Anguilla Rotary Club given two awards at District Conference

ANGUILLA–The recent Rotary District 7020 Conference held in Haiti was attended by six Rotarians from Anguilla including President Jacquie Ruan. The Club was proud to receive two distinguished awards at the ceremony. One of the awards was for Outstanding Achievement under Adversity and the other was to the Interact Club of the Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School for being a part of “Rotary Making a Difference.”

There are 11 countries in the District and many of them suffered from Hurricane Irma. The Anguilla Club was praised for providing significant relief to many affected families and hosting a Christmas Fun Day for over 1,800 children and their families with gifts of turkey or ham given to all. Another project being organised by the Rotary Club is the restoration of the Ebenezer Methodist Church which is currently underway and will soon be functioning again.

The Interact Club was chartered in December 2017 with 42 members being pinned on April 29. President Kyrleson Lewis and his fellow Interactors have been a force to be reckoned with from inception. The club has already conducted many projects, including delivering fruit baskets to senior citizens on Valentine’s Day. The Club is now planning a flea market later this month to raise funds to send two students to the World Affairs seminar in June. All schools are being invited to sell food, clothing or household items to raise funds for their own school’s wish list.

This year the Anguilla Club will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary and plans are already in place for the change of board gala luncheon that will be held at the CuisinArt Hotel and Spa.
