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”.
