Last week President Christine and Literacy Director Su presented a cheque for CI$500 to Ms. Kimberly Litrico (Deputy Principal at Bodden Town Primary School) and Ms. Cheryl Ann Edwards (the BTPS volunteer librarian) as part of the Literacy Committee’s Adopt-A-Library project. Sunrise adopted BTPS’ library over the course of this Rotary year. We also donated over CI$4,500 worth of levelled reading books and materials for the new Home Reading Programme that was launched at BTPS in April 2016 and is proving to be a great success. The Adopt-A-Library funds have gone towards further books, materials and equipment to help improve the school library. Ms Cheryl Ann has done a wonderful job volunteering a few mornings a week throughout the school year to organise the books and make sure the library is well-used by the students and teachers alike.
After the presentation, Director Su received the following email from Ms Litrico:
“Thank you so much for inviting me and Mrs. Edwards this morning. It was such a great experience especially hearing all of the good work being done locally and around the Caribbean. It really resonated with me! I thank you and Rotary Sunrise for all that you have done and will continue to do for our country. It is a blessing to see how much other people really care and volunteer to help those who need it most. Thanks again!”
The Last Hurrah - Fellowship Games Night
Bunko was bonko for 24 worthy souls who showed up at President Christine's home to share in some fine food and fellowship last Saturday. Led by PP Kim, Rotarians and Rotaractors alike paired up to roll the dice. These photos say it all.
The winners (Kim said it was all Michelle's lucky rolls)
some winners were more smug than others
the food was fine
A chance for fine fellowship too
Roll, Yawn, Smile. All in a night's work.
Camp starts this week for Culinary Camp, and administrator James Myles will be our speaker on Wednesday to give us the highlights.
Rotary Sunrise is sponsoring the camp which has been offered by the Youth Services Unit. Baking 202 will focus on such things as baking bread, cake, and cupcakes, while pastry chef Harif will teach sugar craft and cake decorating for 16 Intermediate Teen Bakers. Our contribution of $1,788.00 will go toward student funding as well as a showcase and participant award presentation.
