Whereas, the Charleston Rifle Club is a non-profit private club dedicated to the betterment of the community and the joys of fellowship; and
Whereas, the Charleston Rifle Club supports the local community by contributing to charitable organizations, including the March of Dimes, and by having an annual March of Dimes Bowling Tournament which has been held every year since 1949 and is the longest running event of its kind, and which raised over nine thousand five hundred dollars in 2005 to fight birth defects; and
Whereas, the Charleston Rifle Club also supports the local community by having members of the club contribute their time every year to the Carolina Children's Charity Telethon; and
Whereas, the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Charleston Rifle Club endows five academic scholarships every year that are awarded to deserving students seeking higher education; and
Whereas, the Charleston Rifle Club will begin a celebration of its 150th anniversary on May 7, 2005, at Ashley Park in the City of Charleston, South Carolina, and will continue the celebration with events held throughout the month of May at the park. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
