By all accounts it was a good day at the golf course…except for, perhaps, some scores. The event was “Putting for Pupils”, the inaugural golf outing hosted by Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise on June 2 at Hackler Course on Coastal Carolina University.
The event featured numerous give-aways, prizes and awards. Several golfers said that they had never received so many gifts before at a tournament and many asked for the date for the next one (not yet set). Seventeen full teams and more than sixty golfers participated, a rather high number for such a first time effort.
The event was named “Putting for Pupils” because of the many things that the Rotary chapter does to help local students, such as providing shoes, clothing, school supplies and dictionaries at Carolina Forest, River Oaks, Waccamaw and Ocean Bay elementary schools.
Breakfast meetings of The Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise are held every Wednesday from 7 to 8 am at The Famous Toastery, 2005 Oak Heart Road, off of Carolina Forest Blvd and in the complex of stores near Ollies. Guests are always welcomed and encouraged to attend.
The meetings do not affect the normal business hours of The Famous Toastery.
