Back to School Project Highlights

One of Rotary International six (6) Areas of Focus is “Supporting Education” and with September identified  as “Basic  Education and Literacy Month” the first project for President Dr. Vanetta Rodgers was a Back to School Initiative which was executed in partnership with Digicel Antigua as the Corporate Sponsor. 
 
A number of back packs with school supplies were distributed to several students in the four school zones during the first week of school, September 3rd and September 5th 2019. A new school term has begun and the Rotary Club of Antigua played its role in ensuring that our nation's youth are well equipped to manage the subjects on the academic calendar.
 
We thank Digicel Antigua for its corporate support!!

Rotary 2019 -  Counsel on Legislation

Every three years, Rotarians from around the world meet at the Council on Legislation to review and vote on proposed changes to the legislation that governs Rotary. They consider enactments, which change Rotary’s governing documents, and position statements by the RI Board.  Councils give Rotary members a voice in how our organization is governed. Learn more about the Council on Legislation and the Council on Resolutions on our Council web page or read our live blog of the 2019 Council. 

The 2019 Council on Legislation may not have made as many dramatic changes as the Council three years ago did, but it made several decisions that will shape the future of Rotary.

Among the most important, the Council elevated the status of Rotaract clubs.  The change broadens the definition of membership in Rotary International to include Rotaract clubs. The change is intended to increase the support that Rotaract clubs receive from RI and to enhance their ability to serve.

“We need to be an inspiration to our young partners, so they will continue doing the great service that they do,” said RI President Barry Rassin when he presented the measure. “This sends a strong message that they are truly our partners in service.”

In many ways, the Rotaract experience will not change. Rotary clubs will still charter and sponsor Rotaract clubs. Rotaract clubs will still have their own standard constitution and their own unique club experience. Members of a Rotaract club will not be called Rotarians. And Rotaract clubs will not immediately pay dues or receive other benefits, such as the official magazine that Rotary members receive. The Board will determine a dues structure over time.

The measure simply expands the definition of membership in Rotary International to include both Rotary and Rotaract clubs. 

Every three years, representatives from Rotary districts around the world meet in Chicago, Illinois, USA, to consider changes to the constitutional documents that govern Rotary International. This year’s Council considered more than 100 proposals.

Representatives authorized the Board to pursue changing RI’s charitable status to a section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. It is presently a 501(c)(4). A task force has been studying the possible change for 18 months and says it will offer benefits that include tax reductions and vendor discounts that will reduce expenses.

Rotary President Message
MARK DANIEL MALONEY
President, Rotary Internationa

Dear fellow Rotarians,
During 2019-2020, I am encouraging Rotarians and Rotaractors to grow Rotary. We must grow our service, we must grow the impact of our projects, but, most importantly, we must grow our membership so that we can achieve more.
 
Let us try a new approach to membership, one that is more organized and strategic. I am asking every club to form an active membership committee consisting of people of different backgrounds who will look methodically at the leadership of the community.
 
Your club’s membership committee will then apply Rotary’s classification system — designed to ensure that the range of professions in your community is well represented — to identify potential leaders with the skill, the talent, and the character that will strengthen your club. If your club’s membership committee is unsure how to proceed, look to the club membership committee checklist on Rotary.org for clearly defined steps to organizing its work.
 
I am asking every club to form an active membership committee.
 
How else will we connect to grow Rotary? We will also form new types of clubs — either independent clubs or satellite clubs — with different meeting experiences and engaging service opportunities, not just where there is no Rotary, but also where Rotary is already thriving. No Rotary club in the world can possibly serve all segments of its community. Therefore, we must organize new clubs to engage the community leaders who cannot connect with our existing clubs.
 
Growing Rotary is all about taking the connections that make our organization unique in the world and strengthening and multiplying them. Let us commit ourselves to growing Rotary and to welcoming the next diverse generation of women and men as Rotary Connects the World.

Rotary Club of Antigua Installs New Board for 2019-2020

Posted by Shamarie Spencer

Under the Rotary international theme this year, “Rotary Connects the World”, the Rotary Club of Antigua (RCA), has installed a new Board for the 2019-2020 Rotary Year, during the 2019 Handover and Awards Ceremony held over the week-end.

