At our December 6th meeting, we were honored to have Stephanie M. Kelley, Executive Director at East Cooper Community Outreach, or ECCO as many people know it by, speak to our club. Stephanie gave a very informative presentation about the organization, giving everyone a reminder that not only do they act as a food bank and a place for basic needs (clothing, household furnishings, etc.), for those in need, but also a place for individuals to receive assistance with financial aid, dental/medical care, prescriptions, counseling, and educational opportunities just to name a few. The Rotary Club of Daniel Island is very proud to have a mutual partnership with ECCO, working with them on various projects as well as them being a beneficiary from our Duck Race in years past.

At the club social on Tuesday, September 26th, the club recognized Chris Hargrove with the “Service Above Self” Award. Ms. Hargrove risked her own life when she ran into a neighbors burning home to save her dog. Ms. Hargrove’s neighbor was away on business and she knew that the dog was home alone. Although in her late 80’s, she never thought twice about the risk to her own life.  The Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo was honored to present as a token of our appreciation to Ms. Hargrove a plaque and a gift card to Firehouse Subs, she certainly exemplifies our motto “service above self”.
