President's Welcome Message

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Griffin. I am appreciative and honored to have been selected as the 95th president of our club. As such, I recognize our duty to the history and traditions of the club, and I do not intend to do anything that would damage or in any way reduce the significance of what has gone before. At the same time, however, I also recognize that we cannot be stagnant by failing to use current technology to extend our reach and our impact in the community. To that end, and with thanks to the team at First Baptist Church of Griffin for their permission to use some of their equipment, the Rotary Club of Griffin will begin immediately to live stream our weekly meetings on the Internet. Our club will use the latest technology, but we will continue to impact our community and the world as we always have done. I hope to sponsor several projects this year that will be both local in impact and international.And don’t forget, “We are THIS close” to ending polio worldwide. We will do everything we can to press toward that goal. I invite you to come see what is happening at the Griffin Rotary Club. We are always on the lookout for people of influence who are interested in making an impact—in being the source of inspiration for others. Come join us—it’ll be fun and impactful.

Dr. Randy Peters
95th President

A Sense of Belonging

Growing up in Griffin, I knew Rotary mainly through the programs and events they sponsored, as well as Interact. I knew that they did great things in the community, but not much about the group itself. It took joining the Club to understand how the motto of Service above Self plays out in practice in the day-to-day actions of my fellow Rotarians … [more]
