No Meeting This Friday: Enjoy Your Memorial Day Weekend

There will not be a meeting this Friday because of the holiday weekend. We look forward to seeing you at Fleming's next Friday when our Rotary Youth Exchange student Mink will talk about what this RYE year means to her. Check out the rest of this week's bulletin for opportunities to serve (June 13 at Camp Corral) and opportunities for fellowship and fun (our year-end celebration and installation of officers on June 27 and the Gwinnett Stripers Family of Rotary night out on July 20).

If you're looking to commemorate our lost soldiers and honor our veterans this Memorial Day weekend, think about attending Roswell Remembers on Monday - co-sponsored by the Rotary Club of Roswell and the City of Roswell. This largest Memorial Day Ceremony in Georgia started in 1997, when 12 patriotic individuals came together to create a truly unique Memorial Day event - a non-political, non-commercial ceremony honoring veterans and the sacrifices they made in protecting our freedom. My husband, Scott Cuthbert, was part of the committee. That first ceremony attracted about 1,800 individuals. From that humble beginning, the event now attracts 6,000-7,000 people.

The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. on the grounds of Roswell City Hall, 38 Hill Street, Roswell, GA. Displays are open at 10 and pre-ceremony music begins at 10:15. There is a BBQ lunch and concert available after the ceremony at a cost of $7 per person.
