Rotary 800 fundraising event, held at Experience Rock ‘n Roll in Northbrook Court was our biggest fundraiser of the year.
The weather was a bit of a challenge but those who attended enjoyed great music, delicious food, a Live and Silent Auction, and the drawing of the winning raffle tickets. With generous corporate and individual support, the event raised more than $69,000.
Our gratitude extends to all of the event sponsors: Lewis Floor and Home and Good Earth Lighting at the Gold level; Foley Cadillac, First Bank of Highland Bank,  JP Morgan, and Unique Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning at the Silver level. Bronze level; Allgauer’s, Mark Bernhard, as well as several anonymous donors.
The community stepped up in a big way with their generosity. The following restaurants provided our guests with a delicious array of food choices: Claim Co., DiPescara, Stir Crazy, Fine’s restaurant and catering, Mariano’s, Sunset Foods, Toffee Break desserts, the Bent Fork Bakery and Starbucks. Otto Brandt Winery served an assortment of fine wines. Everyone enjoyed the music of A to Z Entertainment. Howard Wallach had everyone up on the dance floor. Businesses and individuals gave certificates for attendees to bid on. There are too many to mention, but we thank them for this additional revenue source.
Thanks to all the Club members who sold raffle tickets, worked behind the scenes and stepped up to help make this a successful event. We certainly couldn’t have asked for a more fun evening.

Features

The Rotary Club Locator app helps you find a Rotary club meeting when you're on the go.

  • The "Near Me" search locates clubs within a physical radius of 100 miles. (Note: Actual driving distances may be further.)
  • A keyword search for clubs. This search looks for the keyword in either the club name or meeting location address. This is useful for finding clubs that are outside of the 100-mile radius from your current location.
  • A map showing a club's location and driving directions
  • The ability to save search results to a list of favorite clubs
  • The ability to add a club to your phone's contact list
  • The club's website and primary phone number, if available
  • A search function to find clubs by district

News from Rotary International
Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects

We’ve also led the fight to eradicate polio worldwide. As part of our celebration of the Foundation’s centennial, we’re honoring 20 global grant projects with special recognition. Learn more about the projects using our interactive map.
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
