Announcements:
 
NEXT WEEK - Tuesday November 23, there is NO MEETING at 8:00am.  That day we will deliver 50 Thanksgiving food baskets.  Meet at Piggly Wiggly in Coligny at 4:00 pm to pick up baskets and assignments.  There will be a social after basket delivery at Taste of Europe located in the Northridge shopping center. The club will furnish food and there will be a cash bar.  Drawing of the raffle ticket winners will take place at this gathering.
 
Dick Storm reported that he and Sonny Huntley attended a meeting relating to our mentoring project at the school.  He feels that there is a problem with student proficiency. The fact that at this time of the school year there is no math or science teachers yet is contributory to the problem. If you are interested in mentoring students and making a difference, contact Dick.
 
The District All Club Conference, held in Hilton Head Island  is in March and Kristin asked the membership who was planning to go.  Kristin will be giving a guestimate of how many will go.
 
The Christmas Party will be December 4 at Spanish Wells Club.  It will include tasty game selections from hunter Jacob Hunt as well as traditional choices.  
 
Sergeant at Arms Suzi Oliver collected Happy $$
 
Speaker:
 
Michael Beaumont, Executive Director presented information about the  Live Oak Performing Arts Center.  He moved to the LowCountry in 2008 and is also the lead pastor at Live Oak Christian Church.
The mission of the Live Oak Performing Arts Center is to "bring people together through inspiration and entertainment. He showed a video giving an over view of the Center which is currently in the "permitting stage" with the Town of Bluffton.  Drawings are done.  It will be an 18,000 square foot facility with seating for 400 and full theatrical capability.  The Live Oak Church envisions the facility as a gift to the community, with the building to be used by the church and for theatrical and other community events.  They would like to have 10 to 12 non church events scheduled per month.  It is not an equity based theater and it does not want to compete with the Arts Center or other theaters in the area.  The Church owns the building and another organization that the church does not have authority over will be scheduling the community use of the center.  The Building will cost about 6.5 million. The church is going to invest 1.5 million and finance 2 to 3 million.  The remaining 2 to 3 million will hopefully be public funds.  
 
 
Founders Night was held Saturday June 19 at Spring Lake Pavilion.  It was a wonderful evening of food, fun and fellowship.  Thank you Past President Steve Stauffer for planning a wonderful event.  President Lynn King announced the VLR Rotarian of the Year award.  John Farrenkopf was the recipient in recognition of his exemplary contributions to the club, especially during the past COVID year.  His efforts were above and beyond and all members congratulate and celebrate John for his contributions.
 
Paul Harris Fellow awards were presented to Suzi Oliver, Jacob Hunt, Lynn King, and Nancy Riedel.  There is another PHF recognition which will be made in the future.   Susanna Cook, General Manager of Palmera Inn & Suites was on hand with her husband David and she was recognized for her support in helping us get back to regular club meetings.
Outgoing board members Cory Malphrus and Steve Stauffer were thanked for their service.  
President Lynn presented  Presidential Spirit of Service awards to John Cunningham and Jon Eggert for their contributions to the club.
Kristin Keller, President 2021-22 addressed the gathering and introduced the board.
