7 - Member News
The Upstate Chapters of the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association, held their annual awards ceremony at the end of 2022 & our fellow Rotarian and host of our lunches, Fabian Unterzaucher was selected as the Hotelier of the Year. To receive this award at any time is a big deal, but to do so after coming out of two years of a challenging time for the hospitality and tourism industry is even more impressive. Well done, Fabian. Congratulations to you and your staff.

Rotarian Dave Carfolite is now serving as an adjunct professor of media at Furman University.

Stacey Mills & Scott Powell both named on the list of "Greenville's 50 Most Influential" by Greenville Business Magazine.

In other news, we probably had a Rotarian celebrating the addition of a new grandchild. Another Rotarian, probably received a job promotion. Another one of our members probably just got back from the trip of a lifetime, BUT, they forgot to share that news with me. Don’t forget that member news is a great way to share important information with our club. All member news sent to me at will be included at our monthly meetings AND in the club’s e-newsletter.

Rotary’s Four Roles in Promoting Peace 

Rotary and its members are:

  • Practitioners: Our work fighting disease, providing clean water and sanitation, improving the health of mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies directly builds the optimal conditions for peaceful societies.
  • Educators: Our Rotary Peace Centers have trained over 1,300 peace fellows to become effective catalysts for peace through careers in government, education, and international organizations. 
  • Mediators: Our members have negotiated humanitarian ceasefires in areas of conflict to allow polio vaccinators to reach children who are at risk. 
  • Advocates: Our members have an integral role as respected, impartial participants during peace processes and in post-conflict reconstruction. We focus on creating communities and convening groups that are connected, inclusive, and resilient.
