Pictured are the Chicora Rotarian volunteers who helped with Operation Happy Feet the second picture is the young recipients of new shoes.  This Rotarian project is a wonderful way to help the needy of our area, by providing shoes for the grade school kids in Myrtle Beach. This is a collected effort between RI , Chicora Rotary, and a local shoe store. Children from local schools were identified as needing assistance with new shoes. They are given a certificate  for a pair of shoes. The child comes to the store and chooses a pair of shoes, they show the shoes to the parent for approval. If approval is received, the child takes the shoes home. The   Chicora team is proud to provide this service.

ppropriate for the first day of November, Ms. Elizabeth Pooles shared her journey as a Mary Kay representative and breast cancer survivor, with the Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise. Diagnosed in January, Ms. Pooles turned hard to her faith and family to realize that the public speaking and confidence building she had learned from Mary Kay lead her to this moment. Her purpose was found and that was to share her cancer journey with other women and empower them and their family through tough times. Ms. Pooles has created a Youtube channel where she films the journey as she gets CAT scans and radiation treatment. See the link below to watch a video from her channel.

SC Philharmonic Keeps Classics Alive

Community engagement and educational programs help the SC Philharmonic keep classical music alive, fun and relevant in the Midlands, according to music director Morihiko Nakahara, Capital Rotary’s guest speaker for Nov. 1.  Nakahara (shown demonstrating a conductor’s baton signals to the orchestra) has promoted interactive and outreach efforts since joining the Philharmonic in 2008.  Some of the most successful include (1) “Conduct the Phil” – an open podium where spectators take their turn leading groups of string players at public events; (2) concerts, youth orchestras and in-school programs to spark students’ passion for music; and (3) a “healing harmonies” project that sends Philharmonic musicians to area healthcare facilities to assist in “soothing the soul while the body mends.”  Nakahara says outreach is necessary to “break down the barrier between musicians and the community at large” so the Philharmonic can continue to perform and promote high-quality symphonic music.
