Community Engagement

Our club is very active supporting and sponsoring community activies.

Below is just a sample of our involvement.

TAPS at Twilight

TAPS is a major local community event arranged by the St. Simons Rotary Club to honor the men and women who have fallen in the service of our country, those who have valiantly served and returned, and those who are serving today. The tribute was begun in 1991 as an annual observance of Memorial Day.  To watch the virtual Taps from 2020, please click here.

Reading Rockets

After months of inactivity due to the pandemic, Reading Rockets is finally taking off again!  Reading Rockets will collaborate with Glynn County Schools to videotape Reading Rockets volunteers reading selected books for the children. Once recorded, the videos are uploaded to the SSI Rotary Reading Rockets YouTube Channel. This project will build an archive of auditory reading resources accessible to all of the pre-K, kindergarten and first grade teachers, as well children and their parents far and wide.

Rotary Scholarship Fund

The scholarship awards vary in number and size each year.  The club typically awards scholarships of $3000 per year for 4 years of undergraduate study ($1500 for each of the fall and spring semesters).

  The College or University may be located in or outside the state of Georgia, and must be fully accredited.  Recipients are selected on the basis of scholarship, leadership, community service and other demonstration of personal character, as well as financial need.
