Stay tuned for upcoming service projects, fellowship events that will brighten the dark and cold of winter, and our District Conference in San Destin (April 26th-29th).


As is customary for Alpharetta Rotary, what an amazing first-half of our year! We accomplished some large projects, and some that might appear to be small – but had LARGE impact.  Let’s keep our momentum moving forward right through the winter and into spring!

I look forward to seeing you on Friday!
