Over the past week, all seven Cobb County Rotary Clubs swore in new Club Presidents and President Elects for 12-month terms. Included were Ken Crowell and Sam Pierce of East Cobb Rotary, Matt Riedemann and Jude Dooley of North Cobb Rotary, James Eubanks and Reuben Green of Marietta Rotary, Charles Lassiter and Tim Bailey of Marietta Metro Rotary, David Pope and Neill Ferrill of Vinings Rotary, South Cobb Rotary’s Michael Martin and Smyrna Rotary’s Narayan Sengupta. 

The clubs are highly active in projects ranging from local to international in the following categories: Peace and Conflict Resolution, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Water and Sanitation, Maternal and Child Health, Basic Education and Literacy, and Economic and Community Development. Some of their many current projects include a $28,500+ grant to Cobb’s Center for Children & Young Adults (a non-profit shelter for neglected or abused children), $3,500 to Teasley Elementary for robotics and science equipment and a Cobb County Jail book drive. These clubs, totaling 350 of Cobb’s Business and Community Leaders, also recently worked with 64 other Rotary Clubs to send a 40’ container full of medicine and around $12,000 of ShelterBox kits to Nepal’s earthquake victims.
