The Rotary Club of Daniel Island welcomed District 7770 District Governor Gary Bradham to their August 23rd weekly breakfast meeting. Gary’s wife of 44 years, Susan, was also in attendance. Gary and Susan are members of the Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach. Before Gary discussed his goals and priorities of the District, the Ace of Spades was held with members and guests having the opportunity to purchase tickets to win money, or half the pot, should they draw the Ace of Spades from a deck of cards. The other half of the pot is given to Polio Plus. Each week, five tickets are pulled at random with the pot being the total amount of tickets purchased. If no one draws the Ace of Spades, the pot is carried over to the following week and continues to grow until the Ace of Spades is pulled. This week’s pot was a carryover of five weeks totaling $504. Susan was one of the five lucky tickets pulled by Gary as our guest. Guess what? Susan pulled the Ace of Spades!!! Susan, putting Service Above Self, immediately offered her winnings be donated to Polio. That is $504 going to Polio Plus. Thank you Susan!!

Assistant District Governor Clinton Dunn introduced Gary. He received some applause from the Citadel alums in attendance when he announced his undergraduate degree from The Citadel. It is worth noting that Gary holds an MBA from La Tech University and a National Security and Logistics degree from the Industrial Collage of the Armed Forces having retired as full Colonel after 25 years of service in the Air Force. The visit was Gary’s 34th of 79 Club visits in District 7770 with Susan attending almost all the visits. We are thankful for Gary’s time and leadership of District 7770.
