The West Wateree Rotary announces the inaugural Wild Game Dinner and Silent Auction the evening of Saturday, April 5 at Old McCaskill Farm in Rembert to raise money for graduating LEHS seniors. Club President Amy Schofield describes the event as “down-home and delicious,” with wide support from the community. “I’m particularly excited by how we will be showcasing local talent. Hunters in our club provided the game, local musicians will provide the bluegrass, and a wonderful local farm will be providing a great setting and a great cook.”
Since 1990, the West Wateree Rotary Club has been committed to providing scholarships to Lugoff – Elgin High School seniors. Through fundraising efforts of our members, $63,500 in scholarships have been awarded to ninety seven (97) local students. Today, more than ever, obtaining a college degree is challenging. As tuition costs rise and the economy affects more and more families, the West Wateree Rotary Club has committed to providing additional scholarships for the children of our friends and neighbors in Kershaw County. With the Wild Game fundraiser, the club hopes to double the number of scholarships it currently provides.

Sponsors for the dinner include:

AgSouth Farm Credit, Columbia/Camden RV Park, Dr. and Mrs. John Francis Zeedick, Edward Jones Investments, First Citizens Bank, First Community Bank, Fitness Zone, Grady and Associates, Great Southern Homes, Hayes Building and Remodeling, Mid Carolina Credit Union, TriTek First and Security, Upchurch and Jowers and Wateree Animal Hospital.

Tickets are available for purchase at $35/per ticket or $65/per couple. Tickets may be purchased at First Community Bank, Mid Carolina Credit Union or First Citizens Bank in Kershaw County.

The West Wateree and Camden Clubs held a trivia night fundraiser and social on Wednesday, September 18th. Members from each club utilized vast stores of useless knowledge to earn the honor of holding on to a beautiful stuffed squirrel, which functioned as an official trophy for the event. Funds generated through sponsorships and member participation were split between the two clubs.The Camden Club won by one point, ostensibly without any funny business. A rematch will be held in January.
