I am originally from Michigan and moved here in 2010. My wife Jill and I have been married for 10 years and have 3 wonderful children – Lilly (8), Molly (4), and Noah (8 months). I joined the Rotary Club of Carolina Forest in July of 2011 and I served as the Membership Chair for 2 years prior to becoming the President Elect last year. I thoroughly enjoy serving my community and am honored to be the President of this terrific club.

On August 15th from 7:30AM until 9:30AM, the Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise helped 64 Waccamaw Elementary students pick out new shoes so they can start the new school year on the right foot. The Happy Feet project is one of three elementary school support programs funded and administered by the club. The other two, Warm Bodies and P Cubed: Pads, Papebors, Pencils for Pupils, also help assist children identified by classroom teachers and administrators. Each year, the club spends over $5,000 on the three projects, which support both Waccamaw Elementary and Carolina Forest Elementary.
The Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise is a Flex Club. Having the Flex Club status allows our club to actively participate in community events on a biweekly basis. The 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month are breakfast meetings to share ideas and fellowship. The other weeks are held at civic events to assist and spread Rotarian efforts throughout the community. The club meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 7:00AM at Beef O’Brady’s in the Carolina Forest Kroger Shopping Center. New or prospective members are always welcome at our breakfast meeting. Come and learn of the many service projects provided by our dynamic club in behalf of “Service Above Self” to our community and its citizens of all ages.
