The Smyrna Rotary Club has a proud tradition of SERVICE ABOVE SELF. Rotarians plan and carry out a remarkable variety of humanitarian and educational service projects that touch peoples' lives in their local communities and our world community. Our club is involved in international service projects in Kenya, the Dominican Republic, and local projects in Smyrna. It has been a busy year! As we continue to grow, we take on more projects. In the past 18 months, our number of projects has doubled.
Our club was chartered in December 1963, and we still have two of our charter members - Sam Whitfield and JD Daniels, as well as Jimmy Freeman who joined two weeks after the club was chartered. Our current club includes 50 members of different ages and different professions.
We enjoy working in four venues of service: club, community, vocational, and international, and have taken on more projects as our club has grown in size. We have one of the greatest speaker line-ups in the metro Atlanta area, and we are delighted and honored to have every one of them!
We meet every Tuesday at the Smyrna Community Center at 12:15. If you are a business or civic leader in the community and want to get involved, please visit us or contact Narayan Sengupta 770-850-1640 or email us email@example.com.
