On Veterans Day, November 11, 2016. Lovenia Williams (Standing in center rear of photo), Vice President of Coastal Carolina University Rotaract Club, is pictured with local area Veterans during a special moment at Eggs Up Grill, Conway. Lovenia, a CCU student, presented each Veteran a home made wallet card with a star from a retired American Flag reminding them in this moving tribute:

“I am part of our American Flag that has flown over the USA. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that….you are not forgotten.” The Rotaract Club is sponsored by Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise.

The Rotary World Choir is Calling All Singers!

The International Fellowship of Rotarian Musicians (IFRM) forms the Rotary World Choir each year to sing during the Interfaith Service on the opening day of the Rotary International Convention. This coming year in Atlanta to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Rotary Foundation, IFRM is determined to have at least 100 voices in the choir. The choir is open to all Rotarians from around the world. This year in Seoul we had singers from Japan, Australia, India, Korea, England and the USA. As a member of IFRM I invite you to join the Rotary World Choir and sing during the Convention in Atlanta. This is a great way to participate in the convention and meet people from around the world. You will get a new perspective on the international aspect of Rotary. And of course you know you like to sing! The Rotarians of Districts 6900, 6910, and 6920 in Georgia look forward to having you join us in Atlanta. I am optimistic that with your help we can make this happen.

To get the details and to register to join the choir, go to the IFRM website:

If you want any more information about the Rotary World Choir please contact me, Barry Oxford, via e-mail: I’d love to hear from you if you register.
