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!

The 2016 Public Service Dinners have been scheduled for October 25th, 26th and 27th. This annual event is put on by the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs and seeks to provide delicious dinners enough to cover all shifts of the Sandy Springs Fire, Police and EMS departments. The dinners took place at Fire Station #2 at 135 Johnson Ferry Road, Sandy Springs, Georgia 30328. Rotarians, family, friends, North Atlanta Rotaract members, and Riverwood and Mt. Vernon Presbyterian School Interact members attended the dinners which were catered by the community-service oriented restaurants and caterers listed below.
This year, an additional luncheon was held on Thursday October 20th so that police employees who typically can't make the dinners can enjoy a great meal. The event is coordinated by Julia Bernath, a member of the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs and the 2016 Club Vocational Service Director.
