President Donna Arter and Rotarian Vincent Wheatley of Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town organized a successful "Family of Rotary" service project on the first day of the new Rotary year.
Thirty-four Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends of Rotary traveled to Anegada to paint a building on the Community Center grounds, the building is used to conduct steel pan practice. Participating in the Rotary Club Sunrise project were members of Rotary Club of Road Town, Rotaract Club of Tortola and Rotary Club of Tortola.
Friends and family of Rotarians rounded out the work force. "Rotary Club Sunrise built on a two-year tradition of spending the first day of the new Rotary year on Anegada. This year, we went Bigger, Better and Bolder by inviting the Family of Rotary to join our club in a service project and fun day on Loblolly Bay beach," said President Donna Arter.
"The weather held out for a successful painting project and afternoon of fellowship at the Big Bamboo restaurant on Loblolly Bay. The service project's success is due to the hard work of Rotarians, their family and friends along with the generous donations from Anegada Beach Club, who donated paint and supplies, Island Paints, who provided a discount on supplies, Road Town Fast Ferry and the Levons family of Big Bamboo for providing special rates for our volunteers and Jerry Vanterpool for providing ground transportation on Anegada ".
The Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town was chartered on 31 March, 2009 with 23 members and has grown to 34 members. The Club meets Tuesdays at 7am at Maria’s By the Sea Hotel.
