In support of the District 7770 Rotary Service Day concept the East Cooper Rotary Breakfast Club will have our yearly Service Day on Monday, March 2nd at St. James Santee elementary school (located between Awendaw and McClellanville). The school principal, LaCarma McMillan, is excited to have us for a day and is looking forward to see how many projects we can get done for the day.

We will have a number of projects going on (painting accent walls in the library, constructing garden boxes for the kids, painting games like hop scotch on sidewalks, landscaping around outdoor class rooms, building / replacing bird boxes on school grounds, resurfacing picnic tables, other projects pending) which will require the full participation of the club.  Please bring your spouse or family member(s) so they all can share in the spirit of Rotary Service Day.   This is our main service project of the year so the expectation is that we have full club participation.  A light lunch will be provided.

Afterwards, we will have an appreciation cookout hosted by the family of Tripp Hoover at 1464 Lieben Road in Mount Pleasant.  This should be on the way home for most people.

Signup sheets will be at the Rotary meeting February 19th and after that you will need to email Mike Bloser.

East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club is pleased to announce that it raised $32,000 from the 2nd Annual Speakeasy… Prohibition with a Cause! The funds will be donated to Rotary charities, My Sister’s House, and East Cooper Community Outreach. This year’s event took place on Saturday, Oct. 21st at the Sweetgrass Event Center in Mount Pleasant. Tripp Hoover was the winner of the raffle drawing in which he opted to receive the $2000 cash reward. Many flappers and gangstas donned their Zoot suits and pearls to dance the night with the Charleston Swing Dance Association. Games, auction items, and the grand prize raffle of a trip to the Firefly Sunset Resort in Abacos, Bahamas all played roles in raising the funds for charity. Thank you to all who attended, volunteers, and our charity partners for making this event such a success!

Sorry to say that the social planned for Tuesday Oct. 17th at The Crescent Olive has been canceled due to low number of interest. Members were asked to RSVP and the shop needed at least 10 people to confirm.  Thank you to Sully Recine for taking her time to organize.
