What an incredible THREE months for Roswell Rotary! We held a great tournament full of fun, fellowship and fundraising, provided $10,000 of equipment to the RHS Construction program, honored our First Responders, purchased mats and blankets for the NFCC Warming Center, kicked-off Interact in 10 schools and Be THE Voice in 9, launched a new website and Rotascope and so much more! Roswell Rotary really does ROCK!
We have also begun providing a series of programs called “Making Mentors.” We have been inspired to be everyday leaders, focus on our attitude, find our passion, be mindful of our lives and relationships, mentor our youth, and creatively share peace in our world. I have encouraged you to share what you heard with others—our youth, young adults and really all the people that God puts in your path, because the more you share the more powerful the message becomes.
This week, we will hear from Tyler Bowser. Thanks to Kathy Igou, I met Nancy Cranford, a board member of the Veterans Empowerment Organization. The world is a funny place sometimes. At the time she introduced me to VEO, I didn’t know that Roswell Rotary would hit the pause button on Honor Air. I didn’t know that we might not be doing Adopt-A-Platoon. But, I did check out the VEO website and was literally moved to tears by Tyler’s story and the work VEO is doing right here in Atlanta for our homeless veterans. (FYI—I am generally not a crier.) Check it out for yourself www.veohero.org. I am a believer in the words of Maria from The Sound of Music, “When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window." Nancy’s sharing VEO with me months ago was a “window.” This club has a huge heart for veterans and I believe Roswell Rotary will impact veterans who are truly in need through VEO. Come hear Tyler’s story and help us serve our veterans in a powerful hands-on way this year.
