SIMPSON BAY–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 Paul Harris Fellowships were awarded to Rotarian Millicent de Weever and Rotarian Brian Greene for their contribution within the community. These were the second Paul Harris Fellowships awarded to each of them.

  Rotarian Millie is a founding member of Mid Isle and was the first female President of Mid Isle, as well as the first female Rotary Club President in St. Maarten. Rotarian Brian is currently in St. Maarten studying medicine and is a Past President of his old club, Rotary Club of Carson City Sunset in Carson City, Nevada.

  Mid Isle will be holding its fundraising Motor Treasure Hunt on Sunday, March 19, starting at Kim Sha  Beach in celebration of the Rotary Foundation turning 100 years old. That’s a century of Rotarians changing lives and improving communities all over the world. See any member of Mid Isle for more information or call 520-1052 or 520-1899.
