Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean’s very own PP Camille (holding the first ‘o’)
attends a “World’s Greatest Meal” and “End Polio Now” fundraiser
hosted by the Rotary Club of Negril  at Ivan’s Catch A Falling Star property in Negril.
On National Tree Planting Day 2022, Rtn. Aunty Tasha co-ordinated a delightful project with the Interact Club of Cornwall College where 46 plastic-bottle-succulent-gardens were created by the members of the club. The question remains though: "Are succulents considered trees?"
Interact Executives from 2 high schools in Montego Bay gathered for Pizza-in-the-Park just in time for back-to-school the week of 6th September 2022.
Hosted by Rtn. Aunty Tasha from the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean and attended by Liz Toby, President of the Impact club Rotary Club of L.I.F.E. , this 4th annual meet-up saw Interact in-coming executives for the 2022-23 Rotary year loaded with information including the RI theme and logo, DG’s message, calendar of events, Rotary & Rotaract Club contacts, logos, Rotary themes of the month, 7 areas of focus and 5 avenues of service.
During the few hours spent together, the group played tag and 1-2-3 red-light as well as lively rounds of Heads Up and Would You Rather as they got to know each other and share project ideas.
The e-club of the Caribbean is excited to announce it’s theme for the 2022-23 PICS competition: INCLUSION, and we look forward to Interactors worldwide submitting creative photos to their sponsor clubs by the end of December 2022, with the theme in mind.
Excerpt from President’s address at the installation of President Roger White at the E-Club of the Caribbean 7020’s first meeting of the new year 2022 – 2023 on 9th July 2022.
“Historically, our club has consistently punched above its weight and certainly since I joined in 2017 the successes of the club indicate that most members on most days do in fact know they can and do make a difference. So that is all good and in this new year we should take that history as a springboard to continue with that same commitment and enthusiasm which members have shown up to now.”
Club members salute incoming President and 4 decade plus Rotarian, Roger White.
Happy New Year Rotary !!

The E-Club of the Caribbean is delighted to be providing "Service Above Self" led by the dynamic Jennifer Jones, Rotary's first female President.
Her theme of "Imagine Rotary" features Australian Indigenous art with a nod to the suffragette movement (with the purple and green colours) and has the E-Club members ready to be creative, active and engaged from July 1st 2022 - June 30th 2023.
For District 7020, District Governor Deborah Howell shall lead the charge for the 10 islands and 80+ clubs in the Caribbean with the district theme of Infinite Possibilities.
Join us any Saturday morning via zoom at 9am AST to see how we IMAGINE ROTARY.
In early April, 2022, the welcome chorus of Rotary’s Four-Way-Test was chanted by newly inducted members of the Interact Clubs of Mount Alvernia and Cornwall College in a ceremony held on Friday April 2nd at Cornwall College’s pristine chapel.
Hosted by the Executive Committee of the Interact Club of Cornwall College headed by President Joshua Flynn, this Interclubbing & Installation event was a long time coming after 2 years of online meetings and socially distant projects and included the participation of neighbouring school Mount Alvernia, led by their President Hanah Chow.
(The Montego Bay High School held their installation earlier in the year, led by President Akili Duncan, inducting 19 new Interact members.)

Altogether, 83 new members of the Rotary International family were inducted into Interact with certificates and logo pins.
After the formalities, each school took it in turn to entertain with talent items, quizzes and games before refreshments were served.
What a delight to be surrounded by Interactors once again as schools in Montego Bay, Jamaica re-opened for face-to-face classes.
In attendance, from the family of Rotary, were: Past District Governor Haresh Ramchandani; Assistant Governor Elect and Youth Services Director of the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean Natasha Parchment-Clarke; President of the Rotary Club of L.I.F.E, Nickeisha Campbell-Brooks and Cornwall College Alumni and Rotaractor Ivan Godfrey.

About the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean District 7020:
The Rotary Club of St. Maarten was chartered in 2013 as result of a desire to create an online and flexible way for Rotarians to serve the world, especially those that have a tie to the Caribbean.   For more information, visit the club website at https://e7020.org.
Our concentration is supporting the communities of the northern Caribbean but our humanitarian service projects reach across the world.
Support is needed for the recovery efforts by Rotarians in St. Vincent. The urgently needed supplies such as water, blankets, shelter are all available locally but funding is required from them to be purchased and delivered to the refugees. If you would like to help, the Disaster Network of Assistance Rotary Action Group (dna-rag.com) are collecting and distributing funds on behalf of Rotary District 7030.
The Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunset is a loyal partner with us in the Butterfly StoryBook.  The club organized a presentation event for all their story writers where all the E-Club Butterfly certificates were distributed. In addition, each participant received a publication of short stories on the theme of the Rotary Four Way Test provided by RC St. Martin Sunset. A video of the event is below.

Please join us in congratulating the Rotaract Club of Port-au-Prince Champ de Mars for their winning entry to the R.O.A.R Competition! 

If you missed what R.O.A.R. is about, it means Rotaract Orators Addressing Rotary. It is an oratory competition designed to support and encourage Rotaractors in public speaking. This year's competition asked Rotaractors to discuss how they would approach a critical issue that affects one of the target groups from the Rotaract District Project - T.E.A.M. (teens, elderly, adults (young) and mothers).

Congratulations to Port-au-Prince Champ de Mars!
