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!!

 

Join Mayor David Belle Isle and a lively crowd of runners and walkers on August 24 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.”
