Rotary District 7770 Governor Gary Bradham will be guest speaker at the Wednesday, Aug. 9 Capital Rotary Club meeting. Bradham, a retired Air Force officer, has been a Myrtle Beach Rotary member since 2005 and previously served in district posts for membership and finance. He’s a graduate of the Rotary Leadership Institute and received several District Service-Above-Self Awards. District 7770 includes 80 clubs and about 5,000 Rotarians in 25 eastern counties of South Carolina.
From left to right, Spirit of SC’s Teddy Turner, Club President Todd Musheff, and Hank Hofford, also of Spirit of SC.
Spirit of SC, a 140-ft. two-masted topsail schooner, honors Charleston’s once booming, but largely forgotten shipbuilding industry. The frames, planks and interior finish were shaped from reclaimed, South Carolina Live Oak, Cypress and Long Leaf Yellow Pine. Extensive varnish work showcases the raw beauty of these native woods and the fine craftsmanship joining it all together.The educational mission of Spirit is offering unique opportunities for students focusing on history, math, science and literature of South Carolina’s water resources and encouraging personal responsibility, contribution to community and stewardship of environment. The Rotary Club of Daniel Island was excited to welcome Mr. Hofford and Mr. Turner to tell Spirit’s story and we look forward to supporting their very worthwhile mission!

Do you worry about Alzheimer’s? We do not have a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but we must find one. Finding a cure starts with you. Give generously to the CART Fund through your Rotary Club. We had a successful Alzheimer’s Gala on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, SC to raise money for Alzheimer’s research. Those in attendance had a terrific time enjoying a great meal, very good featured speaker music from the WhitsEnd Band and an entertaining auction.
Rotary District 7770 is the home district of CART, having been started at the Rotary Club of Sumter by Roger Ackerman in 1995. Every year the CART (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) Fund gives research grants focused on finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, and the money raised through the gala will go toward that effort.
