Carolina Sportscare

Jack Cunningham, Chuck Ingle and Mike Konoza.

Carolina SportsCare, founded in 2000, has been a community steward since opening their doors.  The clinic, managed by the 4 partners, Mike Konoza, Kevin Ennis, Jim Denton, and Kevin Green is actively involved in not only in rehabilitation wellness, but also the community wellness through promoting a healthy lifestyle that incorporates the mind, body, and spirit.

They are committed to keeping you in your game by treating sports injuries, offering personal training, fitness and wellness. The Certified Athletic Trainers from Carolina SportsCare have been providing care at our local high schools and middle schools for 18 years!

Carolina SportsCare was presented the Annual Sea Island Community Citizen Award for embracing high standards of excellence in the treatment of their patients, as well as their commitment to volunteerism here in our community.

“Our Sea Island Rotary Club chose Mike Konoza for its annual award because of his strong commitment to community” said Dr. Chuck Ingle, President of Sea Island Rotary.

Basic education and literacy is one of Rotary’s six areas of focus.

We know that basic education and literacy are essential for reducing poverty, improving health, encouraging community and economic development, and promoting peace. Consider these facts:

If all women completed primary education, there would be 66% fewer maternal deaths.

  1. A child born to a mother who can read is 50% more likely to survive past the age of five.
  2. If all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty, which would be equivalent to a 12% cut in world poverty.

More than a century after Paul Harris and his colleagues chartered the club that eventually led to Rotary International, Rotarians continue to take pride in their history. In honor of that first club, Rotarians have preserved its original meeting place, Room 711 in Chicago’s Unity Building, by re-creating the office as it existed in 1905. For several years, the Paul Harris 711 Club maintained the room as a shrine for visiting Rotarians. In 1989, when the building was scheduled to be demolished, the club carefully dismantled the office and salvaged the interior, including doors and radiators. In 1993, the RI Board of Directors set aside a permanent home for the restored Room 711 on the 16th floor of RI World Headquarters in nearby Evanston.

Today, 1.2 million Rotarians belong to over 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

Salley.rionPresident Elect-Elect Larry Meisner’s Director position on the board will be open once he officially becomes President-Elect on July 1. Gayle Bowen has been nominated to fill this Director position until the end of the term on June 30, 2014. If anyone else would like to nominate a member to fill this Director position then please let President Elect Mike or myself know before our lunch meeting on May 28th.

Please see Dan Ahern or Bob Gross if you have questions about the blood drive with the Blood Alliance on Thursday, May 30th at the Quality Inn. The blood drive will be going on all day. We want to have a big turnout from our club to show our appreciation for District Governor Ed and to win the contest for giving the most blood of all the area clubs.

We hope everyone can make it to the Installation Banquet on Friday, June 21 at 6pm at Pleasant Point. The sign-up sheet will be going around at meetings over the next few weeks.
