Jun 022015



The Chicora Rotary Club’s signature fundraising event is Waves of the Future, showcasing Fine Arts talents of children grades K-12th.  This event will raise money for Horry County Schools and the many community service projects Chicora Rotary funds each year.   In connection with this event, we are holding a contest for artwork which will be printed on all the t-shirts and programs sold at the event.  The winner will also be recognized by local media and receive prizes.  At the event we will have artwork on display and encourage the artists to be present and watch the show!  We also plan that the overall winner would attend the event and autograph t-shirts and programs.

Prizes include: $100 prize for the top logo selected in each of our three categories (Elementary, Middle School, High School).  A committee made up of Chicora Rotary members will make the final determination.

The artwork should ideally be designed for 8 ½ x 11 dimensions.  Vertical Logos are preferred.  The t-shirts will be printed in three (3) colors, so a design of three colors would be best.  The name of the event, Waves of the Future, and the Rotary Wheel should be incorporated into the design.  This year the special theme is the mission of Rotary International; the Eradication of Polio worldwide.





Please complete the form below, cut on the line, and tape securely to  the back of your artwork so it can be identified.  The deadline for submission is Feb. 1, 2018.  Please send entries via Inter Office mail to Scott Scrivner.

Good Luck!

Chicora Rotary Service Project

Oct 152014

Our Service Project is scheduled for Saturday, 10/25/14.

The homeowner, Roberta Garris is a single female living on social security disability.  She recently had hip replacement surgery.  She lives alone and during one of the storms this year, a tree limb fell on her house but her homeowner insurance company denied her claim indicating that the roof lacked proper maintenance – had holes and no damage resulted from the tree limb.

Ms. Garris has applied for emergency housing rehab assistance.  Her insurance company notified her that her insurance policy will be cancelled if she does not get her roof repaired by November 13th.  If the Rotary will assist with the removal of the tree limbs, the Bradford Pear tree, trim some other trees and remove the unfinished deck, etc. – this would decrease the cost and time to repair her roof.   Ms. Garris has some other repairs that need to be accomplished but we are addressing the roof replacement first.

This project is located in the Ramsey Acres neighborhood and the address is 1090 Oak Drive.
