Brandon’s Roaches Service Team will host a Winter Soiree Thursday, February 16th at 6:00 pm at the home of Charles and Jody Muldrow.
This is an opportunity for us to connect in a more intimate and casual setting as a small group and get to know one another better, and an opportunity to invite a potential Rotary member.  And of course spouses are invited.
Charles will provide wine and beer, and Jody is already planning some heavy hors d’oeuvres. You are welcome to bring something, but it is not required.  Just let Charles know in that regard.  Also let him know if you are a beer drinker, a wine drinker, or something lighter.
So please confirm your attendance so that Charles can get a head count.  IF you have a potential member that you would like to invite but haven’t yet, now is the time to ask. You may RSVP for the unknown guest as Tentative.
Attached is a map to the Muldrow house, located at 272 Bampfield Drive in Hobcaw Point. 2nd house on right on Bampfield – Green board and batten siding.

The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will go on a field trip Tuesday, January 10, 2017 to tour Water Missions International.  The production facility is located on the old Navy Base at 1150 Kinzer Street, Bldg. 1605 North Charleston, SC 29405.  The meeting will start promptly at 7:30 a.m., so please account for traffic on I-526.

In 1998, our founders, Molly and George Greene, were operating an environmental engineering company in Charleston, South Carolina when they heard about the devastation in Honduras caused by Hurricane Mitch. After receiving a request for multiple water treatment systems in Honduras, and being unable to find existing systems that would work, George and his team of engineers took action to build such a system – and thus the idea for Water Missions International was born.

When the Greenes arrived in Honduras, they were shocked by what they found. The river that flowed through a nearby village was the color of chocolate milk, deep brown with toxins, bacteria and hopelessness. The residents of the village referred to it as the “River of Death” – no one survived once they drank from that river. As one of the newly built water systems became operational, the local villagers were still terrified to drink any water from the river – whether it was clear or not. So Molly and George placed their own lips to the hose and drank the newly purified water. With that action, Molly and George bridged the final gap and the villagers swarmed forward to drink the water.

In the aftermath of their Honduras trip, Molly and George discovered the sad truth about the global water crisis – that billions are forced to drink dirty water every day. In 2001, the Greenes took action to combat this reality and founded Water Mission.

The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary members put their amazing painting talents to work on November 19th as they gathered to help Habitat for Humanity. It took everybody’s hard work to put the first coat on the outside walls. The Rotarians were rewarded with a beautiful day and the feeling of accomplishment as they helped a family get their first home.

We need your help!

On November 19th the East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will partner with the East Cooper Habitat for Humanity to help Lavinia, her daughter Robin, and her two grandkids build their first home.
We will need 15 volunteers to help with the projects on this third home in the Theodore road community. Our team was one of the first to work on this project over a year ago when we first installed the stilt fence around the whole property. Now due in part to our handy work over six separate workdays, two families have a house they can be proud to call home.
Don’t miss your opportunity to help a family in need. The build on this house started in the summer so we will have plenty of interesting tasks for all who come. The weather will be beautiful and your heart will be full after you put in some work for a family in need.
Please join us on November 19th at 8:30 am. The address is 981 Theodore Road, Awendaw, SC.
