A “change of watch” for the Rotary Club of the Lowcountry was held June 26 at the Log Cabin on the Marine Corps Air Station. 

Outgoing Club President Alan Beach inducted incoming Club President Scott Klumb. Change of watch also saw new club board of directors sworn in, new committee chairs announced, as well as perfect attendance awards presented to a number of members. 

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry is the smallest of the three Beaufort clubs but is one of the most active in the community, giving its time and funds to help local nonprofit organizations. The club has raised tens of thousands of dollars, all of which stays in the Beaufort community.

CAPA, CODA, YMCA of Beaufort, Alzheimer’s Family Services of Greater Beaufort and HELP of Beaufort are just a few of the local nonprofits for whom the club has raised money. 

Anti-bully materials for Beaufort County sixth-graders are also donated by the Rotary Club of the Lowcountry. 

The club meets at 7:30 p.m. every Friday morning at at Golden Corral on Robert Smalls Highway. New members are always welcome.
