On April 2, 2020 was the Club’s first virtual meeting.  Weekly virtual meetings are held on Wednesday mornings from 8 am to 9 am.  If interested in attending virtually during this social distancing time please contact

On April 8, 2020 the first Club president, Mary Murray, was the breakfast speaker at the Club’s weekly virtual breakfast meeting.  Mary shared her perspective of the challenges of starting the Club and how Daniel Island has changed over the years.

On April 15, 2020, Steve Slifer, distinguished member and respected economist, provided those in attendance at the weekly virtual breakfast meeting his economic forecast.  We appreciate Steve’s contribution to the Club and his willingness to share his wealth of knowledge during this unsettling time.

On April 22, 2020, Ashley Henyan, Executive Director of the local Red Cross, spoke at the Club’s weekly virtual breakfast meeting.  She spoke on how the Red Cross is pivoting from addressing traditional disaster relief to focusing on the Pandemic.

April 29, 2020, George Roberts, active member and CEO of East Cooper Meals on Wheels (ECMOW), was this week’s virtual breakfast speaker.  ECMOW started 35 years ago and has more than 450 volunteers.  ECMOW’s motto is “More than a Meal”.  George expressed appreciation for the outpouring of support for the organization from members of the community.

Rotarians were active this month in building a horseshoe pit at Summit Place that allowed residents to be outside enjoy the nice weather while practicing social distancing, as well as teaming up with Daniel Island Community Fund in its fundraising efforts for local charities.

The Club also recognized this month this year’s scholarship recipients, Emma Albano a graduate from Bishop England, and Afua Lincoln, a graduate from Philip Simmons High School.  WE WISH THEM THE BEST ON THIS NEXT CHAPTER OF LIFE!
