World rotaract week celebrated

Rotaract Blue Club of the Cayman
Islands celebrated a week of activities marking Rotaract’s 42nd year of
existence recently.

The week kicked off on 8 March with

region joined forces and planted a tree at exactly 1pm.

George Town Primary was chosen by
Rotaract Blue ass the site for the tree planting.

In addition, the induction of new
members was marked during world Rotaract Week and the club saw an increase in
prospective membership.

Club President Tricia Cacho noted,
“We are very pleased to see more and more young professionals coming forward to
join our membership. The dedication and commitment that these new members have
demonstrated will certainly increase the club’s capacity to provide service to
the community.”

The week’s activities also included
visits to and from the Rotaract Blue’s sponsor club, the Rotary Central Grand
Cayman Club, as well as a join club project involving a cleanup day at Scholar’s
Park in West Bay.

Director of Blue’s Community
Service Committee, Jessica Powell remarked, “World Rotaract Week is a perfect
time for our club to work together with our sponsor club, Rotary Central.

“The support they have given us
over the years has been tremendous and their guidance in the years to come will
be part of the reason that Rotaract will continue to grow in the Cayman Islands
and throughout the world.”

The first Rotaract Club was
launched in North Caroline, USA on March 1968.
