The Rotary Club of Abaco held its turnover dinner on June 30. The Jib Room was the venue for the function which attracted many of the club members and their families.

Past President, Jo-Ann Bradley passed the torch of power for the year 2012-13 to the new President, Dwayne Wallas. He in turn briefly explained the philosophy he would follow during his tenure and introduced his new board members who all received a pin attesting to their position within the club.

As a fundraiser, the board members decided to offer blackjack and poker to whoever wanted to try their luck. Soon the two blackjack tables and the poker table became crowded.  Players could buy chips and play as long as they wanted to. Chips did not have a monetary value, but instead were traded in for prizes. Many walked away with bottles of wine and necklaces among others.

The function grossed close to three thousand dollars. The net profit will be used for club projects.
