Our Club Highlighted at Rotary’s International Assembly, January 2014
“Your club was highlighted at the International Assembly (training for all 537 District Governors from around the globe). President Ron Burton speaks about his “surprise visit” when he was in town for the Million Dollar Dinner event. Your club clearly made a lasting impression on President Ron that he felt compelled to share it with all of Rotary. My hat is off to all of you for making a difference in your local community and within Rotary. Well done!!”
~ Chris Jones, Past District Governor, Rotary District 7680

Rotary International President Pays Surprise Visit to Our Club Meeting
During our meeting on October 19, 2013, District Governor Luther Moore stopped by unexpectedly and told us he had brought us some guests. After waiting a few minutes, in walked RI President Ron Burton, his wife Jetta Burton, RI Vice President Anne Matthews, along with District Rotary Foundation Chair Firoz Peera and his wife Sheila.
This was a very exciting moment for our club. Ron greeted all the members and was especially excited to see the children present. He talked about our Club meeting on a Saturday and also having the Caribbean as our International focus, and commended us for doing something unique and different. He encouraged us to continue to do good work.
Ron, Jetta and Anne then took some time to take photos with us.
This was a very special and priceless moment for our club and one we will never forget. Thanks to District Governor Luther Moore for making this happen.
