The Rotary of Daniel Island kicked off 2021 with a meeting Jan. 6 to discuss the organizations for 2021.
On January 13, 2021, Wes Lyon, co-owner of Allegiance Flag Supply, spoke at the weekly breakfast meeting held virtually and in person, discussing how he started his business making high quality American flags completely made in the USA.
Erin Dudley, community services manager for DI Development Company, shared with members at the Jan. 20 meeting held virtually, the progress being made at Point Hope, the master planned development on the Cainhoy peninsula. This historic, beautiful area embraces outdoor living, he told attendees.
The Daniel Island Speaker Series, of which the Rotary Club is a sponsor, continued Jan. 27.
