10/15/19: No Meeting
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.
We will have another SI Rotary crew, joined by some of our Interact club members from Battery Creek High School, to do our quarterly litter pick-up on Feb 20th, 2016.
In 1933 Paul Harris gave this speech at the 24th Rotary International Convention. It was heard around the world. Watch this remastered video of his speech.
Just a reminder that our Next Tuesday Meeting will be on July 9th. We will NOT meet on June 25th or July 2nd.
Dear SIR Members:
Thank you to each and every Sea Island Rotarian that has made this Rotary year another successful one. I have truly enjoyed being your President. Thank you for your service above self. I also look forward to passing the gavel on to President Elect Mike and joining the rest of you once again at the tables for lunch.
Congratulations once again to our newest member Tina Gentry. We look forward to having everyone that can make it to our installation banquet this Friday at 6pm at the Pleasant Point Clubhouse on Lady’s Island.
Enjoy Your Day!
Thank you Bob Gross and Dan Ahern for helping make the blood drive a success. I really appreciate all the members and spouses from our club that took the time to donate.
David Zeoli has been proposed for membership in our club. Trash pickup is scheduled for Saturday, June 15 at 8am. Please meet in the Steamers parking lot on Lady’s Island.
We hope most everyone can attend the installation banquet on Friday, June 21 at 6pm at the Pleasant Point clubhouse. We will not have a lunch meeting on Tuesday, June 25
Have a great day!
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.
