POSTED: 01/28/13 1:53 PM

St. Maarten – The Rotary Club of Sint Maarten-Mid Isle hosted twenty Rotarians and spouses from the Rotary Club of Santiago Monumental, in the Dominican Republic on Friday. The Santiago Rotarians were on a cruise passing through St Maarten and wanted to meet some Rotarians from St Maarten.

During the meeting at Taloula’s Mango, the president of the Santiago Monumental Rotary Club Roberto Almonte thanked the Mid Isle Club for its hospitality, and offered to help or work together on some projects. Present from Rotary Mid Isle were President Jon Hart, Past Assistant Governor Louis Wever and members Ramesh Manek, Sanjay Surtani, Hose Booi, Peter Mazereeuw and Tony da Cunha.

Also joining the fellowship were members of the Rotary Club of Sint Maarten Fred van der Peijl and Nick Hemrajani. The Rotarians from both clubs exchanged some ideas and projects, and got to know each other, and hope that this short meeting bears fruit in the future in the form of a joint project which can benefit both communities.

The Rotary Movement started in 1905 through fellowship with professional and business persons of various vocations. Through the network that was created among the members, they realized the potential of using their expertise in doing worthwhile community projects. And so the first service club in the world was started, but up to today, Rotarians look forward to meeting other Rotarians from around the world, to discuss ideas and possibly work together with grants from the Rotary Foundation. Today over 1.2 million Rotarians are members of over 34,000 clubs in 196 countries worldwide.