This year the Club will be led by President Dr. Vanetta Rodgers, who has indicated that she is looking forward to a phenomenal year, which will be filled with a number of activities geared towards expanding the Club’s reach in community development as well as increasing the visibility of the charitable organization. President Vanetta also expressed thanks to the members of the new board for agreeing to serve in the respective capacities.

She emphasized that the Rotary theme “Rotary Connects the World”, is a fitting one, since one of the objectives of the Club revolves around bringing people from all walks of life and classifications together in a positive way and to give back to society. The newly installed President received her instruments from the outgoing President Adekunle Osoba.

The other members of the Board are:

Immediate Past President- Adekunle Osoba

Vice President – H.E Arthur Thomas

Club Secretary -Evangeline Allen

Club Treasurer – Julietta Rhudd

Club Administrator- Joanna Shamarie Spencer

The Directors are: Ilean Ramsey, (Foundation), Rozanne Emanuel, (Youth Service), Kirk Francis, (Service Projects) and C. Kevin Silston, (Membership).

Daren Matthew Ward and Elisa Graham will serve as the Sergeant At Arms and Public Relations Officer respectively.

Two members were also pinned during the ceremony. They were Joanna Shamarie Spencer as a returning member and Louisianne Josiah as a new member. They both expressed happiness to be a part of the service organization and look forward to giving back to the community.

Guest Speaker, Reverend Fr. Christopher Roberts, wished the New Board a successful year. He also urged the membership to work together and be mindful of egos which can impact the effectiveness and efficiency of the Club negatively. Gt. Roberts also congratulated the Club on the work that it continues to do in positively assisting with the development of society.

The auspicious occasion, which was hosted by Sergeant At Arms and radio personality, Daren Matthew-Ward took place at Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa over the weekend and was highly attended by Rotarians and their Partners in Service, friends of Rotary, Rotaractors and other specially invited guests.

Book Reading Competition

Posted by Evangeline Allen
Welcome to a very special occasion in the life of the Rotary Club of Antigua today.          
If you are planning for a year, sow rice, If you are planning for a decade, plant trees.  If you are planning for a lifetime, educate the people.  This year, with the Club’s focus being Literacy, we are pleased that we are able to create and stimulate competition by offering various literacy projects, today being the Book Reading Competition.
In September, we were able to provide a dozen students with back packs and back to school supplies.
At the start of the school year, we also started a Student of the Month Award where every month 3 students are recognized from Grades 1, 2 and 3 from the Golden Grove, GreenBay and Five Islands Primary Schools. 
The student of the month is chosen based on qualities such as character, leadership and academics. The student of the month must be a diligent student, completing his/her assignments on time, showing strong effort to learn the subjects.
The student of the month too must be able to demonstrate excellent behavior inside and outside the classroom, is well mannered, and respectful to both peers and teachers. Lastly, the student of the month shows exemplar character through his/her compassion, honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, optimism, and loyalty in creating a positive school environment.
Through this program, we have been advised that the students are all excited and as a result there has been a marked improvement in the students’ school work and even activities outside of the class room.  Rotary Club of Antigua is happy that we are able to assist in raising the standard and revive the student’s morale.
In January, We launched the Book in a Bag Competition which ran for three months.  This competition is designed to stimulate reading.  Students were given a selection of books under various categories to read within the assigned time frame.  Designated response activities were also assigned for completion after reading and Book reports were also presented on each read. 
THE WINNERS WILL BE PRESENTED AND AWARDED AT THE END OF THE COMPETITION TODAY.
 
Today, we will witness 9 students 3 each from Grade 5 of the Golden Grove, GreenBay and Five Islands Primary Schools compete in the Rotary Book Reading Competition. The goal of the Book Reading Competition is to stimulate, encourage and activate reading on a continuous basis.   Children love a challenge, so when we make reading into a competition, students who otherwise wouldn't want to read will be excited to read as much as they can. 
           
I wish to advise all the participants that you are all winners just for being here today. Do not be daunted if you are not placed, just keep on reading.  It’s one of the most marvelous adventures that you can have.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.  The man who never reads lives only one.
 
