Rotaract Blue Cayman Islands Goes Coastal

| 23/10/2008

(CNS): The Ivory Sands Point at Cayman Kai beach located in North Side, often referred to as “Jesus Beach”, recently got a much needed facelift from the members of the Rotaract Blue Club of the Cayman Islands. The club participated in a Rotaract 7020 District initiative to clean up beaches in the region.

The project was spearheaded by Assistant District Rotaract Representative, Dorothy Scott, and was met with great support from the local Rotaract clubs. Rotaract Blue’s focus on this particular area resulted in twenty-five 30-gallon sized bags of garbage and debris being collected.

Director of the Community Service committee for Rotaract Blue, Luigi Moxam said, “This area is such an important part of what makes North Side and Cayman Kai so unique and relaxing. We were amazed at the amount of litter that was collected from the beach, and encourage patrons of this beach and the general public to be more considerate and conscious of the natural environment of our beloved islands. The club plans to continue with this initiative and will execute other projects geared towards raising environmental awareness.”

The club was proud to have 16 volunteers on hand for the project and celebrated the success of the clean up with a small fellowship at Over the Edge in Old Man Bay, where members took the opportunity to encourage others to join the community service clubs. Rotaract Blue would like to extend special thanks to Stan Zukin, nearby home owner and fellow Rotarian from Pennsylvania, who also came out to lend a hand with the clean up.

Rotaract is a programme which is recognized on an international level and is designed for young professionals who want to make a difference. Rotaract Blue is one of the newest Rotaract initiatives in the Caribbean. We are proudly sponsored by Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central and under their guidance we have become the second established Rotaract Club in the Cayman Islands.
