Rotary's Vision:
"Together we see a world where people unite and take action, to create lasting change - across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves".

Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

The Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Official Presentation of Wheel Chairs

Together, we can do so much more.

Saint Lucia Hotel & Tourism Association, through their Tourism Enhancement Fund financed the purchase of approximately 270 wheelchairs for those most in need in Saint Lucia.
The project was conceived by the Rotary Club of Gros Islet back in May 2018.  Rotary Club of Saint Lucia through PP Konrad Wagner, who is a member of the Hotel Association, suggested the project to the executive of the Association and the idea was favourably received. 
Gros Islet Rotary had commenced discussions with the Wheelchair Foundation who had agreed to assist with meeting up to half of the cost of a 40 foot container of wheelchairs.  With the assistance of the Wheelchair Foundation, we were able to secure the best possible price for the chairs.
PP Konrad worked tirelessly to bring the project to fruition.  On Saturday July 13th a few of the members of the Rotary Club of Saint Lucia, ably supported by your editor representing  RC Gros Islet, destuffed the 40 foot container.

On Wednesday July 17th, the President of the Hotel & Tourism Association, Mrs. Carolyn Troubetzkoy, along with executive member Mr. John Mathurin and other officials from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Social Transformation, including the Honorable Minister, Leonard (Spider) Montoute, were on hand to mark the start of the distribution phase of the chairs.
The Distribution of the Chairs will be carried out by the Rotary Clubs of Gros Islet and Saint Lucia over the next couple of weeks.
This is a prime example of cooperation between the Rotary Club of Saint Lucia and the Rotary Club of Gros Islet as we join forces with partner organizations - The Tourism Development Fund, and the World Wheelchair Foundation,  to bring badly needed assistance to so many Saint Lucians.

What Happens When You Say Yes to Rotary
Extracted from an article in the August issue of The Rotarian
Rotary Club of Basse Terre, Guadeloupe
After Dominique Vénéré became governor of District 7030 in July 2018, she got a crash course in international relations and comparative politics. Her district encompasses southern Caribbean islands and several South American countries, and it has a mix of mostly French and English speakers.

“I soon realized how different Guadeloupe, which is still part of France, is from other former colonies such as Antigua and Barbuda and Guyana,” she says. “Now I am ready to develop relationships with the surrounding countries rather than remaining turned toward France
and Europe.”

As district governor, Vénéré had the opportunity to meet with heads of state. After Hurricane Maria, she talked at length with Dominica’s president, Charles Savarin, about recovery efforts as well as other economic and societal issues. To top it off, she also attended the country’s festivities for the 40th anniversary of its independence.
“Hearing the crowd in a stadium sing their national anthem sent shivers down my spine.” 

Looking Ahead
On Tuesday July 23rd.  we will hold the first Club Assembly of this Rotary year at 6.00pm at Windjammer Landing.  This promises to be a fun, informative meeting but it is  a members only meeting so please do not bring guests.  
We will consider the plans for the year and share our ideas to make this year rewarding for all members while we Connect with members and the community and inspire others by being People of Action.  We have a few rules that we would suggest:   Simple but effective.  Remember that we follow the Four Way Test in all that we Think, Say or Do.
On Saturday July 27th ALL HANDS ON DECK  President Joel has issued the call to action and we will be collecting and distributing wheel chairs on that day.  This is YOUR chance to be a part of the action, to truly be able to say - WE ARE PEOPLE OF ACTION as we have fun together while we restore the dignity to the lives of so many less fortunate people who are living without mobility.  Come and make a difference.  
We need your pick ups, we need your local knowledge, we need you to Connect and be the inspiration to those whos lives we touch.
We will link up with the Satellite Club members in the South and we plan to make this Service through fellowship.  Be there, be a part of the project as we make lasting change in our communities, and in ourselves.
On August 1st which falls on a Thursday and is a public holiday, we will have a fun filled fellowship at the home of Rtn. Lenny at Cap Estate.  It is a Bahamian Party  
    Brother Lenny knows how to throw a party!!  Lets have fun together.  
2.30 pm to 5.00 pm  Bring what you drink with enough to share.  Cost $50 for Adults and $20 for Children.  Payments are due by this Tuesday, July 23rd.  RSVP to
