James “Bonecrusher” Smith was also out supporting the local charity, an American former boxer who was, between December 1986 and March 1987, the WBA heavyweight champion. He was the first heavyweight champion with a college degree. Both are pictured with their team supporting the great golf tournament.

The Lake Marion Rotary Club adopted Vance-Providence Elementary School to provide school supplies and uniforms for this school year. On August 13, a group of Rotarians headed to VPE to take the school supplies collected. Additionally, the club had 100% participation in monetary donations to be used to provide a number of school uniforms to needy students. Those monies had double the impact thanks to Rotarian Chuck Abbott, who matched what the club had collected.
