PHILIPSBURG – The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle hosted a fellowship evening as ‘A World’s Greatest Meal to End Polio’ to celebrate Valentine’s Day. A collection was taken for Polio, which will be tripled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
At this event, two Paul Harris Fellows were awarded to Rotarians Millicent De Weever and Brian Greene for their contribution within the community. This was the second Paul Harris Fellow awarded to both of them. De Weever is a founding member of Mid Isle and was the first female President of Mid Isle, as well as the first female President on St. Maarten. Greene is currently on St. Maarten studying Medicine, and is a Past President of his old club The Rotary Club of Carson City Sunset in Carson City, Nevada.
Mid Isle will be holding their Fundraising Motor Treasure Hunt on Sunday, March 19, starting at Kimsha Beach in celebration of the Rotary Foundation turning 100 years old. That’s a century of Rotary members changing lives and improving communities all over the world.
