Rotary International is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs meets most Mondays at the Hilton Atlanta Perimeter Suites at 12:15 PM. The lunch program includes club business and also hosts guest speakers - business professionals, elected officials, non-profit leaders and others from the Sandy Springs area.
We’re always looking for ways to make an impact in the community; our club members are actively engaged with senior and youth programs that support leadership development and student scholarship. While our motto and most important feature of Rotary International is “Service Above Self,” we also work together in fellowship as we enjoy great camaraderie. Like us on Facebook Sandy Springs' Facebook Page to keep up to date on our club's activities!
I hope you will enjoy our weekly newsletter and I invite you to join us for lunch soon!

Rotarians, family, friends attend the dinners which are catered by community-service oriented restaurants and caterers.

Plan to attend with your families! The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs will have a booth at the 2016 Movies By Moonlight where Rotary International's achievements with the Polio Plus campaign will be emphasized, as well as the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs' Medical Recycling Trailer project. Gene Jordan, with the help of Rick Doyle, will coordinate the booth and seek volunteers to man the booth for each of the three showings.
Each year, Leadership Sandy Springs celebrates our community and presents Movies By Moonlight three evenings of early dusk, outdoor movies that are free to the public. Families enjoy pre-movie activities, food truck fare, and set up picnic blankets on the grounds of Sandy Springs United Methodist Church at Mt. Vernon and Sandy Springs Circle. Here are the shows for this coming 2016 Movies By Moonlight. Free to the public....these movies are in top demand!
A cruise is a little different from a regular conference. It is impossible to wait until the last minute to register or reserve a cabin. We are asking that you make your plans to join us and register for the conference and book your cabin before October 1, 2016.
Passports are not required but are highly recommended. If you do not have a passport, you will need a CERTIFIED COPY of your birth certificate and another government issued ID, such as a drivers license. Get all the details at https://rotary6900.org/event/709
Rotary Clubs around the world focus on education and literacy.
