Brookhaven Police Chief and Brookhaven Rotarian Gary Yandura will be our speaker this Wednesday. We'll see you at Noon at the Capital City Club!
Brookhaven Rotary Club members of more than a year or so will no doubt remember Edward "Smitty" Smith. Smitty was the first person ever to welcome me to the Capital City Club on the day I came to visit and learn about Rotary. I suspect that the same is true for many who are reading this. Many Wednesdays, Smitty's smile shook me out of my "business mindset" and reminded me that I was here to follow up on a project, yes, or that I had forgotten to bring a check with me, ok, but that I am also here for fellowship, to connect with my friends and to share a smile with the folks I encounter in my daily rounds.
It is with great sadness that I share the news that some of you no doubt already know, which is that Smitty passed away last month. His obituary is available here (link). Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
We're heading back to Jekyll Island!
The 2019-20 District Conference will be held at Jekyll Island on April 30 - May 3, 2020. This is a great opportunity to spend time with fellow Rotarians, enjoy fellowship with members from other clubs, enjoy the island with your family, and learn more about all the great work Rotary District 6900 is doing!
The District website registration page is live (link here), so take care of this today. We're sending a big group this year and will plan to host a hospitality room.
You can stay anywhere on Jekyll Island you like, of course, and many members of our Club will be at the Jekyll Island Club (link here).
