Rotary Club of Freeport donates $8,000 to the Y.M.C.A. for hurricane restoration

 

FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA, MAY 12, 2006 -- The Rotary Club of Freeport has donated $8,000 to the Y.M.C.A. for the purchase of much-needed swimming pool supplies and equipment. In conjunction with Guardian Fencing of Freeport, the fencing surrounding the pool area that had been damaged by hurricanes was restored and some new fencing installed. Important items to the YMCA's swimming programme were also provided, such as an elevated lifeguard station, kick boards, floats, rescue equipment, and the deposit on the new pool heat retention cover were purchased.

 

These funds were received principally from a generous donation from The Rotary Club of Nassau East and also from a grant from Rotary International and Rotary District 6990.
