At last week’s meeting, our high school youth stood before our membership announcing which city council members they would represent in the 71st annual youth day parade. I continue to be impressed with this generation of young leaders and future Rotarians. The weather Saturday morning could not have been better for the youth day parade. This tradition is one of the many things that truly makes Roswell unique and a great place to live, work and play. Our float was manned with lots of young candy throwers showing off their Youth Peace in Action and tie-die peace T-Shirts.
Last week's meeting also saw the induction of four new members into our club! According to our Membership Chair, Lee Patrick, we have many more in the queue. I anticipate that with the new creative membership categories, we will be welcoming more new friends who will be joining us in giving back to the community and having a blast doing so.
This week help me welcome our District Governor Mary Ligon to our meeting on Thursday. We will also have our Interact leadership present our YPA progress and our plans to create peace through our young Peacebuilders. Wear your tie-die Rotary Peace shirt!
