Making a Difference in the Community
Making a difference in the community and bringing smiles to faces was the order of the day for the Rotarians of The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle last Saturday.
Their first stop was a visit to Safe Haven. The ‘Krazy Ladies of Kentucky (Trouble 1, Trouble 2 and Trouble 3 as they call their selves) Sheryl Block, Pat Helton Pike, and Marsha Willet donated much needed food supplies to the shelter. This donation was made possible through Rotarian Jeff. While Michelle Thorngren Bielenberg donated toiletries and toys for the children. Mid Isle also donated women, children and baby clothing.
Their second visit was to the children at Player Development at the Little League Field. Mid Isle donated postage stamps from as far away as Zimbabwe, Rhodesia, New Zealand and Japan and cut out trains for the children to assemble. These items were collected at the recently held Rotary International Convention in Toronto. Mid Isle Rotarians spent time with the children helping them mount the stamps into albums, assembling the trains and helping them with their reading and writing. Joining us was Radha ??? (Vaswani
At their final presentation of the day Mid Isle donated a ‘Welcome Baby Bag’ to an expectant mother whose home is still under repair after Hurricane Irma. Lachman chintaman through Rotarian Jeff also donated a playpen and other baby items.
