President's Page

Thank you for visiting our web site…. It’s a joy to share some information about the Mount Pleasant Rotary Club. As we begin our 41st year (we were organized on June 24, 1977) the tradition of “service above self” continues.  In addition to weekly lunch meetings at the Harbor Breeze Restaurant with informative speakers and opportunities to learn more about our community, our club really does “live” our motto.

Everything our club accomplishes is due to the experience of our committed leaders and the hard work of our members. We are one of the top clubs in our district supporting the Rotary Foundation. Our club fundraiser, The Rotary Soccer Classic is celebrating its 35st anniversary this year. The success of our soccer classic provides us with the funds to support local charities each year, in addition to providing college scholarships. 

Our members give of themselves through programs such as Happy Feet, which provides free shoes for needy school children, and the Dictionary Project, which provides dictionaries to all third graders east of the Cooper. We pick up trash on the highway every quarter, we work on habitat houses, we give funds to continue the fight to eradicate Polio in the world, we support Water Missions, we are involved in youth exchange and our ‘signature’ charity is Backback Buddies which provides food for needy school children on the weekends.

Rotary is many things… fellowship, education, service,… it is local, it is global…. It is truth, fairness and goodwill and better friendships . . . it is definitely ‘beneficial to all concerned”.
If you are looking for an organization that gives you an opportunity to grow as a person while helping others, I invite you to join us for a meeting.

Signed,
