Below is a recap for the Rotary events for the month of June in addition to the information I sent earlier about our installation banquet:
June 3, 2020, Page Kiniry, President and CEO of Brookgreen Gardens, was the weekly breakfast speaker held virtually. Brookgreen Gardens is 89 years old and contains nearly 9000 acres in the Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island area. Page shared with the members all the wonderful outdoor, socially distancing events that are available to attendees.
June 10, 2020, Sundi Herring, Senior Manager of Community Development with the American Cancer Society and Regional Director of Hope Lodge, was the weekly breakfast speaker held virtually. Hope Lodge provides a residence and supportive environment for visiting cancer patients and their caregivers while they undergo treatment locally. Hope Lodge started 50 years ago in Charleston.
June 17, 2020, Kevin Mills, President and CEO of the South Carolina Aquarium, located in downtown Charleston, was the weekly breakfast speaker held virtually. The Aquarium is celebrating its 20th anniversary and is continuing the good work of their many educational projects. College students and scholarship recipients, Jarvis Bess (senior at USC Beaufort) and Carrington Wigfall (sophomore at Winthrop) provided members updates on their educational experience.
In June, Rotarians also held service projects which included a local blood drive with the American Red Cross and another food supply drive with ECCO in the Cainhoy Community.
