WELCOME

Dear Friends and Rotarians,
Our club meets at Montreux Bar & Grill Restaurant, 127 West Richardson Ave, Summerville, SC Monday's at 5:30 PM. All are welcome!

As we recap our meeting on Monday September 18, 2017
This week we were excited to have a brief presentation from each of the following committee chairs: Club Administration, Service Projects, Foundation, Membership, Foundation Chair, Public Image Chair, Social Chair, 10 Star Rotarian, Club Foundation Committee, and Youth Exchange Committee. Consider joining a new committee or staying put and continue to make an impact. All new members MUST be on a committee.
Our very own exchange student Jessica Calle from Peru shared with us some desserts from her country. We are excited to have Jessica with us.

This will allow Rotarians and our friends to respond to the immediate needs and support of those impacted, as we had done during Hurricane Matthew. Financial donations can be made by sending checks to the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry at 4 Northridge Drive, Suite A, and PO Box 23019, Hilton Head Island, SC 29925. Please indicate Rotary Fund # 474 in the memo area of the checks.
