Some Jamaicans kept the the tradition of going to work on Labour Day by helping to give Jamaica a facelift, painting and doing repairs to Public buildings, roads, their offices, homes and more.
Kudos to all who could have used it as a rest day but decided to take on the manual labour.
Out of the many great Projects that Suga saw happening on that day, Suga would like to highlight the Repainting of parts of the Savanna-la-Mar Hospital by the Rotaract Club of Savanna-la-Mar and the Repainting of a Pedestrian crossing that was a joint project between the Rotaract Clubs of St. Andrew, Liguanea Plains, St. Thomas and New Kingston.
Sometimes Jamaicans may see Pedestrian crossings and still choose to cross the road at another point and put themselves in danger.
Hopefully the brighter Pedestrian crossings as a result of the work done on Labour Day will remind Jamaicans that they should cross there.
Remember to do your part to help Build a Better Jamaica.
Who knew cashing in crates of bottles could do so much? RCLP cashed in bottles from a bottle drive to purchase educational charts and over 100 seedlings for the Shalom Pre-School Feeding Programme. The University of the West Indies, Mona Social Services and parents will also assist with the growth and maintenance of the Vegetable Garden.
The club also donated books to the school courtesy of the Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association and gave them Four Way Test Signs to be placed on the walls of the School.
What is the Four Way Test? It is said by Rotaractors and Rotarians at each meeting they hold, it is also a way to live by. With each situation, test yourself. Ask,
1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
This was done during World Rotaract Week to commemorate when the organization began in March, 1968.
