President Wayne Bell
Good afternoon Greenwood Rotarians:
This will be my last post to the 'President's Corner' for the 2014-2015 Rotary year. We have achieved many collective Goals that we set back in July 2014. Our Club has raised the bar in several Rotary categories and we set a few records that will be hard to top.....we worked hard but we had a ton of Fun.
YOU will want to be at our June 23 meeting to see and review many of the highlights of the past 12 months of the Greenwood Rotary Club. I invite you to personally call one of your Rotary 'brothers' and 'sisters' and encourage them to join us for this exciting meeting next week.
When you enter the main dining area of the American Legion next Tuesday you will look up on the big screen and see nearly 100 pictures of our members being presented with pins and awards. The background music will enhance the events that we participated in as we take you on a trip down memory lane. Our Oyster Roast and Golf tournament pictures will unfold in vivid color and you will experience the excitement of our Club members displaying the true meaning of " Service Above Self " !!
We will hear very brief presentations from 8 of the organizations that received funds from our Club this past year. You will take great pleasure in hearing the stories of how these groups applied these funds to help so many of the young people in the Lakelands Area. They will fill you with a sense of PRIDE knowing that YOU had a direct hand in helping these organizations impact the lives of so many young Americans in and around Greenwood County.
There will be several Club members that will be recognized for sponsoring new members into our club ranks this past year. It is always amazing to witness what can happen in an organization when a few people decide to expand the footprint of their Club. Come and see what can be accomplished when you focus on a poster that has the number " 10 " embedded on it .....it can be magical !!
It has been my pleasure to serve you as your President .....
