PRESIDENT'S CORNER
President Lisa Stueve's Welcome Message


Rotary International is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs meets most Mondays at the Hilton Atlanta Perimeter Suites at 12:15 PM. The lunch program includes club business and also hosts guest speakers - business professionals, elected officials, non-profit leaders and others from the Sandy Springs area.

We’re always looking for ways to make an impact in the community; our club members are actively engaged with senior and youth programs that support leadership development and student scholarship. While our motto and most important feature of Rotary International is “Service Above Self,” we also work together in fellowship as we enjoy great camaraderie. Like us on Facebook Sandy Springs' Facebook Page to keep up to date on our club's activities!

I hope you will enjoy our weekly newsletter and I invite you to join us for lunch soon!

Lisa Stueve, President, Rotary Club of Sandy Springs, 2016-17

August is Membership Month and "Bring A Friend Month"

August is Membership Month and it is also “Bring a Friend Month” in all Zones 33/34 Districts.

Zone Director Joe Mulkerrin, & DG R2, asks all D6900 Clubs to "Bring a Friend” to your meeting or special social event to inspire and introduce your friends to your Club's fellowship and allow potential members to see what your Club does and what it stands for. Be creative and fill your Club and District Facebook and social media pages with your events, breakfast, lunches and dinners.

HAVE SOME FUN & Bring a Friend! You never know, till you ask! DARE TO BE BETTER!
