On June 27 the Rotary Club of Abaco and many guests celebrated the changeover dinner for the 2016 / 2017 year. Valerie Dean is now the Club’s President.

The theme for her year is “Celebrating 45 Years of Charitable Excellence.”

During the dinner meeting, the new board was installed and the outgoing President, Charles Carey, reflected on his year and the Club’s many successes.

Some of the projects the Rotary Club of Abaco completed last year were:

-Careers Seminar at SC Bootle

-Computers for ACH

-Classroom Supplies for ACH & SC Bootle

-Christmas Parcels

-Donations for Hurricane Joaquin Relief

-Blood Drive

-Stove Donation for North Abaco Students / Seniors Meal Program

-Bahamas Primary Student of the Year Association Donation

-Every Child Counts Donations

-Lovely’s School Lunch Program Donation

-Hurricane Relief in Dominica

-Sponsored Annual Hugh Cottis Speech Competition

-Annual Senior Citizens Luncheon

Many of these projects are yearly and highly anticipated by the community.

President Dean’s goals for this year are “working smart” by partnering with many of the other hard-working service clubs in Abaco and continuing to grow the significance of the Club within the community.
