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 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.

Rotary Club of North Myrtle Beach enjoyed a visit from Rick Kaplan and his Canine Angels group during the Tuesday lunch meeting at the Surf Club. Providing a second chance for both dogs and vets, Rick rescues dogs from shelters and prepares them to serve disabled veterans and first responders. Rick maintains a core pack of dogs that he uses for demonstrations and setting the tone for newcomers into the pack.
