A group of young adults belonging to the Abaco Rotaract Club, a service organization affiliated with the Rotary Club of Abaco, organized a social event at Mangoes Restaurant and Marina. The group hopes to recruit more socially-minded citizens from the community.
Rotaract had publicized the meeting, which took place on June 14, by posting invitations on Facebook and distributing flyers in the community. Though the turnout was limited, the club’s board members warmly received visitors.
Several members of the Rotary Club came to give their support and advice. Members from both clubs held a brain storming session to get ideas on how to better recruit new members.
The Rotaract Club is presently engaged in the maintenance of the Airport Roundabout and is developing the Project HELP program. Project HELP will consist of helping older persons with housekeeping, yard maintenance and landscaping.
Members say belonging to the Rotaract Club offers a great opportunity to meet people with the same interests, and to develop friendships while serving the community.
