President's Message
Happy New Year

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season surrounded by friends & family and 2020 is off to a great start. This year the new year is a half way point for me. It isn't a fresh start but a continuation of a year leading this great club in service to our community. I look forward to finishing the Rotary year strong and celebrating all of our hard work on Jeykll Island this Spring.

This Week's Speaker
The Pease Brothers - Beyond The Finish

Upon witnessing Brent complete his first IRONMAN competition, Kyle asked Brent a life-changing question: “Can people in wheelchairs do IRONMAN?” Brent never hesitated with his response. The answer was a resounding yes. Learning from others and through their own hard work, the brothers competed in IRONMAN competitions around the country and were ultimately awarded the opportunity to participate in the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. In this memoir that interweaves both their perspectives, Kyle and Brent recount the experiences that shaped the strength, tenacity, and undying bond that has resonated between them since childhood.
