Rotary New Year 2020

I spent the last year writing articles explaining the Rotary philosophy and what Rotary emphasizes each month of the year. I have shared volunteer activities, with numerous pictures of Rotarians engaged in making a difference in the community. I have asked for volunteers and asked for people who are like-minded to step up and join our efforts to “do good in the world”.

Snellville – Snow is in the forecast for Saturday night, November 29, 2014. 

No, not real snow. Just some synthetic white stuff that will fill the air and sprinkle the ground at the first Lighted Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting.

Home Sweet Home – The Salvation Army working in Gwinnett

Courage in the face of hunger, fear of sleeping in your car and the very thought of possibly placing your children in an insecure situation is not something most people think about on a daily basis, but for too many, it is a reality. Homelessness is not defined by any one word. It is complex and can take place for any socioeconomic status in the blink of a pink slip. With a society living paycheck to paycheck, regardless of income, homelessness is a state that can occur within a very short amount of time. Courage in the face of fear is a start. Finding help is the next step. The Salvation Army’s Home Sweet Home program is a compassionate place to start.

“My dad was not only a great provider growing up,” says Daryl Keith Johnson, “He gave me lots of inspiration, knowledge, and support. I was really grateful for that.”

Amazing and Blessed

An interview with Aimee Copeland. One year ago, a father put a request for prayers for his daughter on Facebook. That simple request, made during a time of unimaginable stress, took off and brought prayers, blessings and concerns from all around the globe in a matter of hours.
