Rotary Club treats Salvation Army Children’s Home youths to Fun Day
YOUNGSTERS who reside at the Salvation Army’s Children’s Home received a wet treat last Sunday, March 21 from Members of The Rotary Club of St. Vincent.
The club said in a release that it collaborated with the Salvation Army Children’s Home and friends and treated the children to a day out at a local beach for some downtime and fun in the sun.
The relationship with the Salvation Army Children’s Home began in earnest in 2020 when the Rotary Club of St. Vincent reached out to provide service to the children through academic support, reading time, and social engagement, in an effort to boost their confidence, social skills and overall wellbeing.
As part of the fun initiative on Sunday, the children received routine dental check ups compliments Rotarian Dr. Francois Truchot of Dental Arts Clinic, and a sumptuous lunch compliments Café Soleil.
President Annette Mark, and other Rotarians present were able to socialise with the children, engaging them in outdoor games, swimming and boat riding – a positively memorable and enjoyable event for all.
The Club has expressed gratitude to Kathleen De Guzman, one of the organisers; Coach Kyle Dougan of Black Sands Swim Squad; Captains Jake Heimann and Michael Brackin; Café Soleil; and all Rotarians and friends of Rotary for readily contributing to the successful execution of the event.
The club said it remains committed to opening opportunities for the development of the youths and children through avenues of service in our local community.
