Columbia’s WIS-TV and Mungo Homes have honored Capital Rotary Club member Mike Glover for his positive contributions to life in the Midlands. A licensed charter boat captain and Lake Murray fishing guide, Glover earned a Community Builder Award for organizing a fishing tournament for local troops and wounded warriors completely free of charge over the past four years. More than 60 veterans participated in the year’s fishing tournament, which Glover called a heartfelt “thank you” for their service to the nation. Capital Rotary president Mark Bokesch, along with several other club members, was instrumental in Glover’s award nomination. As a Community Builder winner, Glover received a symbolic hard hat and $1,000 from the Michael J. Mungo Foundation to donate to the designated 501C-3 charity of his choice. WIS-TV featured the award presentation during a segment in their local newscast (see below) Community Builders include those who have made a significant impact on a group in the Midlands; who have made the area a better place to live; and who fill a need not served by traditional governmental services/agencies. wistv.com – Columbia, South Carolina Link to WISTV featured article: http://www.wistv.com/story/29229288/community-builder-lake-murray-fishing-guide-holds-tournament-for-wounded-warriors Columbia Capital Rotary Community Builder
