Attorney J.R. Battles is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force. After J.R.’s military career was over, he worked at the South Carolina Department of Revenue for a couple of years. J.R. then applied and was accepted into law school where he graduated with his Juris Doctor degree. J.R. has worked his entire adult life to serve others, whether it was making sacrifices in the military, or helping taxpayers understand difficult tax regulations or now helping his clients with their legal issues. J.R. works just as diligently on every case for every client because he knows your issue is your number one concern. J.R. has lived in South Carolina most of his life and is originally from beautiful Beaufort. J.R. met his wife in Beaufort and together they happily raise their two young children in this great state of South Carolina J.R. believes we are all responsible to make our state as best a place to raise children as possible. J.R. joined our club because he wants to make a difference in his hometown community! The Cayce West Columbia Rotary is pleased to welcome J.R. Battles as our newest member.
You are invited to a night out at the ballpark. Friday, May 19, 2017 has been designated as Rotary Night with the Columbia Fireflies. It will be an opportunity for Rotary club members to have a great social time. Tickets are $9.00 each and food vouchers are $5.00. We will all sit together along the first base line and have a great time. Bring your family and friends and join us for a wonderful time together at the ballpark.
The Rotary Has Heart Project for the St. George Rotary Club is our ongoing backpack buddies program. We pick up food from the Lowcountry Food Bank once a month and deliver that to the individual Interact Clubs (we support 2 Interact clubs). Dorchester Academy has 35 students in its interact club. They usually have 10-12 students that help unload the food and then the juniors (12 students) pack the bags. They pack about 500 bags and deliver them to Williams Memorial Elementary School each month. The administrator there hands out about 125 bags every Friday to the underprivileged students each week so that they will have something substantial to eat over the weekend.
The Rotary Club of Spring Valley acknowledged two new Bequest Society members recently, Rotarians Brian Dunphy and his wife Shelly and President Wendy Fuess and her husband Steven Friedenberg are shown here with Spring Valley Foundation Chair, Sharleen Craig and our very own PDG and Foundation supporter, Paula Matthews. These two members and their spouses have made the decision to include The Rotary Foundation in their estate plans. We greatly appreciate your support – and your legacy will ensure that Rotary continues to ‘do good in the world!’

A special moment between two long -time friends and fellow PDGS , Bob Squatriglia (left) and
David Michaux ,III (right) as Bob presented David with a suitably decorated post hole digger as a ” departing the District memento “. Bob and Betty Squatriglia are relocating from Conway (District 7770) to Fort Mill ( District 7750) next month, after nearly forty years in Conway and our district.The move will place them within nmt 35 mins from their four children and 11 grandchildren in the DelWebb Carolina Orchards community.
Bob is Vice President Emeritus for Student Affairs at Coastal Carolina University, where he was known as “Dr.Bob”, and David is Past Director of Rotary International. The tool is suitably wrapped with a “Carolina Blue ” ribbon on the handles and a “Rotary gold” ribbon on the blades, also denoting the “blue and gold of Rotary”. Squatriglia served as District Secretary to then District Governor Michaux in 1984 -85, and Aide to the Director to then RI Director Michaux in 2000-2002, and General Chairman of Michaux’s Zone 33-34 institute in 2000-1. Squatriglia served as District Governor in 1987-88. The inscription on the handle reads” to D 3, a P.H.D. from a Ph.D.”, (sic) a Post Hole Digger from a Ph.D.( Dr.Squatriglia). Both PDGs always subscribed to the late PDG and PRID J.Lambert (Lambo) Schwartz credo of ” a Little Rotary and a Lot of Fun”-and this memento event is in that same tradition of their dear friend and longtime mentor.
