Carolyn Mitchell, president of the Roswell Adult Center Foundation (RACF), talked about the center and the foundation at a recent Roswell Sertoma Club meeting.

The RACF was founded in 1985 and the funding began, at that time, to augment the funding provided by the city. In the last five years the foundation has spent over $40,000 on major improvements not provided in the city budget, the most recent being two new pool tables. The city also provided two others.

Since 2014, the board of the RACF has only had members that are active at the RAC, either as instructors or active in classes or groups that meet there. This provides the board with current information on how they can best serve the RAC and thus the citizens of Roswell — the emphasis being serving all adults, not just seniors.

The Roswell Sertoma Club assists in the purchase of hearing aids and speech therapy for people with need, provides 27 $500 college scholarships each semester and supports various youth activities and other charitable causes. Anyone wishing to join the club is welcome to attend one of its meetings at noon at the Elks Lodge every Friday.
