We were honored to host our District Governor, Pauline Levesque, speak to members at our weekly breakfast meeting held virtually. Pauline has filled numerous leadership roles in her 33 years as a Rotarian, from 2017 Distinguished Member, 2008 Rotarian of the Year, and served as Club President in Connecticut before relocating to Myrtle Beach. Those who know her have proudly given her the nickname the "Everyday Philanthropist". The motto that she selected for the District this year pre-COVID is "Increase the Ability to Adapt". How fitting!!!! The goal is to build a culture and willingness that promotes innovation and an increased ability to take risks. The District is holding virtual events for members to be involved from CWRAP on FaceBook, Happy Hours, and District meetings.
Member Mark Smith kicked off the meeting by telling the Club about himself and what he values. Mark has been a member of Rotary for 20 years and grew up in modest means in Bamburg, SC. He had an opportunity to buy-in to the family funeral home business and also has chosen a life of service through politics.
