The Rotary Club of Sint Maarten has had a fantastically successful year making contributions to the betterment of the island, with projects ranging from school tuition scholarships, improvements to school facilities to spending time with our senior citizens and providing breakfasts to young students in need.  Outgoing President Danny Ramchandani said, “this year has been a historic year for our Club with the recent raffle of a beautiful Audi Q5 being the single largest fundraiser in our history.  Come to our Change of Board Celebration Fundraiser to learn more about some the exciting projects that will be funded by this initiative”.

Incoming President, Jeffrey “Soc” Sochrin continued, “the success of the recent car raffle will uniquely position our Club to make a difference in the community in the coming year.  It is my intention to continue so many great initiatives, but also find a way to involve more young people in our service activities by introducing an element of FUN and FELLOWSHIP in everything we do as a Club.   So please contact any Rotarian or email to purchase a ticket to our Rock & Blues Change of Board Celebration on June 20th at Captain Oliver’s.  The fun starts at 7 PM sharp and the entertainment will be great with Gianfranco, Christine Gordon and Church on Monday.  Tickets are just US $100 and include an OPEN BAR and the full Captain Oliver’s GRAND BUFFET.  This is going to be a night to remember”.
