A Message from the Club President

I am very honored to be your Rotary Club of Highlands President for 2022-2023. It is exciting to have the opportunity to lead this club in its seventy-seventh year as we resume meetings, seek new areas to serve, and continue our traditions of community outreach and support.


As I talk with members and the Rotary Board, I sense a huge enthusiasm and renewal of our commitment to “Service above Self.” Our Club offers opportunities for individual service, as well as group participation in community projects such as Scholarships, Interact Club at Highlands School, Christmas Parade, Shop with A Cop, and Veterans Ceremony. Fundraising activities that support the community include a 5K Race, an annual golf tournament, and the July 4th Duck Derby.


Our club’s impact in the community helps create change for the benefit of many. For example, participation in the Highlands Cashiers Plateau Covid-19 Vaccine initiative, and scholarships for high school seniors. Sustaining our membership is critical to our success both locally and throughout the district. As we have returned to our schedule of weekly meetings, I encourage all members to come and enjoy the fellowship at lunch and participate in Rotary events to serve our mountain community.


Yours in Rotary,


Chris Wilkes
President 2022-2023
