What a wonderful way to show our Rotary Love by participating in “Rotary Has Heart!” Last year, we
were asked by RIVP Anne Matthews to be involved in an activity on February 14 which revolved around
addressing hunger and hunger related issues. Clubs and individuals were asked to be involved in some
activity to demonstrate that “Rotary DOES have heart” and that collectively, we can do something about
the 28% of children in South Carolina who face food anxiety issues on a daily basis. This year, I am
asking your club to take the effort one step further – instead of being involved for only one day, I am
asking the clubs of District 7770 to be involved in “Rotary Has Heart” the entire week leading up to
February 14 (from February 8 – 14, 2015). What an appropriate way to show our love for our fellow
man than to be involved in an effort that feeds the hungry. Join your fellow Rotarians in making “Rotary
Has Heart!” an annual event!
On another note – our minds are turning towards our 2015 District Conference to be held on March 20-
22, 2015 at the Marina Inn in Myrtle Beach, SC. The theme this year is “Rotary…the (bow)ties that bind
us together”. William Johnson and his team are busily putting together a conference that will be FUN
and information filled! Registration is NOW OPEN! Please go to our Rotary District 7770 website, click
on the calendar, scroll to March and REGISTER!!! We look forward to celebrating our accomplishments
this year and look forward to continuing to “Light Up Rotary”!
I’m sure you saw my email congratulating Gary Bradham from the Myrtle Beach club on his appointment
as DG for 2017-18. Join me in supporting Gary as he begins the process of becoming our DG.
Finally, this month, tell those that you love, “I Love You”. Remember that love is best shown if it is
multiplied – put your Rotary sprit in action and love your fellow man through service.
With “loving” respect,
DG Jimmie Williamson
