December 7, 2023 - Thanks for visiting the Rotary Club of Peachtree City, Ed Weber!  Ed is a member of the London Bridge - Lake Havusu City, Arizona Rotary Club.  Ed's club was chartered just a few years after ours in 1970.  Ed brought coins from his club to honor some of our active/retired veterans and our first responders.  He also presented President Amy with one of the 50th commemorative coins from the club.  
 
London Bridge's coin program was originated to honor the relocation and reconstruction of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City and provide a fund-raising vehicle for the many charitable and community projects of the London Bridge Rotary Club. The club released the first coin, the "Havasu Dollar,” in October 1971.  A new London Bridge Rotary Commemorative coin was released every October since then and coincided with their annual anniversary celebration dedicating the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The coin program ended with the release of the 50th edition coin in 2021.  This very successful coin project allowed the London Bridge Rotary Club to contribute close to $2 million dollars to many community charities and projects as well support Rotary International projects throughout the world.
 
Thank you for recognizing our club and members with one of these very special coins from your club!  What an honor!  Hope to see you again in the future when you are visiting your family in PTC!

December 1, 2023 - What a great way to start out December!   Our club partnered with Fayette Senior Services to purchase gifts for some of our fantastic shut-in seniors here in Peachtree City.  Gifts ranged from simple items like bags of Almond Joy and Socks to book club memberships.  Our members were excited to take these wish lists and do a little bit of shopping to bring some joy into the lives of these recipients!  We all take for granted how blessed we are with close friends and family and this gave us an opportunity to share those blessings with others in our local community that are not as fortunate!  Hope this brings a smile to their faces and a little bit of Christmas joy when they open their gifts!
November 30, 2023 - Congratulations and Thank You, Paige Munk!  Paige continues to give back to those around her each and every day.  We are so thankful that she did as Foundation Chair Will says - "Put your money where your HEART is..."  And she did it in a big way - by not only becoming a Paul Harris Fellow for the first time, but stepping up to PHF+1 at the same time!  Thank you for your giving heart, Paige Munk!  This will allow us to continue #DoingGoodintheWorld!
November 30, 2023 - Congratulations, George Martin!  Well Deserved!  George’s history with Rotary goes long before he joined the Rotary Club of PTC with his initial membership starting in May 1984.  As a member of PTC, he took office for the first time in 2004.  That same year he was recognized as a Will Watt Fellow.
 
Over the next few years, George served as Secretary, Vice President, President-elect and President.  In 2007, George received Rotarian of the Year for the first time and then again in 2021.  George was the recipient of the Kurt Steiner humanitarian award from the Road Runners of America at their national convention for the work he did in partnership with the PTC running club to start our Grand Prix series.  George has since served as the chair of this project each year since then helping raise over $1.8M.
 
On top of his leadership in our club, he also held positions at the district level for the Rotary Foundation.  Many members with the number of years in Rotary like George take a step back from the daily active service, but with his generous Rotarian Heart, George continues to serve our club and community!
November 16, 2023 - Thanks to new Major Donors Steven Newton and Cyndi Plunkett!  Your generosity to our Foundation is what allows us to continue #DoingGoodintheWorld!  What an honor to know that both of these members had fathers as Rotarians that passed this love of service down to them!
November 16, 2023 - Welcome to PTC Rotary, Brett!  You have already jumped right in with several service projects and social events with us and we are looking forward to expanding that in the future with you and your wife, Brooke!  Thanks for recognizing that Rotary was a fit for you.  Brett is the CEO of Electrical Contacts International, Inc. and has a degree in Plastics Technology, an MBA and is also a Black Belt Six Sigma.  He is a graduate of Cape Technikon in South Africa and Georgia Tech!  We are excited to get to know you better and happy to have you as a new member!

November 16, 2023 - Welcome BACK to PTC Rotary, Frank!  We are so happy to have you and your wife, Becky, become an official part of our Rotary 'family' again in PTC!  After taking a break for a few years during the pandemic, you have had your rest and we expect you to jump right back in as active as you were before!  Thanks for staying in touch with all of us and making the leap to make it 'official' again!

November 2, 2023 - What an evening of good bourbon, good wine, good beer, good food, good music and GREAT friends!  And an even better night of fundraising for the Rotary Foundation!  It's always fun to dress up for a great cause!
 
 
We are so proud of this project! Thanks to our president Amy Timmons Benton for coming up with this idea and working so hard to pull these clubs together with Midwest Food Bank Georgia to coordinate everything! We were even more excited when we were able to see the boxes being distributed to local partners like the The I-58 Mission right here in our community!
Thank you to Rotary District 6900 and Rotary International for supporting these types of projects to allow us to be #PeopleOfAction while providing #ServiceAboveSelf to continue #DoingGoodInTheWorld!
 
 
November 9, 2023 - THANK YOU doesn't begin to say enough for this amazing family and how they have given back to Rotary.  Mike Lardie (Community Service Director), his wife Cheryl and son Barry (RCC Member) were recognized for becoming Major Donor Level II.  This represents personal donations of over $25,000 to the Rotary Foundation.  This is such an example for our members and other Rotarians across the world that a family will give of their time and their money to help our great organization continue with #DoingGoodintheWorld!  Thank you for your commitment to Rotary, Lardie Family!  We appreciate you!
November 9, 2023 - Congratulations to Fernando Duenas for being selected to be one of the prestigious "President's Circle" recipients this year from President Amy.  Fernando just became an 'official' Rotarian back in February, but once you spend any time with him and hear about his life, you know he has always been a Rotarian at heart!  Fernando jumped right in after joining and was awarded the Rookie of the Year for his service to the club.  He has already become a Major Donor to the Rotary Foundation and was asked to lead our Coffee Chats for this Rotary year.  Fernando has attended 99.99% of ALL Rotary events - and has quickly become a 'regular' at many of our recurring service projects.  He happily stepped up when asked and will be our Community Service Director for next year.  Although he claims to be lucky to be a Rotarian and part of our club, the 'luck' is all ours.  We were 'lucky' to have his granddaughter Avery join our Rotary Community Corps and introduce her grandfather to all that Rotary has to offer!  Thank you for everything you do, Fernando!
