A Great Day at the Duncan SC RLI !

The Spring District 7750 RLI was conducted on Pi Day, March 14, 2015, at the Tyger River Campus of Spartanburg Community College. Attendance was lower than normal, as many District Rotarians felt compelled to celebrate this once in a century date, which was also Albert Einstein’s 136th Birthday. In fact, at 9:26 AM and 53 seconds, there were another five digits of this famous irrational number, which never ends and never has a repeating pattern. 3.141592653. Wow.

Fortunately, none of the 17 enthusiastic participants and six inspiring faculty members felt compelled to celebrate Pi Day until the end of the day. And six new RLI graduates had additional reason to celebrate. The graduates are:
· David Brenner, Greenville Breakfast Club
· Norman Bunn, Rotary Club of Mauldin
· Shalonda Calhoun, Emerald City Rotary Club
· Therese Moore, Emerald City Rotary Club
· Lance Young, Greenville Evening Club and 7750 District Governor Nominee

Thanks to regional coordinator Bill Parker and to faculty members Lorraine Angelino, Becky Faulkner, Gene Moorhead, Georgia Oakes, Rick Snider and David Howard for a great event. Submitted by George Fletcher, D7750 District RLI Chair

Graduates & Staff (L to R): Bill Parker (staff), George Fletcher (staff), David Brenner, Norman Bunn, Therese Moore, Shalonda Calhoun, Lance Young, DG Tom Faulkner. DGN Lance Young and Regional Coordinator Bill Parker are shameless promoting the forthcoming Greenville Evening Duck Derby. Tom is displaying the $100 Emerald City raffle ticket which he just purchased. The Four Way Test says that he will have to report the Chevy Spark on his taxes when he wins.

Emerald City (Greenwood, SC) was well represented with six students and one faculty member. L to R, Prudence Taylor (Part I), Therese Moore (Part III). Les Brown (Part I), Graham Sullivan (Part I), Lorraine Angelino (Facilitator & RLI Board member), Rosemary Bell (Part II) and Shalonda Calhoun (Part III). Thanks, Lorraine.
