NMB Rotary_Flocked SignIf 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 wrapped up a busy November which included our Thanksgiving Food Drive and our Literacy Program at the local North Myrtle Beach Schools.
Each year the club labels coloring books, dictionaries and thesauruses with the student’s name for the kindergarteners, third graders and sixth graders of North Myrtle Beach. We then visit the classrooms and pass out the books to the students. It’s a program we look forward to every year. The club’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive collected over 2,900 lbs. of food for the St. Delight’s Food Pantry. During one of the Rotary Club’s lunch meetings, we rolled up shopping bags, supplied by Boulineau’s, with the food drive flyer. Two days later, we dropped the rolled bags at the end of neighborhood driveways and on Saturday, November 22, we collected and delivered the food to St. Delight.

The North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club’s next big event is their Annual Golf Tournament to be held January 24th at Grande Dunes. The proceeds raised at this tournament will be providing scholarships to North Myrtle Beach High School seniors.

The Rotary Club of North Myrtle Beach spent their Tuesday lunch meeting preparing bags to drop in communities in North Myrtle Beach on Thursday, November 20th. The morning of November 22nd, we will back out in those neighborhoods to collect non-perishable food donations which will be given to St. Delight’s Food Bank.

If you are in a gated community and we can’t access you to provide a bag, we would be grateful for any food donations that you can drop off at Carolina Family Dental, Prince Resort and Sandhill’s Bank (NMB location) through November 22nd. Your generous donations will help provide Thanksgiving Dinners to local families. Thanks again to Boulineau’s for the donation of the bags. Please remember to support the businesses that support your community.

North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club’s guest speaker at the Tuesday’s lunch meeting was Coach Blair Hardin, Head Football Coach at North Myrtle Beach High School. To say Coach Hardin eats, breathes and sleeps football is probably an understatement. He grew up around football with his twin brother and his dad. He was up for anything he could do just to be around the game. Blair’s excited about heading up North Myrtle Beach High’s football program and not only working to improve these young men as athletes but to set an example and help these athletes become responsible young men working in their community.

North Myrtle Beach Rotary’s guest speaker at the Tuesday lunch meeting was, author and member/Past President of the East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club, Andra Watkins. Andra recently published a novel To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis, published by Word Hermit Press.
To launch her book, Andra undertook the journey of walking the 444-mile Natchez Trace as the pioneers did, from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN. She walked fifteen miles a day/six days a week, taking 34 days to finish her adventure. Andra shared the experience with her 80-year-old father. He would drop her off each morning and pick her up each afternoon along the Trace, spending his time talking with locals. It turned out to a be, in hindsight, a humorous and, in her words, “life-changing” adventure.

North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club’s guest speaker last week, Russ Cavender, THE SNAKE CHASER, brought some friends to the Tuesday lunch meeting at the Surf Club. His guests included a copperhead, a cottonmouth, several corn snakes and a black hog nose snake. He is an avid believer in not killing these animals but finding new homes. The cottonmouth, found near water, are the most dangerous. It’s important to know that if you do find a snake and behead it, the head continues a biting motion and can still be deadly. In addition to chasing snakes, Russ also handle the removal of other reptiles and wildlife.

The North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club’s speaker last week, Dr. Michael Peters, spoke to the club about the benefits of Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and the HBOT chambers coming to the area. HBOT is an AMA recognized medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxyygen in a total body chamber where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as part of an overall medical care plan. The oxygen level in the patient’s blood-stream is raised many times above normal, which helps control infections and promote healing in many kinds of illness or injury.
