Club News

Bell will ring at 7:27 this week – be ready to join the breakfast line!

I think it’s no coincidence that Valentine’s Day is also associated with “Rotary Has Heart” month! With plans for a Blood Drive on March 9th, we may be a little late to the party, but I don’t think there is ever a bad time to give a pint of blood for someone in need. Mickey Rogers will give us some more detail soon, but plan to stay after our meeting on 9 March to participate!

 

Our speaker this week will be Alpharetta Mayor, David belle Isle. Earlier in the week, the Mayor delivered his final “State of the City” address and a reflection of his term of office. David will deliver a similar message to our Rotary Club Friday morning.  I hope you will make a special effort to attend our meeting as we say “fare-well” to a fellow Rotarian who has served our City for many years as both our Mayor and as a Councilman.

 

We will also recognize four of our members transitioning from Red to Blue badges: David Cochran, Meredith Moore, Olga Narvaez and Richard Owen.

 

We will learn more about Alex Paulk, as he will give us our Vocational Minute this week.

 

Special congratulations to our newest Rotarians, inducted last week: Sergio De La Torre, Jill Bernard, and Fran Schefer.  If you have not already, please seek them out and get to know them. They will need our support as they run through the Red Badge program and seek to find their points of impact within Alpharetta Rotary and beyond.

 

Once again, I am going to keep this detailed information in the body of this update for your reference.  PLEASE take action and register for one of the Rotary Leadership Institutes, put the District Assembly on your calendar, AND be sure to register for the District Conference!

Join the Mayor of Alpharetta and a lively crowd of runners and walkers on August 23 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.”
