Good afternoon Greenwood Rotarians:
 
 
I hope you were in attendance at our May 12 Rotary meeting when DG Tom Faulkner and AG Andrew Hodges were our guests. As you know, our Club was presented the Presidential Citation for 2014-2015. We were recognized for increasing our Net New Membership, enhancing our service impact in Greenwood and expanding our Network throughout District 7750. As a special bonus our Interact Club at Greenwood High School was also awarded the Presidential Citation for this Service Year. A Special Thanks goes out to Rotarian Rodney Stone who provides direct oversight and Leadership to this dynamic group of future Rotarians !
 
Our next and final achievement for the year will be qualifying for the Governor's Excellence Award. Your Greenwood Rotary Club has an excellent shot at achieving the GOLD LEVEL with over 500 points. We accumulate points in the four major areas of Membership, Foundation, Club Administration and Public Relations. We are competing with 53 other Clubs in District 7750. Yes, we do have an opportunity to be selected 'ROTARY CLUB OF THE YEAR' .....it's the 4th Quarter and we are pressing forward !!
 
If you go to the American Legion this Tuesday May 26 you will lonely and food will be scarce. Our next meeting is our annual 'Rural Urban Day'. You need to come to the Farmer's Market next to the old Civic Center on Hwy 72 [that is now being taken down]. Powell Smith, a vegetable specialist with the Clemson Extension Service, will be our guest speaker. He is driving up from Columbia to educate us on the value of vegetables to the State of South Carolina. A Bar BQ and Chicken plate will have your name on it, so I hope to see all of you this Tuesday at 12:30 pm.
 
 
We continue to 'Light it Up' .......

Nigerian donor promotes Rotary’s role as a player for peace
