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

We are in for a REAL treat this Friday with a performance by the Georgia Piedmont Youth Orchestra, brought to us by Lyman Louis. They will provide music through our fellowship time and a bit beyond.  Please welcome them warmly and enjoy the festive holiday music these talented young musicians provide.


Our speaker this week will be Stanton Girod, President and Founder of AR Consultant Group. AR Consultant Group is an Atlanta-based technology firm that specializes in reducing the complexity and cost for advanced technology in mid-sized businesses.  


Be sure to stay after the meeting to help assemble the fruit baskets for seniors. Katie Rocco will lead us in this effort! We also need 3 to 5 Rotarians to serve as Judges for the Annual APC Holiday Door Decorating Contest. There are several prize categories at stake between church staff and the APC Day School classrooms.  Please contact Robin McIntire to participate.   – Should be a lot of fun!

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.


Paul Harris Recognition Day

We will be holding a Paul Harris Recognition Day at our meeting on January 12th. We would LOVE to have you standing up front to receive your award with the many others who have given this year for the first time, or over the years.  Also, consider becoming a Paul Harris Society member by pledging (as I have) at least $1,000 a year to the RI Foundation;, or become a Benefactor by contacting Fred Denkman to prepare a Codicil, bequeathing a specific amount of your estate to the RI Foundation.

Thanks to all those who participated in the Salvation Army Bell Ringing last Saturday, organized by Steve Gillard. It’s just another way in which Alpharetta Rotary shows it truly cares – and has fun along the way.  I can’t think of another group I would rather serve with – -

I will be out of town Friday morning, so PE Robin will have the pleasure of running the show.  I hope you all enjoy this last breakfast together of 2017!  See you Friday night!!
