It was a great meeting on Friday with many visiting Rotarians and guests!  We had visitors all the way from Serbia and a few GRSP (Georgia Rotary Student Program) students in attendance as well!  Additionally, there was a new member induction - Amanda Lolik-Grainger.  Welcome to the club, Amanda!  President Jason Jones asked members to write down a charity that they would like to see receive $1000 from the money raised through Raffle and Happy.  The Dive Savannah was the winner!  The Dive Savannah strives to support the Savannah community through several outreach initiatives such as operating an incoming day center for the homeless, providing food and necessities to four homeless camps, and helping struggling veterans.  Once all Rotary business items were discussed, Bob Ohrablo with the Savannah Ghost Pirates spoke about Savannah' new hockey team!

A fellow Rotarian from Jacksonville, Bob gave us an overview of how the club system functions.  The Ghost Pirates will be in the ECHL league.  The games will be played in the new Enmark Arena with the spectator capacity for a hockey game being 7000-7500.  There are many different ticketing options such as individual, corporate sponsorships, and season ticket holders.  Bob invited everyone to come have a great time starting in October for the pre-season games and then through April for the regular season. An entertaining speaker, we appreciated Bob talking with us.  To learn more about the ice hockey team, please visit
