“Land was created to provide a place for boats to visit.” – Brooks Atkinson
 
This Week’s Program - Paul Beaudette
 
 
 
Phil Beaudette has been an active power boater since 2000 when he and his wife, Barbara bought their first boat in Chattanooga, TN. 
 
Growing up in Michigan, Phil graduated from Western Michigan University and worked as a commercial banker in the Detroit area before relocating to Chattanooga in 1987 to work for SunTrust Bank.  He also attended graduate banking school at the University of Delaware.   Two more relocations finally brought him to Atlanta in 2003.  But their boat remained in Chattanooga.  He and his wife knew their intention for boating the Great Loop was being set when they purchased their second boat in 2006. 
 
After leaving SunTrust in 2010, Phil was a senior executive for two community banks until retiring in October 2017.  Coincidentally, Barbara had begun her search for a new(er) boat that summer while vacationing in northern Michigan.  Once the boat was found the acquisition and retirement process was put into motion.  Within a busy six week period they sold their old boat, had their new boat delivered in Chattanooga, retired and attended the fall “Looper’s” conference in Rogersville, AL.  The name of their boat is “Meant To Be.”
 
After spending the next several months learning the boat, studying and preparing for the trip, the Beaudette’s began their Great Loop adventure from Chattanooga in March 2018.
 
Phil & Barbara live in Vinings and when not on the water and you may see them driving around town and attending classic car shows in their 1966 Cadillac convertible.

Rotary Club of Alpharetta
 

 

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.”
