Welcome to Lowcountry Rotary Club!

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry is known as the little club that could. Although a small club we are very active in the community giving our time and funds we raise to local non-profit organizations. We gave over $30,000 in the 2011/2012 year to local non-profits. We have also applied for and received Rotary Simplified Grants for such things as the “Good Neighbor” Free Clinic and training materials for Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity as well as recently for the Beaufort County 6th Graders Anti-Bully Program materials.  We also cook burgers and hot dogs twice a year for the Hunting Island Beach Sweep volunteers.
 
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
 
 

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry partnered with Beaufort Country School District who worked with Beaufort High’s Performing Arts Theatre Group to put on an assembly that every 6th grader in Beaufort County was invited to attend.  Beaufort Middle, Lady’s Island Middle Robert Small’s Middle and Whale Branch Middle Schools all attend presentations at Beaufort High’s Performing Arts Center.  The Theatre Group put on thought-provoking skits and involved the students and the teachers. Beaufort High’s Theatre Group and Rotary Club of the Lowcountry then traveled to Bluffton Middle and Hilton Head Island Middle to put on the same presentation.  The teachers were in attendance at the assembly as well since they are seeing some of these bullying behaviors taking place but unaware of the really harm being caused and may be turning a blind eye to the situation. The program was designed for the teachers to take action, let the victim know they don’t have to tolerate being treated this way, encourage bystanders who see something to say something and to let the bully’s know that this sort of behavior is not to be tolerated.

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry distributed anti-bullying activity books and bookmarks to each student as they exited the assembly.  The school district also had the Rotarians distribute arm bands that had an anti-bullying message and telephone number listed in case they wanted to speak with someone outside their school.

Last year, the drama group performed in front of all the 6th graders in the entire school district, at the Rotary District 7770 Conference in Myrtle Beach, and at the Zone 33 Rotary Peace Symposium in North Carolina.

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry celebrated the beginning of the Labor Day weekend by hosting an at the Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club.  In attendance were club members, past members, friends of the club and potential members for a fun-filled evening of ice cream and swimming
 
 
Once a month the Lowcountry Rotary, partnering with the Interact Club of Beaufort High School, cleans up a section of Sea Island Parkway and Youmans Road near the two entrances to the school.  We normally schedule this on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 8:30 AM during the school year and 8:00 AM durng the summer months.  We meet at the Seaside Vineyard Church parking lot (the former Lady's Island Cinema).
