Members of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central returned recently from a district conference in Tortola, British Virgin Islands with top awards.
The club won the Platinum Governor’s Award, Champion’s Award (Best Club in the District), Platinum Award for Program participation Literacy Award and Zone 34 Public Image Citation.
“We had ambitious plans for this year on what we wanted to accomplish and we are very pleased for being recognised for our efforts,” said President Ravi Kapoor.
The many projects carried out by Rotary Central caught the attention of many
Rotarians at the District 7020 Conference.
“We have always been very active here”, said Mr. Kapoor. “This year we made a concentrated effort to document our efforts and we are very happy with the results.”
Competition was tough among the clubs in the district, which is comprised of 10 countries and 84 clubs. Rotary Central set the standards by taking the first Club-of-the Month Award in August 2012. This was not enough as the club achieved the highest points for September, October and November and an overall total of five first place finishes in the year.
“Everyone was amazed by what we accomplished and were wondering what was happening in Cayman,” he said.
The Zone 34 Public Citation Award was awarded for the work done by the club in developing a public image plan and initiating public relations activates that enhanced the visibility of the club in the community. Zone 34 comprises of 14 districts, 800 clubs and over 33,500 Rotarians.
Rotary Central had a strong contingent with 10 members in attendance at the district conference; the first ever to be held in the British Virgin Islands. More than 512 delegates were registered for this conference. Next year’s conference will be held in Grand Cayman.
