There will be a board meeting on Thursday, January 18th at 7:30.
On Wednesday, October 18th our club was honored to have District Governor Gary Bradham as our speaker. He spoke to us about things happening in our rotary district as well as rotary as a whole. He drove home the point of how important ending polio is and what a challenge is it going to be. We were so happy to have him speak. We had an awesome turn-out! Thanks to everyone who made it!
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”.
On Wednesday, September 6th we were honored to have Sheriff Leon Lott speak to our club. He talked to us about RCSD being on the TV show Live P.D. He spoke about how this would be the future of law enforcement 5-10 years from now. Then he spoke about how stealing would not be tolerated in Richland County. He spoke a couple cases involving shop lifting and what RCSD is doing to stop it. Thanks for coming and speaking to us Sheriff Lott is was great to hear all the thing RCSD is doing.
