FAMILY OF ROTARY
Our membership cares deeply about the needs and concerns of our members. We don’t want to miss an opportunity to reach out in friendship when such concerns arise. The chairperson of this committee is Lynn Dunn and all news should be directed to her at firstname.lastname@example.org
This week, we honor the men and women who, when asked, gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Please join us for a special Rotary meeting on Thursday and the Memorial Day Celebration on Monday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m. at Roswell City Hall.
Join us this week at the Roswell Rotary meeting for our Memorial Day Celebration. This is always a special pre-Memorial Day event to honor those that have given the greatest sacrifice to assure our American freedoms.
Each year, Dave Young, Chairman, heads up the Roswell Rotary Memorial Day committee as a joint effort with the City of Roswell to plan one of the southeast's largest Memorial Day ceremonies. This year marks Roswell's 22nd celebration. Thanks to many Roswell Rotarians and community members and businesses that provide time and monetary donations to make the ceremony a wonderful event.
The Memorial Day event is at the Roswell City Hall, Monday, May 27. The military ceremony begins at 11 a.m. This year's speaker is Colonel (Ret) Patricia S Blassie. With a 40-year career in the Air Force, Col Blassie is the Deputy Director, Directorate of Manpower, Personnel, and Services Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command, Robins Air Force Base, Georgia.
George Rhodes is battling multiple myeloma and your words and prayers can make a difference. George's family set up a webpage for us to follow his progress and send him messages. Please click on this direct link or go to www.caringbridge.org and search for George Rhodes.
We need YOU! Are you interested in serving your fellow Rotarians by being a Greeter, leading the Pledge of Allegiance or the 4-Way Test? These are simple, important and fun tasks. The Greeters arrive at 11:30 a.m. and warmly welcome our Rotarians and guests for 30 minutes, a Rotarian officially speaks the Pledge of Allegiance with the group and the administrator of the 4-Way Test leads the assembly in stating the 4-Way Test. To help with these assignments please utilize the sign-up genius https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080845AFA92DAAFC1-4way
If you have any questions, please see Allison Judy or Dave Hallman. Thank you!
Now is your chance to get a new one at no cost to you. David Bourne and Michael Gould have offered their services to take new headshots for our members before and after our weekly meetings from May 16 through June 6.
Dress for success and plan to come a few minutes early or stay for a few minutes after our meeting to have them take your new headshot. These will get added to our club website and make their way into the 2019-20 club directory.
As the new Rotary year approaches, it is time to update our club directory before the next edition goes to print. Please make sure your personal information is up to date. You can update this yourself on our club website or stop by and see Darlene at one of our next meetings.
The directory is a great opportunity to advertise your business to our club membership. If you have run an ad in previous years, expect a call from Mickey Deaton asking you to run an ad again this year.
Get higher visibility by having your ad on the inside or back cover. Pricing for these limited and high traffic ad placements is simple, it is double the normal price listed above.
Thank you for advertising in the directory and doing business with fellow Rotarians!
