Have you seen us on the Big Screen at the Beaufort Water Festival?  Do you recognize some of our members?  Would you like to learn more about the best Service Organization in Beaufort County (and in the World)?
 
Get in touch with one of our 40 members and come for a visit.  We meet almost every Friday morning at the Golden Corral on Robert Smalls Pkwy.  Oh, and if you saw the video in Waterfront Park but didn't get the sound, you can watch it and listen in by clicking the YouTube link below.
 
Congratulations to Alice Howard for winning the 2nd annual Brackets for Buckets competition.  The competition raised $85.00 to be donated to the CART fund in Alice's name.  Thank you to all who participated in this fun event!
 
 
  

Terri Stokes ran a great program on the last Friday in August with a focus on membership.  Several members spoke on who introduced them to Rotary, what Rotary means to them, and why they stay in the club.  The words we heard several times were about giving back to our community, volunteering, and how we have become a family!  We can truly accomplish more together than any of us can on our own. 
Kathy Crowley put together a wonderful slide show of our members and families recently.  If you have any doubts that we are the "Fun Club" just watch this video.  Let's keep doing good things and having fun doing them!

Committed to the Beaufort community, Rotary Club of the Lowcountry raises thousands of dollars each year which is reinvested in numerous non-profits supporting a variety of programs including anti bullying, homelessness, domestic violence and Alzheimer’s research. 
Rotary Club of the Lowcountry is proud to be a supporter of Jones Boxing Academy.  The Club recently provided much needed cleaning supplies and financial support that will help the Academy meet their mission.
                                        
The future goals that Jones Boxing Academy would like to achieve are being able to provide after school care/training, camps for at risk children, and camps for obese children. Anyone that is interested in Boxing Fitness (any age), Amateur (start at age 8) and Professional (18-35) Boxing Management can sign up by going to 17 A Eastern Road Beaufort SC 29906, email at jonesboxingacademyllc40@yahoo.com, or call (843)476-1868
Almost half of our club (and several spouses) showed up to cook hamburgers and hot dogs for more than 100 volunteers who cleaned Hunting Island State Park on Saturday, May 30.  We also hosted 14 kids from the CAPA shelter for a fun beach outing.
Look for more photos in our photo album on the home page of Lowcountryrotary.org.
On Friday, April 24, we gathered in the morning for a very informative meeting on DragonBoat Beaufort, but right after work we got down to business.  We landscaped our 2 entrances of the Spanish Moss Trail.  Lowcountry Rotary adopted this section of the trail from Brotherhood Road to Riverside Drive last year and we spent a little time adding some plants that should make these two trail-heads more attractive.  Be sure to take a look at the Photo Album on this event on our home page.
Then, we moved on to Alice and Gene Howard's house for a social and another element to a service project.  Our club is donating about 140 books to the Beaufort County School District to support our Anti-Bullying initiative.  We took a little time out from the social to put some "Donated by Rotary Club of the Lowcountry" stickers inside the front cover of each book.
Paula Bunton, spouse of Rotary Club of the Lowcountry's member Kerry Bunton was honored with Rotary International's Spouse Service Award last night. Lou Mello was on hand at Area 5's Joint Installation Dinner to present the award which is one of only 100 given worldwide. We are so very proud of her and truly appreciate all she does for our club.

Welcome to Lowcountry Rotary Club!

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry is known as the little club that could. Although a small club we are very active in the community giving our time and funds we raise to local non-profit organizations. We gave over $40,000 in the 2016/2017 year to local non-profits. We have also applied for and received Rotary Simplified Grants for such things as the “Good Neighbor” Free Clinic and training materials for Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity as well as recently for the Beaufort County 6th Graders Anti-Bully Program materials.  We also cook burgers and hot dogs twice a year for the Hunting Island Beach Sweep volunteers.
 
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
