Rotary, Belize hook up

Will provide band instruments

The three Rotary clubs in Grand Cayman have joined with the Rotary Club of Belize to provide instruments for the Majorettes Bugle Band, a Belize youth band founded in the 1950’s but, at this time, without proper instruments.

The request for assistance came from Sir Colville Young who is Governor-General of Belize and a friend of Dr. George Meggs, president of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman, Central.

The governor-general has a keen interest in providing assistance to school and youth group bands in Belize through his Music in Schools initiative and the Grand Cayman Rotary clubs were pleased to help. All Rotary clubs have an international director and committee and part of their remit is to help in areas less well off. This particular project fits very well. New instruments will be provided for the youngsters and the bond between the Cayman Islands and Belize will be strengthened.

There are four Rotary clubs in the Cayman Islands with a total membership approaching 400. The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman meets at the Westin at 12.30pm on Thursdays. Cayman Central meets at the Marriot Hotel at 7pm on Tuesdays, Sunrise Rotary meets at 7am for breakfast on Wednesdays at the Grand Old House and the Rotary Club of Cayman Brac meets on Mondays at 7pm at Biggie’s Restaurant.
