#RotaDeed for February 2016
How do we do this you ask? We would love for everyone to do something kind (a good deed) for another person during the month of February and post about it via social media while asking a friend to do the same. We will call this a #RotaDeed.
We also visited Cayman Brac and assisted with Basketball Games and Painted a community center.
Our School Supply-A-thon drive was an immense success we raised funds to help children with their school supplies for the year.
We continue to donate blood to assist with saving lives, come out and donate blood with us and save up to three lives.
I would like to give you all a warm welcome to the Rotary year 2015 - 2016. First of all, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Hov.. Actually its just Matt. As this year's president, I have the pleasure of serving the community and our Rotaract Club of Grand Cayman or as we call it RCGC. The first thing I would like to do is introduce our Rotaract Board for the year.As we start this new year, I would like to take a step back and look at the achievements of our past year such as School Supply-A-Thon, Brown Paper Bag Project, Meals On Wheels, Beach Clean Ups, and so many more... I look forward to continuing our annual projects:School Supply-A-Thon,which has gotten off to a great start thanks to the gracious donation from Appleby! This year we aim to raise funds to donate to the Department of Children and Family Services, which will ensure students can have the necessary tools to learn and become better students.Brown Paper Bag, which each month takes a meal to the Mental Health Court ensuring the attendees have at least one healthy meal with a positive message attached.We are off to a fast start within the club as well; our annual boat cruise We On A Boat is scheduled for July 19th, the registration is open for Rotarians, Rotaractors, and Guests! Our Bi-Annual Club Survey has already kicked off and will close on July 18th with a Club Forum.This organization is built on hard work, bringing out the best of ourselves, the desire to do better every time, and of course, fun...which we plan on having a lot of! A friend and amazing Rotaractor by the name of David Postic said "If you're not having fun you, you shouldn't be doing it." So let's go out, have fun and have an amazing Rotaract year!

Caybrew Tour Fellowship - February 6th
Orange You Glad...Your Coins Go To A Good Cause!
|Rotaractors took to the supermarkets on Saturday February 7th to help raise funds for Meal on Wheels. Seen here, Rotaract Meals on Wheels Chairperson, Joel Porter and Rotaractor Tian start off the RCGC rotations for the collections drive at Foster’s Food Fair at the airport. #TeamRCGC powered through collections by having two members available for every available shift beginning at 8 am and ending at 6 pm. Meals on Wheels has been an initiative that the Club has been participating in over the past few years. The Club volunteers to assist with delivery routes which usually last no more than 30 minutes. MOW Chair Joel Porter delivers meals every week and members can join him and get involved with the Meals on Wheels Programme at anytime.|
RCGC Blood Drive Begins...
On February 14th RCGC started what will become a year long project. The local blood bank has recently requested assistance with more blood donations.. There is an increase in the need for blood due to more cardiac surgeries and the need to supply blood to three hospitals on island. Community Service Director Pierre Connolly was the first victim - I mean volunteer - to donate blood. Our goal with this project is to provide a constant source of people for the blood bank to draw blood from every 12 weeks.
Welcome to Miami!
President Stephanie and Treasurer Ajoni found themselves amongst Rotarians and Rotaractors of District 7020 this past weekend in Miami for District Leadership Training.The two jet-setted with DRRE Marzeta Bodden, Rotaractor Kelly McGee and Rotaractor Heather Roffey from Rotaract Blue to Miami, Florida for training. They joined other members of the District 7020 who will also be part of the 2015-2016 District Board.
Brown Paper Bag Packing Party
On Saturday 17 January, Director Rosie planned an exciting day full of team building activities to strengthen the cohesiveness of RCGC members. The morning began with a power hour with the board members which allowed each person to identify their leadership personalities. This was followed by lunch as members of the club arrived for the evening portion of the day. After our bellies were filled, the rest of the afternoon consisted of group work, trust exercises and brainstorming activities. The day allowed us to reflect on our strengths and weaknesses as a club and as individuals. After training, the group moved to the informal portion of the day for happy hour at Sidebar, enjoying drinks, nibbles and each other's company.
If you or your organization would like to contribute to this initiative or have any questions on how to get involved with the community through Rotaract, please contact us via any of our social media outlets, website (rotaractky.org) or email Director of Community Service, Pierre Connolly at email@example.com
Happy World Rotaract Week from the Rotaract Club of Grand Cayman!!
RCGC spent some quality time with the dogs at the CI Humane Society on Saturday and took them for much needed walks. As always…they were extremely grateful for the fresh air and attention.
