Rotary Club of Buford/North Gwinnett looking for new members

SUWANEE — Like so many fraternities and sororities across the country, the Rotary Club of Buford/North Gwinnett will be holding its own version of rush next week, inviting community members to join the service organization.

At 6 p.m. Wednesday, the organization will be at Bear’s Best-Atlanta at 5342 Aldeburgh Drive in Suwanee for a wine and cheese reception, and is urging area residents and business people to come and learn more about the group.

“Rotary is the world’s premier service organization,” membership chair Valeria Dirksen said. “And Buford/North Gwinnett club members are really a hands-on group. I’m so proud of the many ways that we reach out to make a difference in our community.”

Each year, the Buford/North Gwinnett Rotary Club is active in a number of community service projects and activities, including their “Pound out Polio” 5K, the Gwinnett County Public Library’s Littlest Reader Program, Gwinnett Great Days of Service and the Salvation Army.

The club meets each Wednesday at noon at the Homplate Club at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville.

If possible, attendees are asked to RSVP by e-mail to Valerie Dirksen at sneskrid@charter.net.
