20180523_103536.jpg

The New Kingston Rotary Club along with the Rotaract club they sponsor, New Kingston Rotaract Club are currently painting a Pedestrian crossing on one of the busiest roads in New Kingston, Jamaica.

I am sure it will be appreciated.

Both clubs are part of the non-profit organization, Rotary International. Good work Rotarians and Rotaractors!

Happy Labour Day Suga Bears! What’s your Labour Day Project? Have a productive day, whether at home or in the streets.

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!

Wing Sauce Competition and Farmer’s Market this Saturday in Mona!

There are so many things happening this weekend! Not to worry though, if you schedule your time well, you can make it to all of the events.

Non-profit organization, New Kingston Rotaract Club (Youth arm of Rotary) is having their annual Wing Sauce Competition this Saturday, March 24th by the Mona Dam. However, this time they are also having a Farmer’s Market encouraging us to eat healthy and buy our local produce, while contributing to charity at the same time. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Judging and sampling usually takes place at about 2:30/3:00pm. Suga will be judging too!

So, after returning from the Jamaica Coffee Festival in Newcastle, you can make your way over to the Mona Dam. You can enjoy watching non-profit organizations battle to become the Wing Sauce Champs, probably sample a few tasty wings, buy some fresh, local produce and then head over to the National Stadium to see our Boys and Girls Champs. After all, the hot races are usually run in the late afternoon and evening.

You can then pat yourselves on the back for supporting Brand Jamaica, contributing to Charity and supporting our future in Education and Athletics all in one day. Scouts from some of the best colleges around the world will be at the National Stadium to watch and recruit our athletes.

Keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica and if you are between the ages of 18-30, see how you can join them!

Stay tuned for your update on the Jamaica Coffee Festival later this week!

The non-profit organization, Rotaract Club of Kingston, also known as the youth arm of Rotary, in particular the Rotary Club of Kingston, has a major education project this year. The goal is to assist select schools in reaching the criteria for full recognition as Early Childhood Institutes by the Early Childhood Commission.
