The Rotary Club of Abaco (RCOA), which is celebrating forty five years of service, hosted the Rotary District 7020 Governor, Haresh Ramchandani, at their weekly dinner. District 7020 includes Clubs in The Bahamas, Haiti, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Virgin Islands, and others. Mr. Ramchandani was greeted at the airport and visited the island’s Interact Clubs before joining Rotarians for their regular meeting.
Mr. Ramchandani commended the Club for its forty five years of charitable excellence as well as its focus and passion for youth projects. He reiterated Rotary International’s largest goal, eradicating Polio, and said he and many other believe this will be the year the disease is finally wiped from the face of the earth.
Mr. Ramchandani was excited about changes in Rotary this year which give Clubs more flexibility in how they conduct meetings. He urged the Club to grow and invite new members so that even more good could be done in the community and around the world.
The Rotary Club of Abaco has many ongoing and yearly projects within the community. These include Christmas food parcels, donations of school supplies, town and coastal cleanups, blood drives, scholarship sponsorships, disaster and hurricane relief, senior citizen luncheons, career fairs and more
