A release from the group on Thursday, (22nd September, 2011), revealed that in keeping with its yearlong theme to “reach out and embrace humanity”, the Rotaract Club of St. Kitts celebrated National Heroes Day, September 16th 2011, with the residents of the Cardin Home.
The Cardin Home is a Special Care Facility for the Elderly and Mentally Challenged. Its primary goal is to provide optimal care for the elderly and mentally challenged in a safe and secure environment.
Rotoract, which is the youth arm of Rotary, hosted the Breakfast Retreat for over seventy five (75) persons, who were said to have enjoyed a delicious spread that included elements of the National Dish and a fresh fruit platter, prepared, and served by its members.
Immediately following the feast, the holiday was spent in fellowship, in an atmosphere filled with laughter, as well as, entertainment, much to the delight of the appreciative men and women who were grateful for the opportunity to be recognized as ‘heroes and sheroes’ of the thoughtful gesture.
The management team of the Health Care Facility that warmly welcomed the idea to organize the project, expressed gratitude to the club for ensuring that the activity remains a fixture on its calendar to observe the contributions of its many residents to the Community.
The Rotaract Club of St. Kitts was officially charted on July 1st 1986, with the vision and guidance of Rotarians Charles Wilkin and William Dore of the Rotary Club of St. Kitts.
