COLE BAY: Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunset recently recognized seven youth groups for their exemplary performance and outstanding contributions to the community and for exemplifying the Rotary ideal of “Service Above Self”.
Recognised by the club were Teen Times newspaper, Voice of the Youth St. Maarten Foundation, St. Maarten Promoting Young Ambassadors Foundation, St. Maarten Alpha Leo Club – all from the Dutch side of the island, and Leo Club Safari, Madtwoz Family Association, and Jeunesse Soualiga organizations from the French side.
The Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunset felt that it should not only celebrate Rotary’s direct youth programs but highlight those in the community who continue to go above and beyond the call of duty to make the world a better place.
The club considers each award recipient as the island’s unsung heroes and I encourage every young person who is not a part of any organization to consider joining any of these youth groups and be the change you wish to see in the world.
