Meeting Recap
6/12/2024

Gordon R. McInally - Rotary International President 2023-2024

Today we had the distinct privilege of hearing from R. Gordon R. McInally - Rotary International President 2023-24 via Zoom!

Educated at the Royal High School in Edinburgh and the University of Dundee, where he earned a graduate degree in dental surgery, and operated his own dental practice in Edinburgh until 2016. He has also served in many important positions: chair of the East of Scotland branch of the British Pedodontics’ Society, as a presbytery elder, chair of the parish congregational board, and commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

He first joined Rotary in 1984 at the age of 26 and is a member of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry. Mr. McInally previously served as president and vice president of Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI). He is a patron of the nonprofits Hope and Homes for Children and Trade-Aid, and an ambassador for Bipolar UK. He enjoys rugby, good food and wine, and the traditional Scottish craft of stick dressing (making walking sticks).

He and his spouse Heather are Paul Harris Fellows, Major Donors, Benefactors of The Rotary Foundation, and members of the Bequest Society.

Today he shared a message of hope and peace for the world at a time when we see so much wrong. We as individuals have the power of life and death if we step forward to make a difference for others- be it curing polio, providing education, the gift of sight, or helping to create peace in nations. That is the magic of Rotary and a message of hope for the future.

His presidency is dedicated to making the world better for his granddaughters and all children to live and thrive.

Community Service

Volunteering at Camp Happy Days

May 12, 2024

Camp Happy Days (their mission is to work with children that have or have had childhood cancer) has a partner relationship with MUSC Childrens Hospital’s oncology department. MUSC brings back former patients in varied intervals for testing, chemo and other work. They are at the clinic all day, so CHD has worked with them to provide snacks and activity bags to help keep them occupied and fed throughout the day. Our Rotary Club (YOUR $) provided them with a $1000 grant which in turn allowed them to purchase the materials for the snacks and activity bags. Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Daniel Island then helped to pack the bags. Our support will provide 144 patients with snacks and activities which will meet the program’s needs over the next 6 months.

Members of our Club are busy this summer working on two homes in the Cainhoy area, a mobile home in need of significant repairs just to remain inhabitable and a second home in need of A/C work in this hot weather. Thanks to Dr. Bill and the entire team, changing lives through your labors; “service above self” is alive and well!

Chip Law, Incoming President Visits MUSC Pediatrics

June 21, 2024

Incoming President Chip Law met with medical staff and Camp Happy Days Program team to deliver snacks and activity bags for children receiving day-log treatment and evaluation. But Chip says the real star of the show is Cher, who has devoted many dog years to helping children in need. RCDI donated the funds for the activity bags, while many DI Rotarians participated in their preparation.
