In 2021, The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs celebrated our 50th anniversary of providing volunteer services and financial support to charities in and around Sandy Springs. Our core seven areas of focus are: Basic Education and Literacy, Economic and Community Development, Water and Sanitation, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Maternal and Child Health and Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution. If you have a heart’s desire to serve in one of these areas, Rotary is the best civic organization to utilize your time, talent and treasures. I welcome you to visit our club for a free lunch on us and to experience the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs' hospitality and energy. We meet on Monday for lunch at 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Hilton Perimeter Suites, 6120 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Sandy Springs, GA 30328. You can just show up at our lunch meeting or call me at 404.272.0294 for more information about our lunch meeting or Rotary in general. Come and network with your fellow professionals, and community and business leaders, and learn how Rotary can fit in your future. Enjoy Rotary and Serve to Change Lives!
Monday, December 19th Past District Governor Bob Hagan stepped in and spoke to the Club as a "Pinch Hitter" due to a last minute cancellation from our originally scheduled speaker.
PDG Bob Hagan gave an overview of his role as chairman on the Polio Plus Major Gifts Committee. The main focus of the committee is to find donors willing to give more than $10,000 to help alleviate polio.

Thank you for your continued dedication to the eradication of Polio and for filling the role of our speaker for the week, Bob!
