Lynn Campbell suprised Beverly Coates with the honor of a Paul Harris Fellow at the weekly meeting of The Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo on  February 11, 2105.  Lynn recognized Beverly’s long time work in the community particularly for her work with Carolina Concerns of Police Survivors. 

Carolina C.O.P.S. works hard to help rebuild the shattered lives of law enforcement families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty.   They provide support and information to police survivors and their agencies. Survivors never “get over” their loved one’s death, but in time learn to put the love in a special place and move forward.

The road of grief can be very difficult and lonely. Carolina C.O.P.S. seeks to lessen the confusion and pain that a survivor will encounter, and its officers are available 24/7 to provide whatever support they can to South Carolina Surviving families.  Ms Beverly is a Surviving Mother of South Carolina Highway Patrol-ACE Team Trooper Mark Coates.  We thank her for her service and dedication to this worthy cause.  If you would like to learn more about C.O.P.S or to make a donation to help aid their hard work please visit carolinacops.org

Adopt-A-Highway Clean up by The Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo Members February 7th

The Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo is actively involved in Adopt-A-Highway program in the Midlands.

Through the Adopt-A-Highway and Adopt-A-Street programs, caring citizens take part in preserving and maintaining streets throughout the Midlands. A wide range of community organizations, like civic groups, businesses, schools, and churches, adopt sections of road in or near their communities and remove litter from those segments at least four times a year for two years.

The benefits are significant. First, the program serves as an educational tool against littering and establishes stewardship of public lands. Secondly, the program helps advance tourism, development and quality of life for all of our citizens by improving the appearance of our area. Finally, the program saves taxpayer dollars by performing a valuable public service on a volunteer basis.

Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust is a project of the Rotary Clubs in the Southeast.  C.A.R.T. Fund was founded by South Carolina Rotarians in 1995 as a way to raise money for this ongoing fight.  At each meeting we empty our pockets of loose change to go towards our fundraising goals.  Over 4 million dollars in grant money has been awarded during the 29 years history of these efforts.  The C.A.R.T. fund provides dollars for innovative research to fight Alzheimer’s disease.  100% of all funds go to Alzheimer Disease Research.

The Lake Murray-Irmo Rotary Club has taken C.A.R.T. Fund bucket fundraising to a new level.    This year we have begun placing the C.A.R.T. fund buckets into local businesses to extend our reach in the community and increase awareness of Alzheimer Disease research.   On November 12th, club President Stan Bugner and club Administrator Jacq Buck presented the idea to the Irmo Chamber of Commerce.   Chamber members emptied their pockets of loose change during the meeting and multiple businesses took C.A.R.T. Fund Buckets to display.  If you are interested in having a C.A.R.T. fund bucket on display at your local business feel free to use our flyers below and ask for a bucket.  Every bit of change makes a difference.
