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

I’m so grateful last Friday that we were able to hear from the Laws of Life essays as presented by Michael Cardozo and Jake Snow.  I would like to give special thanks to Mary Ulich and Deborah Swafford for facilitating this, and the attendance of AHS teachers and the families.  What an impactful presentation!

 

This Week…

Our program this week will be focused on our youth as we hear from our Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students, Livia and Sophia, and meet our Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) students this summer. For those of you who are unsure, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where students develop skills as a leader while making connections from across the district or state.

 

Joe Wargo will also give us an update on our Mayor’s Corporate Challenge progress and ways in which you can help drive sponsorships and participation.  

 

We will learn more about Brian Mould as he delivers our Vocational Minute!

The Spotlight this week is on Lyman Louis

The spotlight this week is on Lyman Louis. Lyman has not only pioneered our first year of offering the Rotary Youth Exchange program for our Club, but across District 6900. His efforts have enabled our outbound student, Kate Rojales, to have a transformational experience, living in Puebla, Mexico this year. A lot of work goes into this program behind the scenes, and he has recruited Mark Meckes, Mary Ulich and others to assist. He is such an ardent advocate for youth, both inside and outside of Rotary. When you see Lyman, please take a moment to thank him for all his hard work, behind the scenes, in service to Alpharetta Rotary.  We appreciate you, Lyman!

 

Enjoy your week!  See you all Friday!!

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.”
