President's Message
Having Fun Together

Last week we showed some prospective members the secret sauce that makes Roswell Rotary a fantastic club, the fun we have together. With a hump day this week and the tournament next week, we are geared up to have a great time building the friendships that make the hard work of serving the community a joy to do together.

This Week's Speaker
Did You Know...?

Elywn Gaissert will lead the discussion into our rich history of supporting our community and stepping up to help others when the need arises. You may not know that organizations like the local YMCA, Jacob's Ladder or the Roswell Arts Festival got going because of members of Roswell Rotary. This tradition continues with service efforts like Huskies Helping Huskies.
