Ok this might be considered a selfish plug, sorry.

The Summerville Evening Rotary Club has just created the a “charitable contribution foundation” within the club and made it as a 501C3 non-profit organization. I know many clubs around the district have formed 501C3 organizations within their clubs for various projects.

BUT did you know Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice? There is no increase in price for the shopper. To register your 501C3 organization with Amazon is very easy by sending in your official IRS exempt letter and a voided out check where you want the funds to be sent. Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com

Until you get your organization registered with Amazon Smile, please consider selecting the Rotary Club of Summerville Evening Charitable Foundation Inc. as your choice on Smile.Amazon.com.

Summerville Evening Rotary Club challenge P.E.T.S. to contribute to CART.

The Summerville Evening Rotary Club selected to support the CART Fund for its Rotary Has Heart project. Both of these projects were started here in South Carolina. The challenged was issued to club members to fill a sand bag with their spare change from their vehicles, desk drawers, change bowls and wine carafes. The bags collected were to be weighed and the heaviest would receive a $25 gift card.

Club member and incoming AG Alex Arntz cast out a challenge at the recent PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) to the PE members that funds collected at PETS would be joined with their own PETS sandbag and the Evening Club will match what was collected. PETS generated approximately $315.87.

On Monday, the sand bags were turned in, weighed and Terri Lee Moore-London had the heaviest bag at 23 pounds. The club collected a total of 74 pounds of coins, valued at $326.10 in addition to the PETS $315.87. A total of $641.97 going to CART this quarter.

The Summerville Evening Rotary Club makes every effort to conduct “Rotary RACs” or Rotary Random Acts of Kindness monthly. This month, we prepared the Saturday morning brunch for the guests of the Ronald McDonald House in Charleston. Conducting them monthly can be difficult on membership, so we make every effort to keep the RAC simple and small. We always invite new potential members to join us in the event. This was our first time at the Ronald McDonald house and discovered a beautiful professional kitchen to work in. Afterwards many of us went to our own brunch together for some social time. We will do this RAC again.

Summerville Evening Rotarian Runs in Paris Rotary Marathon

Summerville Evening Club Member Rachael Sheridan runs to Paris, ok not really, but she did run in the Rotary Marathon Running Fellowship group who ran in last week Paris, France Marathon. Rotary Fellowships are a great way to share your outside interests with other Rotarians worldwide. There are hundreds of fellowships worldwide available to join as Rotarians. For example there is a Rotary Fellowship for Curling, Cooking, Quilting, Doll lovers, Tennis, Lawyers, Marathon Running and one of the first organized, Yachting. Personally I am a member of the Photography, Police/Law Enforcement, Motorcycling, Beer and Wine fellowships. Joining a fellowship normally is a simple email or application with your Rotary information and a few dollars. Most change an annual fee or a Lifetime fee. Our District has a very active Wine Fellowship with meetings every other month.

 

Rotary International has not control over the specific fellowships but to be an officially sanctioned as a fellowship is like starting a new Rotary club with International members. Within our District, I have been organizing the Whiskey DRAM Fellowship, see www.whiskeydram.org  for more information. If you want more information on all the Rotary Fellowships, check out https://www.rotary.org/myrotary/en/rotary-fellowships

 

Congratulations to Rachael for completing another marathon and representing our club and district in Paris.

summerville 2The Summerville Evening Rotary Club conducts monthly RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) and while Past President Skip Williams is driving to work, he sees a pile of American Flags dumped for trash pickup outside a vacant house. Outraged he stops and pick up the flags and poles and voices his objections on Facebook. The Summerville Evening Rotary Club had a scheduled “social” meeting later that day, so the project turned into an impromptu RAK, where members were taught how to properly fold and dispose of a soiled American flag.

We are family!  Membership in Rotary International creates an instant bond both locally and world-wide.  When Amanda Taylor, wife of Dr. Thomas A. Taylor III, found out she was expecting their first child, she wanted to share the excitement with her Rotary family and also break the news to her husband in a unique and special way.  With the help of club members, the announcement of her pregnancy was made with the presentation of a “Baby on Board” sign at a club meeting.  Baby Taylor is due in the Spring of 2014.  Dr. Taylor, owner of Alignment Specific Chiropractic Clinic is a long time member of the Summerville Evening Rotary Club.

The Summerville Evening Rotary Club is the newest Rotary club in District 7770 and meets at Montreux Bar & Grill Restaurant, 127 West Richardson Avenue in Summerville on Monday’s at 5:30 p.m. All are welcome.
