Remembering Those Who Serve

Roswell Rotary honors the men and women who defend of our country and protect our communities.

Veterans Empowerment Organization: VEO’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for homeless veterans on their road to self-sufficiency. We support the VEO with:

  • Collection of supplies
  • Participation in Veterans Day Parade
  • Volunteering at VEO Barbeque
  • Collection of hoodies at Christmas
  • Attending the Annual Gala

Memorial Day Ceremony - Roswell Remembers: Remembering those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom, we gather on the lawn at City Hall each Memorial Day. The program features the presentation of colors, the National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance, laying of the wreath, Lest We Forget POW-MIA tribute and keynote speech. After a 21-gun salute and taps, families enjoy a picnic and band.

First Responder Recognition: At our August 2 meeting we honored our Roswell police officers, EMT’s and firefighters and learned about their service to our community. Speakers included our Mayor, Police Chief and Fire Chief.

9/11 Tribute Ceremony: Remembering the victims of the worst terrorist attack in American history, we coordinate with the City of Roswell each September 11th for a solemn time of reflection at the lake in Roswell Area Park.

Honor Air: Every other year we honor Veterans who served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam with a trip to Washington, DC to visit their memorials. Funding comes from donations by Roswell Rotarians, our Golf & Tennis Tournaments, and an Invitational Basketball Tournament at Roswell High School.
