Bahamas National Trust volunteers enjoyed a tasty treat during their clean up at Harold and Wilson Ponds last Saturday as RCEN were on site to serve up their World Famous Hamburgers.
The first of what is hoped to be an annual event for the BNT was aimed at engaging the local communities of Pride Estates 1 & 2 in maintaining this important wetland area that sits on their doorstep. RCEN has a deep affiliation with BNT and this area in particular as we were instrumental in the building of the boardwalk over the ponds many moons ago.
In between Marshalling the troops our Hamburger Van Guru Llewellyn "Unca Loa" Burrows even managed to find time to "Big-Up" RCEN live on the airwaves during a 100 Jamz live radio broadcast.
A great afternoon all round!

As one of his last official presidential jobs, the Rotary Club of East Nassau Past President Elmer Lowe awarded Mayuri Decka with the "Rising Star" award. This award is presented to new members who go above and beyond and show exemplary Rotary characteristics shortly after joining the club. Mayuri responded to the humanitarian need in Nepal and organized a fundraising campaign which ultimately raised over $10,000 for Nepal. The event was so successful that a new club sponsored program was formed, GREAT (Global Rotary East Action Today) which will take charge in emergency situations such as Nepal. The club congratulates Mayuri for her great program and look forward to her continued participation in Rotary.
