From the President
We like to say over here at Metro Savannah that we're not your grandfather's Rotary Club, but that's not a knock on your grandfather or any other club. We're proud to  be members of Rotary International, believe strongly in its mission and traditions, and partner frequently with other clubs in the area. We're just a bit different.
Most Metro Rotarians -- though certainly not all of us -- are under the age of 50. We have the standard lunch meetings, but we also participate in monthly volunteer service projects and socials, throw club events that have become legendary, and host speakers who can shed light on our world and challenge our way of thinking.
Interested in joining us? We love to host visiting Rotarians and their guests! Rotarians, please check out our calendar to see when you can join us. Non-Rotarians must be invited by a friend or colleague who is already a member of Metro Savannah Rotary.
Thanks for checking out Metro.

Our Stories
It's time to start working on selecting our Annual Service Partner for 2018-19. 
Each member is encouraged to distribute the application to viable community organizations. Please note the organization must be an IRS designated “public charity” (501(c)(3) organization) and must return the applications by Friday March 30, 2018.
In addition, we will also form our annual Service Partner Selection Committee. If you would like to be a member of the Service Partner Selection Committee, please notify Daniel Weiner at . The committee will only meet during the review process and members will receive service credit for participating.

  • Wednesday May 9, 2018the Selection Committee will meet to determine 3 applicant finalists. A review of the 3 applicant finalists will be presented at the following Program Meeting on Tuesday May 15, 2018.

Jamie Arkins, Clinton Edminster, Whitney Shephard build goodwill and better friendships behind the bar. 
UPDATE: We raised approximately $4,000 for Loop It Up! Thanks to all who brought chili. And congrats to Liza Smith for most money raised and to Daniel Weiner for the People's Choice Award. 
The beer was cold, the oysters were salty and the setting was amazing. Thanks to all who helped make this year's Roastary a rousing success! 
Committee members: Ariana Berkstiner (chair extraordinaire), Kelley Boyd (chili), Whitney Shephard and Jamie Arkins (booze), Justin Hummell (music) and Florence Slatinsky (oysters), Katie Joyner (set up, details everyone else forgot). And of course huge shout out to Marc and Kate Bailey for hosting and to Molly Lieberman who rallied her tribe and is a fantastic party planner. It was the kind of Metro mingle we're know for - one that brings people together who might not normally meet and helps strengthen our community while consuming LOTS OF BEER. 
Walter Strong from Savannah Rotary visited Metro to encourage members to participate in the inaugural Rotary Read-In on Thursday, March 22, from 9 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. Rotarians and community volunteers will participate with students from kindergarten to third grade in 31 schools and almost 600 classrooms in the Savannah-Chatham County area. To register to read on March 22, sign up here by Thursday, March 15:
This is a great way to earn a service credit if you haven't participated in one yet this year. Remember, hands-on service is a club requirement.
