delegation has family history with the Roosevelt's and they were fascinated by the tour of Bulloch Hall. This small gesture will go a long way towards promoting peace around the world. Thanks to Bob Hagan and Lee Hollingsworth for helping me host this special event.

Introduce A Friend To Rotary

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.
