Our club’s 2018-2019 Rotary Youth Exchange Student, Marie, arrived last week from France! Marie will be turning 17 on August 20th and she will be attending Wando High School. At our club meeting last week, Marie gave us a flag from her Rotary club in France and received our flag. If you see her at a meeting please introduce yourself! Marie loves meeting new people and traveling to new places. She is very active, enjoys shopping, and loves to cook. In France, Marie studies economics and wants to work in international relations. Marie enjoys swimming, gymnastics, and volleyball and she is about to have the best year of her life!

Welcome Marie!

The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will meet Tuesday, August 24th, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. in The Cooper River Room at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park. We are pleased to have David Tirard, District Governor, as our speaker. Breakfast catered by Dish and Design Catering and Events.

David Tirard joined the Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island in 2003. He is a Ten Star Rotarian and holds the Four Avenues of Service Citation. He was elected President in 2011, and he led the club to Large Club of the Year recognition at the District Conference in March 2012. At District level he has served on the Grants Committee since 2010, served as Paul Harris Society Chair since 2013 and as an Assistant Governor from the same year. He holds two Foundation District Service awards, a Distinguished District Service award, and was recognized as District Rotarian of the Year in 2014. He is a Major Donor, Paul Harris Society member and Bequest Society member. David is British by birth, and enjoyed a thirty-three year career with Barclays Bank Plc. Most of his career was spent in the UK, but a tour of duty in Zambia as a bank auditor really opened his eyes to the poverty suffered in a third-world country. (This experience helps fuel his passion for the Rotary Foundation). Upon retirement he came to the United States in 2001, where he met his wife Susan. They moved to Bluffton SC in 2002. She is also a Rotarian, and they enjoy two children and eight grand-children in the USA, and two children and three grand-children in the UK. In the little time they have outside Rotary, they enjoy cooking, gardening and looking after the three Golden Retrievers they have rescued.

The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will meet Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. in The Cooper River Room at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park. We are pleased to hear from fellow Rotarian Sean Glassberg about Racers for Pacers, a non- profit founded by Sean in 2011. Breakfast catered by Dish and Design Catering and Events.

Inspired by Rick and Dick Hoyt, Sean started Racers for Pacers to help Lowcountry kids with disabilities become a part of the vibrant running community in our area. Racers for Pacers currently has over 20 Racers who participate in local road races and run each week with either their parents as Pacers or volunteers from our community.

Sean Glassberg is a Rotarian involved with the Georgetown Rotary Club because he loves driving 40+ miles one way to get from his home in Mount Pleasant to his campus at Horry Georgetown Technical College, where he serves as Director of Faculty Development and teaches English from time to time. He is a proud father of four and husband of one who also coaches his kids in Mt Pleasant Rec Sports programs and runs a side business to provide faculty development for other colleges and universities. Somehow, he finds time to run and train on his own when he is not herding his kids or taking out the garbage.

giorgio

As you all know, East Cooper Breakfast Rotary is hosting a Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) student from Italy this year, Giorgio Cracchiolo from the island of Sicily. He is attending Academic Magnet as a junior and is staying this first semester with the family of an outbound RYE student that attends Academic Magnet.  However, Giorgio needs to find another host family for the Spring semester.  If you or someone you know feels called to host this kind, good-spirited young Italian boy, please contact Wayne Cassaday or Jill Aiken. Giorgio promises to give his host family a great cultural experience from his home country as well through stories and laughter. If you’re a Clemson fan, he loves going to the games.  If you’re Gamecock, then he needs you to bring him over to the other side!
