Club Stories
BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, 21 April 2017:  It is just over 2 months before the start of the new Rotary Year 2017-2018 and within a few days the President Elect (PE) and Secretary Elect (SE) of the Rotary Club of Liamuiga (RCL), Chad Allen and Dr. Cherese Godwin, will join other PEs and SEs from Rotary District 7030 in Trinidad for the Presidents & Secretaries Elect Training (PETS) and District Conference being held 26-29 April 2017.  These sessions are being attended by PEs and SEs of the over seventy (70) Rotary Clubs within Rotary District 7030 (Southern Caribbean) and Assistant District Governors Elect (AGEs) of the countries/territories within the District. 
 
Rotary District 7030 covers the Southern Caribbean and part of South America and includes Antigua, Aruba, Barbados, Bonaire, Curaçao, Dominica, French Guiana, Grenada with Carriacou & Petite Martinique, Guadeloupe & Marie Galante, Guyana, Martinique, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad & Tobago.
 
For the first time this year the training for officers will be a Joint Rotary and Rotaract Training, rather than different training sessions at different times of the year, which will see Officers of the Rotaract Clubs in the District also being trained in Trinidad.  President Elect Tanisha Mills of the recently formed Rotaract Club of Nevis (RCN) will travel with the RCL Officers to Trinidad for training.  The RCN, which was chartered by Rotary International (RI) on 19 December 2015, is sponsored by the RCL and, like other Rotaract Clubs worldwide, is for persons between the ages of 18 and 30 years old, more or less a younger version of Rotary Clubs.  The Clubs that make up the different branches of Rotary provide humanitarian service, promote high ethical standards in personal and professional lives, and encourage peace and goodwill.
 
PETS Training is a very important Event on the Calendar of each Rotary District and that of Rotary International (RI) as it is the time when the New Officers receive the training necessary for them to effectively carry out their mandate for the upcoming Rotary Year. 
 
The theme for the next Rotary Year, 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018, is “Rotary: Making a Difference”.  Rotary International President Elect (RIPE), Ian Riseley, in unveiling the new theme at the International Assembly for District Governors worldwide in January 2017 said, "Making a difference is an expression you hear all the time about Rotary, the opportunities that we have and the things that we do.  And that is why we are all here, at this assembly. To make a difference: to our world, to our communities, and in the lives of others. And in 2017-18, that will not only be our goal, but our theme — Rotary: Making a Difference.”
 
He continued, “What kind of a difference each club and each Rotarian chooses to make will always be their own decision.  But we are united in our organization and its common principles: our insistence on ethics and our commitment to Service Above Self.”
 
As the Rotary Club of Liamuiga and the Rotaract Club of Nevis join with their District Member Clubs to satisfy the request of RIPE Ian to continue “making a difference to our communities, our countries, and our world”, we look forward to the continued unwavering support of corporate St Kitts & Nevis and that of the citizens and residents of the Federation.
 
The New Boards of all Rotary and Rotaract Clubs worldwide take up duties on 1 July each year.
Basseterre, St. Kitts:  21 April 2017 – The Charles A Halbert Public Library at Cunningham Avenue in Basseterre conducted its Annual Easter Read-A-Thon under the theme “Open A Book, Find A Treasure” during the period 10-13 April 2017.  The Prize Giving Ceremony for this group of bright ‘reading’ youngsters was held on Friday, 21 April 2017 at the Library.
 
The Ceremony was attended by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education, Youth, Sports & Culture, Honourable.Shawn Richards, who assisted with the presentation of prizes; presenter of the keynote address, Mr. Loughlin Tatem; and representatives of various sponsors including President of the Rotary Club of Liamuiga (RCL), Carol Phillips, and Nordia Demming of St. Christopher Air & Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) who assisted with the presentation of trophies, certificates, etc.
 
Mrs. Petrina Clarke-Whyte, Acting Librarian, in her appeal to the RCL expressed the view that the Easter Read-A-Thon contributed towards ensuring that the children of St. Kitts became equipped for a brighter future.
 
Participants competed in 2 categories – the Junior Category for ages 7 to 9 years old and the Senior Category for ages 10 to 12 years old.  This year there were 23 participants in the Junior Category and 18 in the Senior Category.  While the emphasis was on reading books, participants also had to prepare responses in relation to what was read and were involved in some other related activities for which they earned points.  The top 3 winners in the 2 categories were:
 
Junior Category
1st – Josiah Davis – 9 years old – 81 points
2nd – Aarya Mungli – 8 years old 81 points
3rd – Joanna Thompson – 9 years old – 78 points
 
Even though Master Josiah and Missy Aarya earned the same number of points, Josiah was awarded the top prize because he read 38 books as against 34 books read by Aarya.
 
Senior Category
1st Daniel Thompson – 12 years old – 56 points
2nd – Ayanna Blanchard – 10 years old – 55.5 points
3rd – Shaquana Moses – 10 years old – 53 points
 
Master Josiah Davis was also adjudged the Overall Winner and, in addition to earning a trophy from the RCL for being the winner of the Junior Category, he also earned an Overall Winner’s Trophy and the right to have his name engraved on the Charles A. Halbert Public Library Perpetual Easter Read-A-Thon Plaque, also sponsored by the RCL.  Master Daniel Thompson was awarded a trophy from the RCL for winning the Senior Category.
 
In his keynote address to the attendees Mr. Loughlin Tatem proposed several ideas for consideration by the Library for future implementation, such as, having video recordings of important events taking place in the Federation available for researchers.
 
The Rotary Club of Liamuiga thanks the staff of the Charles A. Halbert Public Library for affording the Club the opportunity to be involved in this educational initiative for the Primary School Students of St. Kitts for the seventh consecutive year.
 

Basseterre, St. Kitts:  6 April 2017 – After a 2 year hiatus the Rotary Club of Liamuiga (RCL) Talent Search Competition for Primary and High Schools was brought back to be included in the Club’s Programme of Activities for the current Rotary Year, which runs from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017.  It was excitement galore when the talents of the children and teenagers were unveiled at the Finals of the Competition at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium on the evening of Wednesday, 5 April 2017! 

 

The very loud responses of some audience members in support of their participants was reward in itself for the significant amount of work involved in the administration, preparation, production and execution of RCL Talent Search Competition 2017!

 

The RCL has proven yet again that talent in the arts is very much alive and well within Federation!

 

Participants at the Primary School Level competed in Dance, Poetry and Vocal Music while High School participants competed in Dance, Instrumental Music and Vocal Music.  There were several outstanding performances in all categories, however, the adjudged winners in the various categories were as follows:

High Schools

Prizes were presented to the top 3 participants in all categories.  The first place winners were also awarded trophies, however, with the tie for first place in the High School Vocal Music category, Miss Christianne Skerritt of Immaculate conception will have to wait a while before actually receiving her trophy.  She was however allowed to take pictures with her family members, who were present for the Competition, holding the trophy for the category.  In the group picture of first place winners both Miss Skerritt and Miss Drenyqua Samuel of Virchilds High held the trophy for the Vocal Music High School category. 

 

This year was a time for ties and firsts!  It must be noted that for this Competition, which started in 2005, it was the first time that there has been ties in any categories.  In addition to the tie mentioned above, this year also saw another tie, for second place, in the Primary School Dance Segment between Mellita Dunrod of Cayon Primary and Jahzara Greene of Dieppe Bay Primary.  But for the fact that she lost points for exceeding the allotted time, Miss Danecia Henry of Saddlers Secondary would have also tied with Miss Alecia Mills-Nisbett of Washington Archibald High in the Vocal Music Category, behind the two participants who tied for the first place.
