Rotaract District 7020 and 7030 Join Efforts to Aid the BVI Autism Centre

District 7020 Rotaract Representative, Jevaughn Rhymer and members of his District Board handing over Learning aids to the BVI Autism Centre last Thursday, April 12.

Rotaract District 7020 (RD7020) is a non-profit organization, which is the youth arm of Rotary District 7020 and by extension, Rotary International. RD720  has clubs across the Caribbean such as Jamaica, Cayman Islands, St. Maarten (Dutch), St. Martin (French), Haiti, Anguilla, The Bahamas, Tortola (B.V.I), St. Thomas (U.S.V.I) and the Turks and Caicos Islands. In honour of Rotary’s World Autism Month, Rotaract District 7020’s Representative, Jevaughn Rhymer and members of his District Board handed over learning aids to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) Autism Centre last Thursday, April 12.

The items were purchased from the donations given by Rotaract District 7030 (including clubs from St. Kitts & Nevis, Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname) after Hurricane Irma hit the island.

Rotaractors will continue to work with the Autism Centre and assist with post hurricane revival efforts.

Kudos to RD7020 and RD7030!

Comments:

Exquisite ambience and scenic view with hummingbirds in full flight while you wait for your food made fresh to order.  Menu items were quite reasonable in cost. My husband and I had the Jamaican breakfast that included Ackee and saltfish, along with sides of our choice. I thought that they needed more filling in their Fritters, but their Ackee and other sides such as boiled banana were spot on.

The father-daughter duo who run EITS, Michael and Robyn Fox, were hospitable, making us feel right at home.

Their high standard as a must-stop on the Blue Mountain culinary trail has been kept. Suga snaps for EITS.

Champions and Winners of the Weekend in Sports!

COMMONWEALTH GAMES GOLD COAST 2018 – ATHLETICS

The Commonwealth Games down under have come to an end and Jamaica did extremely well, winning International medals that we have never won before.

Over the weekend, we took over some of the Field events!

Jamaica’s thrower, Danniel Thomas struck Gold in the Women’s Shot Put!

Fedrick Dacres and Traves Smikle brought home the Gold and Silver respectively for the Men’s Discus.

Back on the track, Paralympian, Tevaughn Thomas won Bronze in the Men’s T47 100m!

Natoya Goule finally medalled internationally with a Personal Best in the Women’s 800m Final with a sweet Bronze medal finish.

Danielle Williams and Yanique Thompson got Jamaica a Silver and Bronze respectively in the Women’s 110m Hurdles.

Jamaica also took home medals in the 4×400m Relays for both the Men and Women!

Bronze for the Men

Gold for the Women!

NBA PLAYOFFS – BASKETBALL

The NBA Playoffs started last Saturday and the Celtics are already 1 up on the Bucks and the Thunder 1 up on the Jazz.

Warriors blew out the Spurs and the 76ers routed the Heat.

The Raptors finally won an opening Game 1 in the Playoffs, beating the Wizards.

The no. 1 team in the West, the Rockets, had a fight to beat the Timberwolves, 104-101. This may be one of the best match ups for the West in the 1st round.

Surprises?

The Cavs lost to the Pacers 80-98. But if you think about it, LeBron James usually allows a Game 1 loss.

Pelicans beat the Trail Blazers, 97-95. They had a significant lead for most of the game and when the Trail Blazers came fighting back it just wasn’t enough.

PREMIER LEAGUE – SOCCER

After Manchester United lost to West Brom over the weekend, Manchester City officially became Champions of the Premier League!

It’s Man City’s 1st title under Pep Guardiola. Congrats to them.

More exciting weeks ahead in Sports. Stay tuned!
