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
Last week members of Metro gathered with friends of Loop It Up at LIU headquarters for a casual cook out and check presentation. Although the check was fake the sentiment was real. Metro gave Loop It Up a total of $12,000 over the course of the past year plus many hours of hands on services. Aren't you proud to be a Metrotarian? 
Metro has two newbies in the new member program. Please take a minute to say hello and make them feel welcome.
