Consistent with the theme of ” A LITTLE ROTARY AND A LOT OF FUN” first espoused by the late J. Lambert ” Lambo ” Schwartz, past director of Rotary International, the Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise established the “member classification of Bob”, which was acknowledged at a recent club meeting. Pictured above (left to right) are members: Bob Squatriglia,Bob White and Bob Lepore. Each is a long -time Rotarian with a unique background and membership linked through the practice of “sharing Rotary” through sponsorship. Bob White, a Rotarian of 50 years, is a retired public school superintendent who upon retirement and relocation from New Jersey,later became the Charter President of the Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise. Bob Squatriglia, a Rotarian of 39 years, was later sponsored by Bob White as he transferred membership from the Rotary Club of Conway. Squatriglia, in turn, sponsored Bob Lepore, a Rotarian of 23 years, who relocated from the Rotary Club of Brick (NJ). The three Bob’s total 132+ years of Rotary service.Squatriglia is Vice President Emeritus of Student Affairs,Coastal Carolina University, and Lepore is franchise owner of Fire House Subs and is a retired firefighter. The Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise meets each Wednesday at 7:00 am in Beef OBrady’s,located in the Carolina Forest Kroger Mall. Visitors are always invited to attend and enjoy a free breakfast while learning about service opportunities in our community.
Blythewood Rotary Club member, Dr. Cheryl Guy, recently appeared on the nationally televised game show, Jeopardy! A long-time fan of the game, Dr. Guy has been trying to become a contestant for nearly 30 years. In January 2016, she took the online test, along with 70,000 other adults. In May, she was invited to audition in Charleston, SC. This was her third audition in the last 10 years. Finally, in September, the call came to fly to California for a taping of the show. On January 12, 2017, her show aired and she won in an exciting Final Jeopardy to become the Jeopardy champion and return for a second show on January 13. On the second show, despite having the lead going into finals, she missed the question and finished in 2nd place for the day. However, it was an exciting experience and a dream come true. Cheryl spoke to the Blythewood Club about her experience and many members of the club attended a viewing party for the Jan. 12 show. She has also been invited to speak to the Spring Valley Rotary Club on February 9, 2017.
An Induction Ceremony was held on Tuesday, Jan. 31st at Spring Valley High School and 52 members were inducted into the Spring Valley High School Interact Club.
Several members of the sponsoring Spring Valley Rotary Club participated in this event coordinated by Rotarian Holly Swan including Principal Jeff Temoney, also a Spring Valley Rotarian.
This Interact Club is an active group within their school community and also participates with Rotarians for the club’s quarterly Adopt-a-Highway clean up.
Congratulations to the Spring Valley High Interact Club.
