Our very own Rotarian, Mike Raymond, in his capacity as board member for the Bluffton Township Fire District, spoke to the club last week about our top tier (ISO Rating: 2) local fire district, comprising of 60,000 homes and 8 fire stations with one on the way. Thank you, Mike!!! To learn more about the fire district as well as their goals and strategic future plans, click here: https://www.blufftonfd.com

A big thank you also to those who participated in the Rum Cake Cupcake Auction last week, which raised funds for Rise Against Hunger and feed the hungry! We raised $2,080 from the auction, including matching funds! And a special thanks to our auctioneer, Steve Miller, who did a stupendous job with the bidding! Please don't forget that Dot Jeger (pictured below) will be available tomorrow to collect any IOU funds.

PRESIDENT'S PEN:
Wow! I can’t believe 7 months have passed since I became president! Time flies when you are having fun and what a great year we have had thus far. We started off our Rotary year with a hurricane evacuation, the last of a trend we hope, but this led us to donate to a wonderful organization called Shelter Box. Good things can come out of tough situations! As always, the annual Arts & Seafood Festival was a tremendous success and we had super volunteer participation. This year we initiated a very worthwhile international project in Ocoto Alto, Peru providing sanitation relief to a community desperately in need. We are also spearheading a local meal packaging event that will distribute 1,000,000 meals internationally from District 7770, which our area clubs will be donating 85,000 of these meals, which is amazing. 
Our activities this past Christmas season would have made Jacob Marley’s ghost jump for joy! Our projects exemplify the commitment and sacrifices joyfully performed by members who genuinely believe in the motto, “Service above Self.” Our club is an example of how “many hands make light work” and there is no “I in team.” The Bluffton Rotary Oyster Roast at the Bluffton Oyster Factory Park this last weekend was a huge success and a fun time for Rotarians and the community alike. Happy Feet is being re- invented this year with some exciting changes and a new location, the Bluffton Rotary Center! More projects to look forward to include: bagging oyster shells, building oyster reefs, the Special Olympics and of course Mayfest. We will have accomplished a lot this year as a club and we should be very proud. As your president, I would like to thank you for helping to make our community, our country and our world a better place.

David Hussey
