At the Jan. 17 meeting of the Daniel Island Rotary Club, immediate past president Gray Ives (shown here) shared the news that the club had earned the distinguished “Presidential Citation Award” for 2016-17! The club is one of only four clubs to win the honor out of 80 clubs in District 7770. In order to earn this distinguished award, the club had to meet a number of goals in several areas, including membership attraction and engagement, foundation giving, online tool adoption, humanitarian service, new generations and public image. “It was truly a successful year put together by Past President Gray, his board, and the rest of the club that chipped in and made it all possible,” said Rotarian Derek Epperson. “Way to go everyone!”
