Our club was delighted to have District Governor Jimmie Williamson visit us on October 28 meeting  DG Jimmie told us of his background and his Rotary experiences, and especially what inspired him to be a Rotary leader. He left us with a greater appreciation for all of the good things that Rotary does, and how we can join him in lighting up Rotary Our DG flanked by President Larry and AG Dick We demonstrated our commitment to doing good works locally by presenting a check to Rosalyn Brown and Woody Rutter of Thumbs Up for their support for our charity shrimp race.

Sea Island Rotary Distributes School Uniforms

With the help of a District 7770 grant matched by club funds, the Sea Island Rotary is distributing school uniforms to elementary and middle schools in northern Beaufort County. Each school is allotted a budget based on need. School counselors determine the needs of their students and then submit a purchase order to our club. We work with vendors to get the most economical price so we can make the most of our funds.Our club then fulfills the need of uniforms, a need for pants or shirts or both.  Once the orders are fulfilled, Rotarians volunteer to deliver to the orders to the schools for distribution.
Sea Island Rotary is committed to such programs that serve the less fortunate children of Beaufort County. We believe this program conforms well with our club’s goals as well as those of Rotary International. Our goal with this program is for the less fortunate children to dress in compliance according to the guidelines of our local school district and to raise the children’s confidence so they can better focus on their education.
