We enjoyed a busy meeting this week! First, we welcomed our newest RCSE member, Dr. Roy Maynard, to the club!  Next, President Andrew Cosey presented a contribution from the club to Mr. Joe Marchese for the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society.  Finally, Andrew reminded all members of the upcoming June Social and Service Projects.  Once all Rotary business items were complete, Kim Campbell introduced our speaker for the day, Kimberly Ergul, who shared with us her Kindness Initiative.   
Kimberly was inspired to create a kindness symbol after walking down a flag lined street in Maine.  When designing her image, she was very careful with the colors and images that she picked.  Light blue represents unity, white represents harmony, the heart represents love, and the olive branch is the international symbol of peace.  After designing her image, she had it trademarked which took many years.  Her goal with the Kindness Initiative is to be in schools and maybe even partner with the Girls Scouts!  
Kimberly encouraged everyone to embrace the idea of being mindful and kind as we interact with others. Intentional kindness can help to alleviate loneliness, bridge differences, and foster stronger, more positive relationships with friends, neighbors, and co-workers.  Her slogan is "Be Mindful to be Kindful."  To learn more about the Kindness Initiative and to purchase products, please visit https://www.mindheartedworld.com/
