Barbadian Ladies pause to reflect: 2012 World Rotaract Week celebrations Begin
Rotaract is celebrating its 44th anniversary. On the 13th March, 1968, the Rotaract Club of the University of North Carolina was the first Rotaract Club to receive its official charter. Four decades later, there are now more than 8,400 clubs worldwide, in approximately 170 countries. To mark this achievement, the Rotaract Club of South Barbados will host a series of events being held from March 11 to 17.
To commence these festivities members of the club joined in worship at the James Street Methodist Church where they shared some of their previous community service activities with the congregation and provided details on upcoming events.
The Rotaract Club of South Barbados; the youth arm of the Rotary Club of Barbados South is a community based service club which provides an opportunity for young professionals between the ages of 18 – 30 to engage in activities which will address the social and physical needs of its community while building the personal and professional lives of its members through fellowship and service.
Some of the activities planned for the week include a Career Building Lecture on March 13th at 7:00pm at the Guardian General Sports Club, the first Kite-Making workshop on March 17th to commence the club’s second annual Come Fly Kite Competition for Secondary Schools being held on Saturday March 31, 2012.
