Race Day - August 3, 2019


Honoring the heat and humidity of summer, we invite you to the 14th annual Dog Days 5K Run in Marietta on August 3, 2019. All in the family are welcome to run, jog or walk the race. Good music, great food and lots of prizes and giveaways! Over the years, the Rotary Club of East Cobb has donated more than $500,000 from race proceeds to local and international service projects.

Our beautiful, centrally located start/finish point (McCleskey-East Cobb YMCA) ensures a fast, smooth run through the East Cobb streets and our race shirts are ideal for either running races or running errands. We’ll have bounce houses for the kids and plenty of food and fluids for all entrants, plus lots of awards and a cool commemorative 14th Annual Dog Days shirt!

Starting Point - McCleskey-East Cobb YMCA (1055 E. Piedmont, Marietta, GA 30062)

Another HUGE virtual participation in our weekly meeting... Thank you @Joe Murphy for being our gracious host. A big thank you to Jennifer Rhett from REAP, our guest speaker this morning. And thank you to our club members for attending this a.m., some of you brand new to the ZOOM call experience. It was great to see some faces that many of us hadn't seen in weeks!

Last (but not least) if you don't have a Rotary Club to call home, message us if you'd like to attend a meeting!

A Rotary Meeting is a great way to kickoff your Wednesday!

Fellow ECR's and Extended Rotary Family:

A note from Lynn Hannah ...

Thank you everyone for responding so faithfully to our efforts to help others in need during the COVID19 crisis. My truck bed was 100 percent full, and I had to put the extra groceries on the inside of the truck. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

AGAIN, this Wednesday 4/8 - Friday 4/10 from 8:00a.m. to 6:30p.m, at 3650 Lower Roswell Road, Marietta, leave you non-perishable groceries in the bed of the truck parked in the driveway (so you don’t have to worry about personal contact). All canned items are welcomed, but especially canned fruit, green beans, spaghetti, canned milk, canned potatoes, canned meats, chunky soups, and canned pasta. Ramen noodles and snack bars are appreciated also.

A note from Greg Elder ...

WOW! From the bottom of our hearts just WOW! We are so incredibly blessed by your generosity. With 150 families a day coming to us for food and with plans to distribute 3000 boxes of food through Cobb schools next week we are so humbled and encouraged by you! Thank you for standing in the gap and helping your local neighbors in need during this critical time!
