Rotary has heart all through third quarter

POSTED: 02/23/15 1:02 AM

St. Maarten -Rotary has heart—an annual program by the Rotary Club geared at assisting members of the community—will continue throughout the third quarter of the Rotary year (January-March).

 Rotary has heart is a project initiated by 2013-2014 Rotary International Vice President Dr. Anne L. Matthews. The purpose of this project is to bring awareness to one of the main focuses of Rotary, addressing hunger and hunger related issues during the week of Valentine’s Day. Last year Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise partnered with Mary Brison of Meals on Wheels Foundation to feed 120 children and elderly.

 

This year Rotary has heart was not only celebrated on Valentine’s Day, but encompasses the whole 3rd quarter of Rotary year (January-March). “The community service project has also been expanded to include anything that showcases our love for our community, be it hunger awareness as was the case last year or donating to a worthy cause. Rotary Sunrise has decided that this year members will be cooking a three course meal for children at a foster home. In addition on February 24, 2015 we will be awarding the schools, foundations or associations that have been approved for sponsorship by our board. We are proud to be celebrating our 10th year of contributing to our community and even prouder to be part of 110 year tradition of being of service to the world,” the Rotary Club said yesterday.

The club meets at Philipsburg Jubilee Library Conference Room every Tuesday mornings at 7:00am for fellowship and breakfast.  For more information on the club visit sxmsunrise.org or email sunriserotary.sxm@hotmail.com, or the club’s Facebook page on Facebook: Rotary Club of Saint Martin Sunrise
