The end of this Rotary year is upon us and we can look back at our accomplishments and look forward to a new year…and feel good about where we are as a club. This has been a good year for us. We are pleased to have added 10 members this year. We’ve had successful fund-raisers and service projects, ending the year with a very successful Bluffton Village Festival! We conducted a member satisfaction survey and made changes based on what you told us. We conducted a community needs assessment survey and identified some new and ongoing needs in the community, plus more opportunities for hands-on projects; this effort will be on-going. We’ve helped organizations and individuals and made a difference in the lives of many. We hosted Maud as our inbound student this year. We also had fun with social projects and celebrations: the sandbar party, bowling, holiday party, 25th anniversary celebration….and last, the upcoming Charter Night, our celebration of the year ending! Charter Night is for all members and we hope you will come out for the fun…an old-fashioned pig pickin’ at the Bluffton Chamber Headquarters on July 20, from 7:00 – 10:00pm....not to be missed!

Thanks to all of you for making our Bluffton Rotary Club so special and we look forward to another great year with Patrick and his board leading us next year!

Yours in Rotary,
