During a recent meeting, Rotarians were presented with an overview of the Chapin Memorial Library by its director, Jen Nassar.
Chapin Memorial Library, which recently celebrated its 70th birthday, opened June 1, 1949, funded by the Chapin Foundation, which provided $40,000 for a library on city parkland. The facility was founded on its current site and has been enlarged four times. Over the years, the library has expanded its materials and programming to include films, concerts, lectures, activity groups, book discussions, and exercise classes.
“Chapin Memorial Library is near and dear to the hearts of our Rotarians,” said President Don Hovis. “Literacy is one of our initiatives, and one of our service projects,” he continued.

Rotarians Enjoy Fall Outing
Myrtle Beach Rotary recently celebrated the change of seasons with a fall outing held at Top Golf. Under the direction of Jamie Croland, members and guests enjoyed an evening of golf, good food, and fellowship. “Our outings provide an opportunity for Rotarians to connect outside the confines of our weekly meetings. It’s always fun to meet our members and their significant others, and to catch up on busy lives,” said Don Hovis, President. The venue was so popular it will be considered for future events.
