Rotary Golf Tournament a Success

 1st Row Center Box  Comments Off on Rotary Golf Tournament a Success
Jun 132017
 
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.
For more information visit CarolinaForestRotary.org or call (843) 903-1223.

On May 24, Horry County Sheriff Phillip Thompson spoke to the Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise. The Sheriff discussed a relatively new program initiated by his office called SOAR (See Overcome Achieve Recover) designed to help youth 12 to 16 years of age not take the wrong path in their lives.
He explained how the program involves both the youth and their parents.
His talk was well received.

We leave cancer at the dock by providing cancer survivors the opportunity to heal and regain physical and psychological strength and wellness through the camaraderie and competition of dragon boat paddling and racing. We also have an Outreach program where we make grants to local cancer patients with needs they are unable to afford or for which they lack coverage. We have provided food, paid rent and utility bills, and provided transportation to medical treatments. We will help you with a fund raising page and a means to reach out to your social contacts for fund raising!
