Every year the Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo honors a student from school district Lexington/Richland 5 with a scholarship for college, this scholarship is awarded in honor of Dr. Stephen Hefner who is District Five’s SuperIntendendent but also a long-standing Rotarian. Dr. Hefner is asked to choose the awardee and this year’s honoree is Zachary Korchert. Zachary was awarded his scholarship last Wednesday morning at the Rotary Club’s breakfast meeting. Zachary is a student at Irmo High School and the Center for Advanced Technical Studies where he is a part of the Clean Energy Technology program. Zachary was the state science fair winner and will be going to Pittsburgh to compete in the International Science Fair. Zachary plans to attend Presbyterian College.

Our speaker Wednesday, March 21st was our very own “fly boy” Dalton Tresvant. Dalton is an Irmo native and a member of the Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo. He spoke to us this morning about going into his third season with the Columbia Fireflies. He told about different promotional events the park offers during games such as $2 Tuesdays, Wag-Along Wednesdays, and Thirsty Thursday. He also told us about ticket options and group outings. He informed us that the park is opened every day to the public and can also be rented for special events. If you have not been to a Fireflies game or been to Spirit Communication Park you need to check it out this season. Also, you will be in for a treat when you get to see Dalton and the other “fly boys” dance in between the sixth inning. Which he shyly told us how they prepare for that the day of the game.
Our Rotary Golf Tournament will be Tuesday, April 24th. This is our biggest fundraiser so make sure you are asking any and everyone for sponsorship. Please find attached the brochure to help you with this.
