Our speaker this Wednesday will be Evan Pearson, Director of Development at Hillside.
Founded in 1888, Hillside is one of Atlanta's oldest non-profit organizations, providing treatment services for children ages 7-21 with severe emotional, psychological, and behavioral challenges. Today we offer a continuum of services for children, youth, and their families including residential treatment, partial\day services, intensive outpatient services, DBT classes, etc. along with many programs and activities such as Animal Assisted Therapy, Theraplay, Art Therapy, Activity Therapy, Horticulture Activities, special events and outings, and much more. For more information on our programs and services, visit our website at: www.hside.org
The Brookhaven Rotary Holiday Party is a week from this Saturday, December 14 at the Cherokee Country Club (where we held the golf tournament). If you have not yet RSVP'd, please do so as soon as possible so that we can get an accurate count to the club.

Hope to see everyone at the party!
You will find some blank holiday cards and pens on your lunch table. Please take a few moments before and during the meeting to handwrite greetings in a few cards. They will be collected and forwarded to Georgia Cares.
Georgia Cares is an organization that provides services to children who are victims of human trafficking. The Rotary Club of Brookhaven supported Georgia Cares this year with a $2,000 District Grant that provided the organization with a high-speed, high-capacity printer for their outreach and communication needs.
As the holidays approach, Georgia Cares solicits gifts for their clients in particular residential situations. They have that covered but have asked us to write out some handwritten holiday cards for the children.
There is no need to sign your name or address the cards or envelopes. A simple message inside will lift the spirits of the child and let him or her know that someone in Atlanta wishes them well. Messages may be similar to the following:
“Sending love, joy and peace to you this holiday season from a friend in Atlanta.”
“All of us wish you a wonderful holiday season and peace and joy in the new year.”
