Our speaker at the lunch meeting of the North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club Tuesday, March 24, 2015 was consultant and trainer Summer Turner. In a presentation called “It’s Not YOU, It’s Your BRAIN!” Summer spoke about the major differences between the brains of extroverts and introverts and why introverts need to learn a different way of selling in order to be successful. She spoke about her training program for introverted women in multi-level marketing companies called “Sales Success for Women Who Hate Selling!” All of Summer’s trainings include teaching participants how to “think smart with their heart.” Her mission is to teach people in business how to connect with customers authentically so they become fans for life.

If you come home to pink flamingos adorning your front yard, you’ve been flocked. The flamingos of the North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club are flocking North Myrtle Beach neighborhoods.  For a $50 donation you can flock your family’s,  friend’s or neighbor’s yard and the funds raised will be used for community projects. We will post the flocking on our facebook page and encourage you to share photos of these beautifull pink birds before we move them to their next location, usually within 48 hours. Call Tripp Davis at 843.242.2292 if you have the next perfect location for our flock.

The Rotary Club of North Myrtle Beach would like to thank everyone who recently attended our Annual Spaghetti Dinner. Thank you to Carrabba’s for their support and making the dinner, thanks also to sponsors BNC Bank and the Printing Port for their part in this year’s event. The money raised from the dinners, bake sale and silent auction will be used for community projects in North Myrtle Beach.

 

Following on the heels of the Spaghetti Dinner was the Rotary Club’s involvement in the CitiImpact/Meal Mania food pack-a-thon. The North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club together with the NMB High School Interact Club sponsored 3 teams to pack meals at the Sun News Warehouse. The two hour shift, comprised of our teams, local churches and other civic organizations packed 163 cartons of food or the equivalent of 39,120 meals. While these meals do go out internationally, some of the meals packed during our shift will benefit Shepherd’s Table in Conway. NMB Rotarian Gary Gaffney is one of the organizers of the CitiImpact/Meal Mania event and it provides a great opportunity to help the community and work together as a team.

For those Rotarians who didn’t get to participate in Meal Mania, we set up our own mini pack-a-thon at Tuesday’s lunch meeting. Through a grant, the Rotary District and the Rotary Club of North Myrtle Beach matched funds and went grocery shopping for non-perishable food items, putting together bags of food for Sea Haven’s Combat Hunger program. There were white shopping bags of food everywhere at the Surf Club on Tuesday, until we packed them up and delivered them to Sea Haven for distribution. Thank you to Boulineau’s for the donation of the bags.

The North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club’s guest at their Tuesday lunch meeting, Dana Black, Executive Director of the North Strand Housing Shelter, spoke to the club about the shelter and the programs that they have to offer. They are the only shelter in our area to accept families and they’re in the process of building a new facility that will house 53 people. This facility will also include a Veterans’ wing. Not just providing shelter, North Strand’s residents have 7 days to become part of a 60 or 90 day program that will help get them back on their feet. Transportation is available to them while they look for work, but they are also responsible for daily household chores around the shelter. North Strand has a No Tolerance policy for drugs or alcohol and partnered with Miller-Motte, they offer residents access to job search support such as resume writing and interview skills.

CoryMcCordThe North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club’s Exchange Student, Cory McCord, recently spent time at both the morning and the lunch meetings presenting a photo journal of his time in Germany. He began his year in Wuppertal, Germany, located southeast of Dusseldorf. While there, Cory enjoyed not only a tour of Germany, but also a Euro-Tour, through a Netherlands District, which took him to Prague, Venice and Rome, just to name a few cities.

In addition to seeing much of the scenery Germany had to offer, he also experienced a hunting trip with one of his host families, some beach time on an island off the coast and Christmas on a smaller scale than his mom’s usual celebration. He saw a lot of snow and built a first rate snowman. Oktoberfest in Germany seemed to be a favorite among his many adventures.
The Rotary Club of North Myrtle Beach will be hosting its annual Family Spaghetti Fest on Thursday, November 14, 2013 from 5-7:30pm at the North Myrtle Beach Primary School. With the help of Carrabbas, BNC and The Printing Port, the Rotary Club is serving up a delicious spaghetti dinner. In addition to dinner, they will be hosting a silent auction, bake sale, live entertainment, as well as, face painting and contests for the kids. Get tickets for just $8 from any North Myrtle Beach Rotarian and they are also available at The Printing Port in North Myrtle Beach.
