ROTARY CLUB OF
Welcome Sandy Springs Rotarians to the new Rotary year. It will be hard to top last year but we'll do it with your help & support. Kudos to past president Nancy Schroeder and PDG Jim Squire for your service and helping the club receive many awards at the District Celebration including our second "Club of the Decade" designation.
Some changes are being made in our club's meeting program to make it more varied & interesting. We will be adding the Sandy Springs Business Spotlight, a third raffle drawing, and wine one meeting a month. Members are now asked to come a little earlier as lunch will begin at noon with the program to start promptly at 12:15. Along with our traditional club events & projects we'll have a couple more service projects/media events, membership events (Rotary Pizza Night at Pontoon) and different Family of Rotary social events. I look forward to engaging with you to make it a exciting year.
Visitors are welcome to experience the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs' hospitality and energy. Meetings are typically the 1st, 2nd & 4th Mondays. Lunch is served at noon and the 1 hour program begins at 12:15. Hilton Perimeter Suites, 6120 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Sandy Springs, GA 30328.

In light of the special needs of many in our community, Wednesday, July 15th the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs presented the Community Assistance Center (CAC) with a cash donation of over $1300. John Neill, the 2020-2021 president of the Rotary Club and four other Rotarians made the formal presentation at the CAC Mini-Market Food Pantry at 10:30am. Immediately after the presentation, those in attendance were given a tour of the facilities.
The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs is here to benefit the citizens of Sandy Springs and we see the Community Assistance Center as being a chief priority.
If you are interested in lending a helping-hand, please visit either of these two great Sandy Springs organizations.
