What a good day of fellowship and service. Thank you to all the Team Leads, Partners in Service, Cranberries, Rotarians and members from our sister club who supported our outreach initiatives today. Because of you, our Super Service Saturday was a resounding success!
We kicked things off bright and early with a Breaking Bread Assist at 6:00 a.m. in Queen’s Park. There our Service Soldiers assisted with the serving of breakfast meals for the homeless population in and around Bridgetown.
Moving into the afternoon, the team journeyed to the north of the island for part 2 of Cookies & Canvas from 2 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Farr’s Children’s Home. We broke the ice by asking the teens to describe themselves as a snack. This was followed by freelance painting with an independence theme.
Finally, we executed our long awaited gardening project, Ready, Set, Grow: Add A Little Spice To Your Life from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Service Soldiers were split into two groups, located at Luther Thorne Memorial Primary School and Gordon Cummins District Hospital. While the teams planted the seedlings today, our cranberries have committed to monitor their growth over the next few weeks.
