Mid Isle for their annual project 'Rotary has Heart' held a pre valentines luncheon for the seniors of the C.O.M.E Center
Mid Isle Has Heart for Seniors
Each year The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle organize a ‘Rotary Has Heart’ project, on or around Valentine’s Day each year. The project is first and foremost an effort to put food on an empty plate, to fill an empty stomach, to bring a ray of hope to the hungry.
This year Mid Isle decided to serve the seniors at the C.O.M. E. Center a pre-Valentine’s luncheon. The Community Outreach Mentorship & Empowerment Foundation (C.O.M.E. Center) currently caters to the community of St. Maarten with an Adult Literacy Program twice weekly, a Senior Citizens in Action twice week and a feeding program five days each week. In addition, they do counseling whenever the need arises and a sewing program at various times in the year.
This luncheon for the seniors was made possible by the Rotarians of Mid Isle and Pierre Ferland of Pineapple Pete who returned the check presented to him when he was awarded with the Mid Isle vocational award in January.
