A big thank you goes out to shoppers four and five rows deep, who partook in the Rotary Club of Sint Maarten's "Great St Maarten Bazaar" over the weekend. Goods on sale included new and gently-used designer clothing, house wares, books, furniture and plants. As a result of the support given by so many in our community, the day's efforts raised approximately $4,000 that will benefit the pediatric ward of the St Maarten Medical Centre.

Vice President of the Club, Rebecca Low said, "As Rotarians, we are always looking at ways we can help build a stronger St Maarten.  One of those ways is to ensure that we have a world-class hospital.  Through our efforts here, and our upcoming fundraiser on Oasis of the Seas, we plan on making some special donations that will benefit the babies born here."  

Visiting Rotarians from the United States joined together with Club members and high school students from Rotary's Interact Club at Milton Peters College.  The Rotary Club wishes to thank Le Grand Marche and Prime Distributors for their continued support of grassroots organizations in St Maarten, as well as the general public without whose support the many fundraising events, such as "The Great St. Maarten Bazaar" would not be possible.
