World Polio Day 2020

Yamin Farhat is the co-chair for District 6900 End Polio Now.  With World Polio Day on Saturday, October 24, we will hear updates on what / how Rotary continues to fight for eradication of this debilitating disease around the world.

What an awesome night! Our Rotary Community Corps, made up of special needs adults, were able to present a service dog to a local child through the funds raised in their annual wreath sale. The recipient is a 4 year old boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Speech Regression, Elopement behavior, night terros, anti-social behaviors and Global developmental delay. His mother noted that she is already seeing a difference in her son with his new best friend, “Bolt”! We were also able to support Project Shoebox (United Way) by combining all of our clubs, along with a corporate sponsorship and created 100 boxes for 2 local organizations – Real Life Center and Promise Place. We had Rotary Community Corps members, PTC Rotaract members, New Interact members from The Foundry along with Rotarians and employees of Cooper Lighting Solutions to decorate the boxes and fill them with personal hygiene products – toothpaste, floss, combs, socks, shower supplies and deodorant – to provide to women and children in need due to homelessness or domestic violence.
 
 
Rotary Club of PTC and Cooper Lighting Solutions joined together to raise awareness for Alzheimer's.  We had over 50 walkers - ranging from 9 month's old to 90 year's old!  There were Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors and "Future Rotarians" along with employees of Cooper Lighting Solutions.  We were able to donate / raise over $7500 for this worthy cause through our fundraisers and sponsorship of the event.  The Rotary Club of Peachtree City has played a part of the Walk to End ALZ - Southern Crescent for over 20 years now!  #LEADTHEWAY #FIRSTSURVIVOR #WALK2ENDALZPTC #WALKTOENDALZ #SERVICEABOVESELF #PEOPLEOFACTION
 
A true Rotarian who put others first!  He was known for his servant's heart.  We are all better people (and Rotarians) for having the opportunity to share the earth with him!  He will be missed; and will be remembered for his contribution in service and the many lives he touched.
 
The PTC Rotary and Rotaract clubs partnered on Saturday, September 12, to pick muscadines at the Real Life Center Orchard.  These will be given to families with hunger insecurity in Fayette and Coweta County.  Pictured (Top L-R):  Rotarians Mandy Timmons, Tim Milis, Jessica Walker, Azell Francis, Patti Kadkhodaian, and Tundi Jones; (Middle L-R):  Rotaractors Brooke Turner, Azell Francis, Faith DeBartola; (Bottom L-R):  Rotarian Patti Kadkhodaian, Friend of Rotary Joy Koehl, Rotarians Fergus Esezobar, John Belizaire and Mandy Timmons
Local non-profit, the Armed Forces Mission, works to “turn the tide on suicide” by providing training for individuals in the area of suicide prevention. In the wake of COVID-19, we have already seen an increase in our nation’s successful and attempted suicides, thus highlighting the need for innovative and successful training platforms. In effort to do jus that, the PTC Rotary club obtained a $5,000 District Grant that will be used to develop an online suicide prevention training program for the Armed Forces Mission. Our club was honored to attend filming for this new program.

What an awesome day of service at Midwest Food Bank!  We packed over 800 bags of canned goods that will be distributed to over 300 agencies across GA, FL, AL, TN and KY.  We are blessed to have this organization in PTC and our fellow Rotarian Will Garner as its Executive Director!  Thanks to the Rotarians who were able to join us as well as our guests (and potential future Rotarians)!  #serviceaboveself #peopleofaction #midwestfoodbank #fighthunger 
 
Rotary on Tap is a great social event to hang out with fellow Rotarians and bring prospective members to meet everyone in a relaxed, social environment!  We had our first Rotary on Tap of the 2020-2021 year on Tuesday, August 18 at Line Creek Brewing followed up by a quick meal (and more drinks) at Big Shots (owned by PTC Rotarian Ant Murphy).  Pictured (L-R):  Fran Davanzo (husband of Rotarian Holly); Rotarian Ant Murphy, Rotarian Jessica Walker, Rotarian (and Membership Director) Holly Davanzo, Rotarian Steven Newton, Rotarian (and New Generations Director) Donna Chapman and Rotarian Sam Chapman.
