What a great way to ring in the New Year with a new member induction!  RCSE welcomed Katie Gingrich to the club this past Friday - congratulations Katie!  President Laura Lane McKinnon asked everyone to mark their calendars for Saturday, February 26th, for the Annual RCSE Oyster Roast.  Gordon Matthews has generously offered to host the event at his home on Tybee Island.  More information about the oyster roast will be forthcoming within the next few weeks.  Once all Rotary business items were discussed, Laura Lane introduced our speaker for the day, Jamey Espina.  
It was a great final meeting of 2021 with Monty Jones giving the club an update on the new Enmarket Arena!  Cindy Kelley was acting President for our meeting and thanked everyone who was able to participate in the December Social and Service Project of caroling to those who live in the Tiny House Project.  Once all business items were discussed, Monty filled us in on all that is happening with the new arena.  
It was a great day for Holiday cheer at RCSE!  President Laura Lane McKinnon reminded members of the Holiday party on Wednesday, December 8th.  Information about the event will be emailed before the party.  Once all Rotary business items were discussed, Laura Lane introduced our speakers for the day - Katy Spencer with Savannah VOICE Festival and musicians Sarah and Justin. 
 
Katy began by giving a brief talk about the Savannah VOICE Festival which is a training program for artists.  In addition to training, SVF also does community outreach.  Recently, they partnered with local school to have students create an opera based on what happens to Cinderella after she gets married.  They also work with Deep and Voices That Heal.  They had to do programs virtually during the pandemic and will continue to offer some virtual programming in the future.  The Savannah VOICE Festival will be making an exciting announcement in January about their upcoming summer programs so stay tuned!  After Katy talked, the club was then serenaded by Sarah with Justin accompanying her on the keyboard with Holiday carols such as Let It Snow and a musical theatre song.  
This past Friday, President Laura Lane McKinnon thanked all those members who participated in the Thanksgiving card service project with Senior Citizens, Inc.  RCSE touched the lives of 228 seniors with our cards!  Laura Lane also reminded everyone of the upcoming Holiday Social on Wednesday, December 8th.  More details about the event will be forthcoming.  Once all Rotary business items were discussed, fellow Rotarian Leslie Mattingly spoke to the club about the incredibly successful global grant  project she's been a part of in Puerto Rico.
