Our Stories
Metro was thrilled to have David Probst of Stuttgart, Germany and Lily Bownes from Edinburgh come visit our club before heading home this week. They're GRSP students finishing up their year in Georgia. Lily was sponsored by the Buckhead Club and David by the Skidaway Island Club. David is very interested in Rotary and has attended as many rotary meeting as possible during his stay in the U.S., including Rotary One in Chicago. He traveled 9.000 miles across the US with four other students as well as to NYC, DC, Pittsburg and the Bahamas. Metro will be partnering with other local clubs to host a GRSP student in 2018-19. Florence is the coordinator for our club and will have more information soon. Please be thinking about experiences you would be willing to share with our exchange student. We want to show her as much of our area and culture as possible. 
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.

Metro at Work and Play

At the Metropolitan Savannah Rotary Club, we believe in giving back to our community, and having fun while doing it. Last year Club members volunteered more than 400 hours at 14 different service projects across Savannah, and raised nearly $10,000 to build and maintain a community garden for our 2014 service partner, Greenbriar Children's Home.
 
Monthly social outings have taken us everywhere from Savannah Sand Gnats baseball games to tricycle races at a local brewery.
 
At Metropolitan Savannah Rotary, we work hard and we play hard, and while we're at it try to better understand the community in which we live.
 
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,
