At a Glance

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

We are in for a very special treat this Friday! Our program will involve a non-profit panel consisting of Barbara Dufffy of North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC), Kathy Swahn of The Drake House and Rose Burton of HomeStretch. Each will give us an update on their organization and then the three will educate us on the Continuum of Care, and plans for the future. You will not want to miss this presentation by these outstanding non-profit executives in whose organizations we are so heavily invested. November is Foundation Month. Mark Orr will give us good reason to give to the RI Foundation, so consider investing in your next-level Paul Harris (maybe Major Donor?) status.  Do Good in the World!

Holiday Meeting Schedule

Is it REALLY that time of year? As a reminder, we will not have breakfast together on November 24th, December 22nd or December 29th. Of course that makes it all the more important to make the other meetings, service opportunities and our holiday party.

 

President Nominee Process

As mentioned at our last meeting, please be sure to get your nomination for Rotary President of the 2020-2021 year to Kirk Driskell as soon as possible.

 

I look forward to seeing you Friday!

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.”
