Rudolph Seaton is new Rotary Club of Negril president
Rudolph Seaton has been installed as president of the Rotary Club of Negril.
The installation ceremony was held at the Seastar Inn in West End, Negril, recently.
Seaton is a superintendent in the Jamaica Fire Brigade and a justice of the peace.
He has been a member of the club for just two years and has been designated a Paul Harris fellow, a recognition presented to Rotarians who have contributed, or who have contributions made in their name of US$1,000 to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
"One of the things that we want to do is to increase membership. We are a small club with 22 members and, of course, we do a lot of work. We must increase our membership. We have been doing a lot of work, but a lot of persons may not really know what Rotary is, so we want to get more involved in the communities," Seaton told WESTERN STAR after the ceremony.
The mission of the Rotary Club of Negril is to bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian services and advance peace and goodwill through, among other things, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty through its various projects.
Outgoing President Ken Cooney urged the members to continue their humanitarian work of the club.
"Our club benefits greatly from people who come to Negril and volunteer their time to support our programmes ... . By yourself, you can do so much, but together you can do so much more," he said.
