The Simpsonville Rotary club held a ribbon cutting ceremony today to celebrate the club’s new meeting space. President Marti Stegall held the honor of cutting the ribbon after the club’s weekly Wednesday meeting.
When you hear about Rotary, many think “oh, yeah; it’s that service club that meets every week” but we are oh, so much more than that. The Rotary Club of Simpsonville is a people organization focused on serving others. Whether it’s through an international endeavor like eradicating polio across the globe or bringing clean water to impoverished countries, or if it’s through a local project such as providing dictionaries to all of the 3rd grade students in the public schools in Simpsonville or putting flags on the graves of our veterans on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, our Rotary Club delights in working together to serve others. While we do meet each week on Wednesdays at 12:15 pm, our club members enjoy coming together for the fellowship and camaraderie. And as one of our club members always says, “You have to each lunch somewhere, so it might as well be at Rotary!” While we love our new space, we know it really doesn’t matter where we meet because it’s the people that we see each week that’s most important. Rotary is open to anyone who has a heart for others, likes to laugh, and enjoys serving the community! said Stegall.
Several other Rotarians were honored today:
Rick Moore and Darryl Imperati each received Distinguished Leadership Awards.
Richey Causey was awarded Rotarian of The Year.
