Two weekends ago, the non-profit organization, Rotary District 7020 hosted its Rotary Leadership Summit in Norfolk, Virginia.

During the Summit, 500 Rotarians and Rotaractors (members of the youth arm, Rotaract) were put to work. They packaged 100,000 meals to send across the globe to combat world hunger. Kudos to Rotary District 7020 for executing this initiative.

St. Ann Infirmary receives a Water Tank from Rotary Ocho Rios East!

The Rotary Club of Ocho Rios East is a Non-Profit Organization that serves in their Communities and offers various Benefits to their members, just as other Rotary Clubs.

Earlier this year in March, Rotary Ocho Rios East donated a Water Tank to the St. Ann Infirmary. They also found time in the same month to Plant 18 Trees, representing each of their members in the Blue Mountains area.

While the Blue Mountains area has a lot of vegetation, it is also a World Heritage Site. They chose that area to plant the trees because they saw it as an opportunity to contribute to its maintenance and of course preservation of the environment.
