Food Drive a Big Success!

The Rotary Club of the Lowcountry recently put together a Food Drive for needy families in our area of Beaufort and Port Royal and the surrounding Sea Islands. 
Members were asked to provide non-perishable food items and drop them off on Tuesday, November 10 so they could be donated.  We are happy to report that we were able to deliver 4 overflowing shopping carts full of groceries to HELP of Beaufort, a local non-profit that provides a safety net for thousands of people in Beaufort County.  This food will be distributed to those in need over the coming weeks.  Donations are still coming in and we will be accepting non-perishable food items for a second drive to be finalized soon.

Happy New Year!

This Holiday Season was a very busy time for Lowcountry Rotary and our Satellite Club.  We started off by helping lay wreaths at Beaufort National Cemetery as part of the Wreaths Across America effort.  This was a record year at Beaufort National Cemetery with over 21,000 wreaths layed on graves to honor those service members interred here.  
Next, it was bell-ringing time at the Cross Creek Walmart.  A tried and true indicator that Christmas is around the corner.  Also, our members adopted the residents at two local assisted living facilities and took gift bags to those staying at Helena Place and Sprenger.  The residents had made lists of things they could use like blankets, socks, shirts, tissues, cough drops, doggie treats for their pets, and of course candy!  Our Satellite Club added to the effort at Sprenger by getting students from Port Royal Elementary to help deliver the gifts and to sing some carols.

Lowcountry Rotary Recipe for 50,000 Meals!

Take one Rotary Club of 47 members.  Add an enthusiastic partner--a school full of energetic students, teachers, and parent volunteers. In less than 6 hours, The Rotary Club of the Lowcountry, in partnership with Riverview Charter School, helped fill and pack 50,000 meals in an effort for Rise Against Hunger.
Rotarians, students, parents, and teachers all worked together in shifts throughout the day on Friday, November 8 until the total was reached.  The gymnasium was a blur of activity as students cycled in and out for their shift.  One student, Gabby, was heard to say “This is my favorite day of the Year!”  After the plastic bags were filled with the flavor packet, freeze-dried vegetables, soy, and rice, they were taken to be weighed and sealed.  Then the bags were packed into boxes and loaded onto the waiting truck.  From there who knows where the meals will be consumed, but this is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable service projects our club will do this year!  For more pictures from this event, please click on the Photo Albums tab labeled “Rise Against Hunger 2019”

Tis the Season--For Service!!

Posted by Kathryn Crowley
The Rotary Club of the Lowcountry celebrated an extra busy day of fun, fellowship, and music on December 16th, starting the day early with Adopt A Highway, and braving the bone chilling cold weather along with our wonderful Beaufort High School Interact Club.
Immediately after, our members took different shifts ringing the bell for Salvation Army.  Santa’s elves were out in full force, complete with a singing, guitar-playing elf leading both volunteers and shoppers in Christmas carols and holiday songs.  Our club always has a heartwarming time ringing the bell enjoying smiles and collecting donations for the bucket. 
Lastly, on the busy agenda was our participation in Wreaths Across America at the Beaufort National Cemetery.   Volunteers joined together to place a wreath on a veteran’s grave to say that veteran’s name aloud and take a moment to thank them for their service to our country. 
We thank everyone who participated in the busy day and continue to be amazed at the incredible generosity and service of our club members!

Membership Month

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!

2 Service Projects and a Social--In ONE Day!

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.

Alzheimer's Benefit 10th Annual Memory Links Golf

Lowcountry Rotary's 10th Annual Memory Links Golf Tournament was our biggest ever!
  With 27 teams competing for prizes and having great fellowship at the Ocean Creek Golf Club on Fripp Island, this event has become the "funnest" golf tournament in Beaufort County.  But most importantly, all of the proceeds from this event go to two great organizations.  First, we donate to the CART Fund which was started by a Rotarian in Sumter and uses 100% of donations to fund cutting edge research to seek early detection, promising treatments or cures for this awful disease.  The CART Fund has been the largest non-governmental provider of grants for Alzheimer's research in the USA.  Second, we also donate funds to the local support agency, Alzheimer's Family Services of Greater Beaufort (AFSGB).  Currently, AFSGB offers 3 days of group respite care; a maintain your brain group for those recently diagnosed, or anyone wanting to stimulate and promote a healthy brain; home education and training programs for the community and for medical personnel are also available by special arrangement.
Our tournament would not happen or be successful without local companies and individuals stepping up to help sponsor our event.  Many thanks to Hargray, Hanna's Day of Hope, and Gene Rugula for being our major sponsors.  Also, our putting contest was sponsored by Bay Street Jewelers and they provided a beautiful necklace and earring set AND a matching ring that was the prize for the Ladies' Longest Drive Contest.
Individual hole sponsors were Crowley Wechsler & Associates LLC, Jatin J. Patel CPA, Trask & Lynn CPA, Paula Bunton & Jerry Mott, Stokes Brown Toyota, Complete Air LLC, O C Welch Ford , Benjamin Kolb, Smoak Morris Hughes LLC, and Michael Bestwick for the YMCA, and our local PEPSI distributor. 
Here is a list of our winners:
Look at pictures from the event in our Photo Album.  We should have the final numbers soon and get the funds out to our two recipients soon.

Beach Sweep Fun, Food, and Fellowship

As one of our past District Governors would say, we had "a little bit of Rotary and a whole lot of fun!"  About 1/3 of our club showed up on Saturday morning to cook Hamburgers and Hot Dogs for the many volunteers at the semi-annual Beach Sweep at Hunting Island State Park.  At last count we cooked 160 burgers and 120 hot dogs for the hungry crowd, who cleaned hundreds of pounds of litter from the beach, trails, roadsides, and marshes around the park.  From Boy Scout Troops to a large group of Wade Hampton High Schoolers, the volunteers worked all morning picking up litter before the start of the summer season.
Many thanks to Jeff, Alan, Dick & Gayle, Kerry & Paula, John & Rena, Frank, Bill E., Bill G., Charlotte, Elliot & Pam, Jerry, Chuck, and Alice for pitching in for this event.

Anti-Bullying Campaign

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry partnered with Beaufort Country School District who worked with Beaufort High’s Performing Arts Theatre Group to put on an assembly that every 6th grader in Beaufort County was invited to attend.  Beaufort Middle, Lady’s Island Middle Robert Small’s Middle and Whale Branch Middle Schools all attend presentations at Beaufort High’s Performing Arts Center.  The Theatre Group put on thought-provoking skits and involved the students and the teachers. Beaufort High’s Theatre Group and Rotary Club of the Lowcountry then traveled to Bluffton Middle and Hilton Head Island Middle to put on the same presentation.  The teachers were in attendance at the assembly as well since they are seeing some of these bullying behaviors taking place but unaware of the really harm being caused and may be turning a blind eye to the situation. The program was designed for the teachers to take action, let the victim know they don’t have to tolerate being treated this way, encourage bystanders who see something to say something and to let the bully’s know that this sort of behavior is not to be tolerated.

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry distributed anti-bullying activity books and bookmarks to each student as they exited the assembly.  The school district also had the Rotarians distribute arm bands that had an anti-bullying message and telephone number listed in case they wanted to speak with someone outside their school.

Last year, the drama group performed in front of all the 6th graders in the entire school district, at the Rotary District 7770 Conference in Myrtle Beach, and at the Zone 33 Rotary Peace Symposium in North Carolina.
For a clip of the skits, see the link below:
