Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival
Brookhaven Rotary Club assisted in the setup and takedown of the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival on March 23-25, 2018 at Blackburn Park, Brookhaven GA. On both March 23 and 25, 2018, club members served as Zone Captains assisting the festival organizer in controlling traffic and movement of vendors, artists, and musicians in the set up and takedown of booths. As needed, we assisted the vendors, musicians and artists in moving items and help securing their booths, etc. In addition, our club had a booth at the festival at which we provided to the public information regarding our club and its activities, including our major fundraiser, the Service Above Self golf tournament set for May 21, 2018, and the Covenant House Jobs Fair. This proved to be a great opportunity to inform the Brookhaven Community of who we are and what we do. About 12 - 15 people showed interest in the Club and we will invite them to attend a club meeting. Several asked for membership applications or more information about the club. This proved to be a great membership drive for our club.
