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.   
 
Cheers,
 
Leigh Acevedo

Our Stories
 
No singing or balloons, but Kristen Crawley did make a delicious Hummingbird Cake (from scratch!) in honor of Metro's sixth birthday, Whitney presented some FUN FACTS about Rotary in general:
 
  • 3 Districts in Georgia
  • 66 Clubs in D6920
  • 7 Clubs in the Savannah area
  • 1905 Rotary Founded
  • 1914 Savannah Rotary Club chartered
  • 1917 Rotary Foundation formed
  • 1989 Women were allowed to officially join Rotary
  • 2012 Metro Savannah Rotary Club chartered
Pictured: Anne Kuhlke-Lee read “Moody Cow” (about a cow who learns how to meditate) to students at Juliette Gordon Low Elementary. The kids even participated in meditation with her.
 
Savannah's first Rotary Read In was a huge success. SRRI was able to read to all 566 classes K-3 Classes in 31 schools throughout the entire Chatham County. 525 volunteers participated including several members from Metro and community groups from Thomas & Hutton, THA, Goodwill, Boy Scouts of America, NTG McDonalds and TMX Finance (to name a few). This is a great example of Rotary bringing together not just Rotarians, but other community members together to do good work.
