President's Message
Well Wishes

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

This past week, we received numerous seventy anniversary well wishes from Rotarians and friends.

All were special, but the one that stole my heart was from this young man at STARHouse.  It's a blessing to serve. 

This Week's Speakers
Laws of Life Essay Winners

Welcome Felix Fisch of Independence High School who will share his Laws of Life Essay.

The Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest is a character education and ethical literacy program for high school students. It encourages teenagers to articulate their values and ideals, and it recognizes and rewards good character.

While providing high schools with an effective, cost-free character education program, the Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest changes students’ lives for the better. As students reflect on the values and principles that matter most to them, something magical happens. Through the power of the pen, students begin to see themselves and others with a new perspective. 

Each year, more than 40,000 Georgia students write a Laws of Life essay.

Our goal is to raise $1400 as we have 401 teachers at four (4) Title 1 schools (Mimosa Elementary, Vickery Mill Elementary, Hembree Springs Elementary and Elkins Point Middle  in Roswell, but but wouldn't it be great if we could support more of our teachers?

New Member Profile
Alesia Booth

Alesia has been a member of the Roswell community for 22 years, moving from Littleton, Colorado. One of the reasons she settled in Roswell was the ‘community atmosphere’ that was advertised, great schools and wonderful parks/green spaces. Today her daughters are proud Roswell High School graduates who participated in volunteer activities across the city (Roswell Rec/Parks art apprentice, various environmental projects) during their years of matriculation.

Alesia has a service history in other organizations, serving as founding member of Women in Innovation, board member (Atlanta Innovation Forum, Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council, Women Impacting Public Policy) and participating member (all the previously mentioned organizations). In addition, she has chaired the Trustee committee for Christ United Methodist church as well as member of the One Board for the church for several years. As a Roswell resident, she was in the inaugural class of the Roswell Core program that explores the different city departments and the programs that are offered, how they impact our lives as residents and identify areas for improvement. She is also involved with the Roswell Tourism Ambassador program.

Her interest in joining Rotary is to fulfill that basic human need to be connected to community – to give back in time and talent to build. She has a strong personal interest in creating opportunities to develop our youth, ensure quality of life interests for our elderly neighbors and be a part of conserving the overall community-oriented environment she sought out as a new resident 22 years ago.
