Subject: Sea Island Rotary Club – Shrimp Race 2020 Update & Call For Input
Good Afternoon My Fellow Rotarians,
I hope that my email finds you well and that you had a nice weekend. As we all learn how to navigate though the changing times, our Rotary group is not exempt and has had to learn to adapt as well. After much discussion between our Shrimp Race Committee and the SIRC Board, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Shrimp Race. This is not a settlement that was made lightly and the outcome was determined after several weeks of meetings and discussions. As we move ahead we see this decision as a chance to better our 2021 Shrimp Race, as well as, bring new opportunity for an alternate fundraising event for the fall of 2020.
With that being said, our committee will continue to meet and we welcome all ideas and feedback from our members. There are several ideas for events that could take place in the fall from an Online Fundraising Events to a Golf Tournament. Now, more than ever, our club needs your input as we continue to work towards raising funds that benefit those with needs in our community.
Please feel free to reach out to me via email or phone. Our Fundraising Committee will meet again during the month of August and we would love to have your feedback within the next two weeks. I look forward to hearing from you and building enthusiasm through our member’s involvement. Thanks so much for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
Stay safe and be well.
Anna Pinckney Graham
