This week is your final opportunity to sign-up for the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) in Sandy Springs on 10/21.

WE are hosting GRSP Weekend North Fulton November 3-4. Open your home to a couple of these wonderful students who will be spending the weekend experiencing Atlanta and Alpharetta.  See John Norton for more details 770-851-6149


This past Sunday, while at the John’s Creek Rotary Southern Charms event, I was bragging on our Club (as I often do…) saying this is one organization that does not operate by the 80/20 Rule. In fact we do MUCH better. I don’t know that there are many other Clubs, or organizations of any kind, that can consistently make that statement the way we can. To do all we do, it takes many hands, many leaders, and leaders willing to follow. Thanks to all of you for stepping forward to do what you can.  It makes all the difference!


See you Friday…
