ATTENTION. RLI Goes to the Citadel

District 7770 District Chair Ellison Smith and his committee, Raffia Smith, Julia Boyd, and Angela Black-Drake, provide a very different RLI event for us in Charleston SC on February 24th and 25th. Not only did we have a excellent RLI event at the Citadel on Saturday, but there were a number of other social events, both on Friday and Saturday. The event not only drew 58 Rotarians from both South and North Carolina, but a number of spouses who joined in the fun of visiting the wonderful town of Charleston. Read More.
