Beaufort resident Nick Hunt is the 2016 recipient of the Rotary Bowl, the Rotary Club of Beaufort’s highest honor.  Nick is the 53rd Rotarian to receive the Bowl, which was first awarded in 1936.  It is not presented every year, but only when the Rotary Club of Beaufort believes they have a member of who has exhibited significant civic responsibility over time.

For more than 40 years, Nick Hunt has worked tirelessly in both his Rotary Club and his community.  He served with the local United Way for five years, he was on the board of the Salvation Army for five years, he recently completed two years as a board member of his church, and he has been a guardian with power of attorney for numerous patients with dementia at Summit Place.

Nick joined the Rotary Club of Beaufort in 1977, and became President of the Club at age 36.

Most notable among Nick’s many achievements has been his and his wife Rosemary’s involvement with the Youth Exchange Program and the Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarships.

A respected businessman in the Beaufort community, Nick Hunt is the 2016 recipient of the Rotary Club of Beaufort’s most prestigious awards.

Bruce Clemens, an active Rotarian in Guatemala who now lives in Bluffton, spoke to the Bluffton Rotary Club about his current project in San Lucas, Guatemala, through his company Agua del Pueblo, which was formed in 1972. The peoples of San Lucas on the edge of Lake Atitlan have no sewer system and are using polluted waters of the lake as their drinking water source. The project is working to pull water from the deepest area, where the water is not affected by pollution to provide the town with a clean source. Working with Rotary Clubs and Rotary International grants to finance this project and provide education to the people of Guatemala is a major focus for Bruce and his company. Bruce regularly travels to Guatemala with students researching Global Sustainability.
