The Sweetwater District Roundtable. Did you know that we meet the 2nd Tuesday of every month (except for June and July) at Snellville United Methodist Church beginning at 7 PM for approximately 1 hour. This is a great opportunity to pick up additional training, share with other leaders in the district, learn about any changes in program, advancement, service opportunities, pick up new flyers, and other great ideas, etc. Who knew that one hour a month could be so valuable a resource to you? Are you taking advantage of this resource? Have you told others in your Unit about this opportunity? If not, let's not waste any more time. Put August 11th on your calendar and start the school year off to a great start. Can't wait to see you there!
