Last week, each Committee Chair gave an update on their committee's happenings and goals for the upcoming Rotary year. We encourage all Rotarians to be a member of at least one committee and they would greatly appreciate your help! Please let us know if you are interested in signing up for the 2019-20 Rotary Year! 
 
Rotarian Anton Abraham also gave us a great presentation on the Barnwell Tabby Site Excavation on Hilton Head. This project is a partnership between University of South Carolina Beaufort’s Principles of Archaeology course from Dr. Kim Cavanagh & Mr. Thomas Barnwell in the spring semester of 2019. Students of the class were excavating the tabby structure (315 Squire Pope Road, Hilton Head Island, SC 29926) as part of their course in order to determine age and former usage. A technician from the Utah State University Luminescence Laboratory performed a sample extraction and is now running the Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL-testing) analysis to determine the age of the tabby. 

Short-term outcomes are: Dr. Cavanagh & USCB students excavated and interpreted the Tabby assisted by an archaeologist, a laboratory, and an architectural historian. In collaboration with the HHI Heritage Library, SC Arch Public Outreach Division and SC DNR, two public tour days were offered, as well as four site visits for local public schools. USCB students introduced the site, explained the excavation and did some historical interpretation, bringing awareness and knowledge of the islands history and archaeology to the audience. Long-term outcomes include, Dr. Cavanagh and USCB students will develop a traveling educational exhibit.