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Antigua, please allow me to congratulate the esteemed teachers, parents and students of the Five Islands, Green Bay and Golden Grove Primary Schools on the excellent job you are doing to foster and promote literacy. I encourage you to continue to always strive for excellence in education and at whatever else you choose to do in life.
Rotary Club is eternally grateful to the corporate donors who partnered with us in this all important Literacy project….. National Tours & Services, Antigua Home & Office Depot, Antigua Commercial Bank, Big Banana, LTWS Shipping, Paperclips and Tucker on the Grill for making today a reality.
I personally would like to thank the Judges, especially Mrs. Jacintha Gore who when I called her on the phone was so warm and welcoming and shared her knowledge willing.  Truly depicting our Rotary International President’s Theme:  Rotary Serving Humanity.
And to all present here today, thank you for helping Rotary Club of Antigua to promote Literacy, one of the greatest gifts a person could receive.  Sit back, Relax and enjoy what we have in store for you today.

Back Packs & Back to School Supplies Presentation

Posted by Evangeline Allen on Sep 01, 2016
In Rotary, there are six areas of focus, one being Basic Education and Literacy.  September is recognized as Literacy Month.  This is when we focus on the importance of literacy and education in our humanitarian service. 
Being literate does not just mean having the ability to read a book or a newspaper.  Being literate means being able to comprehend the instructions on a medicine bottle, a set of directions, or a job posting.  It means understanding the note written by a child’s teacher.  It means being able to use a computer, follow a recipe or apply for a mortgage.  Literacy means being part of the larger society.  It means inclusion and it means empowerment.
Those who cannot read or write, whether they are children or adults, are cut off from important information in ways too numerous to count. 
The Rotary Club of Antigua this year, have seen a simple and creative way to break this cycle.  And what more creative way to start than by making this timely donation of backpacks and school supplies to twelve deserving students from the Five Islands, Green Bay and Golden Grove Primary Schools, three schools in Zone 1. 
No skill is more crucial to the future of a child, or to a democratic and prosperous society than literacy.  Literacy is the single most significant skill needed to function effectively in school and in the workplace. 
And so with this in mind, we intend to reward students in Grades 1, 2 and 3 on a monthly basis from the three Schools in Zone 1 by offering lucrative prizes to the Student of the Month from each grade.
                                                                                                                        
Literacy will also be celebrated with a Book Reading Competition for Grades 4 and 5 students of the Gray’s Green, Golden Grove and Five Islands Primary School. The goal of the Book Reading Competition is to increase the quality and quantity of books students read for enjoyment. Children love a challenge, so when we make reading into a competition, students who otherwise wouldn't want to read will be excited to read as much as they can. 
 
 
In the words of Irina Bokova, ‘Literacy is much more than an educational priority – it is the ultimate investment in the future and the first step towards all the new forms of literacy required in the twenty-first century.  We wish to see a century where every child is able to read and to use this skill to gain autonomy’.
 
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Antigua and on my own behalf, please allow me to congratulate the esteemed teachers, parents and students of the Five Islands, Green Bay and Golden Grove Primary Schools on the excellent job you are doing to foster and promote literacy. I encourage you to continue to always strive for excellence in education and at whatever else you choose to do in life.

Port Manager-Darwin Telemaque- Overview of the Economic & Social Transformation Impact on Ports

Posted by Evangeline Allen on Sep 25, 2015
 
 
It is sometimes agreed that those involved in Port Management focus almost exclusively on what is happenning within the boundaries of those facilities.  
 
However, in an increasingly complexed global and economic environment, there is a real risk that a fixation on the innards of a Port can serve to stymie economic development rather than facilitate growth.

The Rotary way is to light a candle. I light one, you light one, 1.2 million Rotarians light one. Together, we light up the world."

Rotary International President Kalyan Banerjee - 2011/2012

Posted by Sherrie-Ann Brazier on Sep 01, 2011

On some days, when you pass his office on the 18th floor of One Rotary Center in Evanston, Illinois, USA, you will see Kalyan Banerjee seated at a large, round table with nothing on it, save for a few sheets of paper on which he is intently writing in longhand. Backlit by huge windows that offer a panoramic view of Chicago, and with his head down, Banerjee often appears to be in deep concentration, a man with a singular and urgent task.
