Bell will ring at 7:25 this week – be ready to join the breakfast line!

Great to be back!  I missed you all last Friday, but understand from PE Robin that all went well – even with the technology! Thank you, Robin!

Our speaker this week will be Raymond Berger. Raymond Berger is a certified hypnotherapist.  He uses hypnosis to treat a variety of clinical and medical conditions including: weight loss, smoking cessation, stress, anxiety, fears, phobias, ADHD and PTSD.  He is also focused on helping some of his clients increase their sales, sports and academic performance by leveraging the power of the subconscious mind. As a reformed corporate warrior, Raymond had been practicing hypnosis on a part time basis.  At the beginning of 2017, he decided to take the plunge and make it his full time endeavor.  He has multiple undergraduate and graduate degrees and speaks fluent Chinese (Mandarin).    Ray is a member of the Lanier-Forsyth Rotary and has a practice in near downtown Cumming.

Two very special guests will be paying our Club a visit this Friday: Past District Governor, Raymond Ray and Past District Governor Bob Hagan. They will be on-hand to present a very special award for our Foundation contributions last year.  Please be present to honor our PDG’s and our Club’s accomplishments! (This is a BIG deal…..J )

Alex Paulk is scheduled to give us our Vocational Minute.

Holiday Meeting Schedule

As a reminder, we will not have breakfast together on December 22nd or December 29th. Of course that makes it all the more important to make the other meetings, attend the Holiday Party on December 15th with your spouse or guest, and participate in service opportunities.

 

If you have not yet pledged to make a difference with a gift to the RI Foundation this year, I would encourage you to have those discussions at home and consider your next-level Paul Harris or Major Donor status. Our PDG guests, Raymond Ray and Bob Hagan, can attest to the benefits of foundation giving, and I hope the award presentation inspires us all to recommit resources, as we are able, and “Do Good In the World” as only Rotary can.

 

Join Mayor David Belle Isle and a lively crowd of runners and walkers on August 24 at City Hall for the annual Mayor’s Challenge 5K Race.

 
 
It’s basically a huge block party.  A night of food, music and friendly competition.  Held in concert with Alpharetta’s renowned Food Truck Alley! The Alpharetta Mayor's Corporate Challenge 5K Race attracts thousands of residents, corporate employees and runners.  This year's venue is City Park behind Alpharetta City Hall.  The new location is attracting interest from large corporate sponsors who desire a private company picnic experience while enjoying Alpharetta's most exciting night of the year.  
 
 

Rotary Club of Alpharetta donated $7,500 to HomeStretch in support of the great work they do in the North Fulton Community.  They also completed 3 projects for HomeStretch in order to get an apartment ready for a new family to move in.  On Tuesday, September 20 and on Thursday, September 22 from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, fellow Rotarians painted the interior of the apartment. And on Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Rotarians cleaned the inside and outside of the apartment.  

Rotarian Karen Nolan said, “Alpharetta Rotarians are happy to volunteer their time and resources to give families in our community a hand up through HomeStretch.  HomeStretch families are proud hardworking members of our community and Homestretch offers them the support they need to ensure they have the opportunity for a bright successful future.”
 
HomeStretch is an organization that addresses some of the root causes of homelessness in our community.  It is one of the few programs in the country that not only provides housing but works with the families to help stop the cycle of homelessness.  The Rotary Club of Alpharetta annually sponsors an apartment and a family at HomeStretch.  In addition, Alpharetta Rotarians serve as Financial and Life Mentors for the family.   
 
President of Alpharetta Rotary, Jason Binder stated, “Our club is very proud to support HomeStretch not only with money but with fellow Rotarians participating together to make sure an apartment is clean and freshly painted and ready for a new family to move in soon. HomeStretch provides valuable services and support to members of the community and on behalf of Alpharetta Rotarians, I look forward to our continued work with Homestretch in the coming years.”
