PHILIPSBURG–The St. Dominic High School (SDHS) Interact Club and Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle have put together two joint projects.

  Mid Isle headed the project to donate thirty care packages for the less fortunate people in the community that were distributed this week by the social clubs. These packages contained food items, toiletries, handmade iced Christmas cookies and a candy cane.

  Ten baskets were donated to the Anglican Church on Back Street, 10 baskets went to Bishop Ellis Foundation and 10 went to Social Services for distribution. Items and goods collected by the SDHS Interact Club were also used in the care packages.

  The act of giving back to the community transformed the entire class of 4th-formers and the SDHS Interact Club into a team as they executed their annual Senior Citizens’ Brunch.

  They catered to 80 seniors at the Seniors Citizens Recreational Centre in Hope Estate and presented them with a variety of foods, performances, and activities. The Club prepared gift baskets to give out to each of the senior citizens filled with goodies and toiletries. These gift baskets were made possible with the immense help from Rotary Club St. Maarten-Mid Isle.

  Both Mid Isle Rotarians and SDHS Interactors were present at all presentations. With these two projects Mid-Isle and the SDHS Interact Club have distributed 110 baskets and 30 food boxes to date.

  “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mid Isle Rotarians, SDHS Interactors, Friendly Island Pharmacy, ACE Hardware, Fairway Market, Sanjana Manek and Radha Vaswani. We also wish everyone in the community a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018,” stated Rotary Mid Isle in a press release on Wednesday.

  Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle presently meets at Pineapple Pete in Simpson Bay Tuesday’s at 7:00pm.
