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!

On October 3, 2016, 2X World Open Speed Chess Winner Orrin Hudson, founder of Be Someone, Inc., spoke to the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs. One of the best programs yet and lots of fun. Orrin Hudson and Be Someone uses the game of chess to help kids at risk make good decisions. He wants to reach millions of kids. One member of the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs dared to play a game of timed chess with Orrin, which went about as well as expected.

2017 DISTRICT 6900 CONFERENCE CRUISE
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 will focus on economic and community development issues.
