January 27, 2022 - We love hearing classification talks from our members!  Today we heard from Past President Mary Chapman.  Mary moved to PTC when there were only 300 families here.  She was the 3rd woman to be allowed into our club and was one of our 4 female presidents that our club has had in our 50+ year history!  We are looking forward to our future female presidents in 2023-2024 (Amy B) and 2024-2025 (Patti K)!  Thanks for your presentation today, Mary!  Your story and passion for service is truly inspiring!

November 2021 - November is Foundation Month!

We are proud to have been doing a FOOTBALL FOUNDATION FUNDRAISER all season! With members being able to pledge $.50 or $1 for each point their team scored this season, we have already raised $9,377 with a few more weeks to go for our NFL team! While our Georgia Bulldogs are still leading the pack, we have big donations from other SEC teams as well as some Big 10, ACC, FBS Independent, American Athletic Conference and the NFL!

The Rotary Foundation has earned a 4-star rating on Charity Navigator for over 10 years now! This is just another way for us to know that our money is going to an awesome organization! With Rotary Foundation funds, our club has been able to receive multiple district and global grants to continuing Doing Good in the World!

November 12, 2021 - With the help of a Rotary District 6900 Grant, we hosted a REVERSE Job Fair with over 30 employers and 10 veteran (or veteran spouse) job seekers on Friday morning. A few job seekers have interviews scheduled for Monday. What makes this job fair unique is that the job seekers are the ones who have the booth. They shared memorabilia from their military experience, interests they have for their future careers, and employers were able to get to know the job candidates before discussing the potential positions.  We are thankful for the opportunity to mentor job seekers to prepare them for this event. The Eden Project, Peachtree City Christian Church, and Fayette Chamber of Commerce were also integral partners to make this event a success.
