Colonel Jay Seward was honored with the 4-way test award on Wednesday, October 18th. He has never missed a meeting even when he is traveling, he still finds a way to attend a Rotary meeting in that area. He has been our clubs secretary for as long as anyone can remember. He fills in as sergeant at arms when needed. He volunteers for everything our club has.  Colonel Seward surely deserves this award. Congratulation on this great honor.

At the club social on Tuesday, September 26th, the club recognized Chris Hargrove with the “Service Above Self” Award. Ms. Hargrove risked her own life when she ran into a neighbors burning home to save her dog. Ms. Hargrove’s neighbor was away on business and she knew that the dog was home alone. Although in her late 80’s, she never thought twice about the risk to her own life.  The Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo was honored to present as a token of our appreciation to Ms. Hargrove a plaque and a gift card to Firehouse Subs, she certainly exemplifies our motto “service above self”.
