Rotarians plan Oct. 19 50th BBQ fundraiser

Bennettsville Rotarians used their Tuesday luncheon meeting to cement plans for next Thursday’s Barbecue fundraiser.
It will be the club’s 50th annual event and 3,000 dinners will be prepared.
John Powers and Elisabeth McNiel, co-chairmen for the event, discussed details for the event and announced times each group of Rotarians and their guest helpers need to arrive at the Bennettsvillle Community Center.
Tickets are $7.00 each.
Any business or industry wishing to purchase 10 or more tickets can have their barbecue pork dinners delivered at 11:30 am, Elisabeth McNiel said.  She can be reached to schedule these at her office at (843) 479-3815 by next Tuesday.
Serving barbecue chicken and pork dinners  will be from 4 pm until 7 pm at the Bennettsville Community Center, 714 North Marlboro Street, in Bennettsville.
Special entertainment will begin inside the community center at 5:30 pm and will feature Crystal McInnis Dancers and dancers from the Academy of Movement.
Rotary Club President Mason King presided and reviewed all of the club’s programs during the past quarter.

Fire Prevention urged
Treasurer Donald Hamilton told his fellow Rotarians that this is Fire Prevention Week.
He urged all club members to make sure that their street address is easy to read day and night.
Hamilton also distributed sheets with information for families to prepare for a home fire.

Fire safety tips urged
Among these tips he urged are:
- Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.
- Make sure you know what to do when your smoke alarm sounds.
- Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home.
- Teach children how to escape in case you can't help them.
- Close doors behind you as you leave - this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
- Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.
