Continuing a twenty-nine year tradition

SV Rotary Scholarship press release 6.16.17

The Spring Valley Rotary Club recognized six outstanding local high school students with a $1500 scholarship at a recent club lunch meeting.

The scholarship recipients from Spring Valley High School are: Paige Ashworth who plans to attend Clemson University majoring in architecture; Maya Ingram, enrolling at the University of South Carolina majoring in biological sciences and Litzel Martinez-Garcia who will attend Columbia College as a speech pathology major. Recipients from Ridgeview High School are: Lahsen Grich who will attend the University of South Carolina majoring in nursing; Tajah Pinkard enrolling at Spelman College majoring in psychology and Dasya’ Young who will attend Furman University majoring in biology.

The club provides applications to high school guidance counselors in February and selections are made annually in April. Spring Valley Rotary has been awarding these scholarships for the past twenty-nine years with proceeds from the club’s annual pecan sale. The club provides six scholarships annually for local students as part of the club’s service to the community.

Rotary Golf Tournament a Success

By all accounts it was a good day at the golf course…except for, perhaps, some scores. The event was “Putting for Pupils”, the inaugural golf outing hosted by Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise on June 2 at Hackler Course on Coastal Carolina University.
The event featured numerous give-aways, prizes and awards. Several golfers said that they had never received so many gifts before at a tournament and many asked for the date for the next one (not yet set). Seventeen full teams and more than sixty golfers participated, a rather high number for such a first time effort.
The event was named “Putting for Pupils” because of the many things that the Rotary chapter does to help local students, such as providing shoes, clothing, school supplies and dictionaries at Carolina Forest, River Oaks, Waccamaw and Ocean Bay elementary schools.
Breakfast meetings of The Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise are held every Wednesday from 7 to 8 am at The Famous Toastery, 2005 Oak Heart Road, off of Carolina Forest Blvd and in the complex of stores near Ollies. Guests are always welcomed and encouraged to attend.
The meetings do not affect the normal business hours of The Famous Toastery.
For more information visit CarolinaForestRotary.org or call (843) 903-1223.

Volunteers from Alzheimer’s Family Services in Beaufort and surrounding area. This 13th Annual Memory Links Golf Tournament was a successful fundraising effort again this year due to the hard work of all the Rotary members, Alzheimer’s volunteers and business sponsor support. This was a team effort on a beautiful Saturday to again raise money for a cause that affects so many of us—directly and indirectly. This event was the epitome of Service Above Self.
