Rotary Clubs of Portsmouth & Dominica raised over $16000 for Haiti during the Charter Night Event of the Rotary Club of Portsmouth at Fort Shirley.

In December 2016 the Rotary Club of Portsmouth celebrated their 3rd Charter Year. As Rotarians believe in service above self the club decided to have a joint fund raising with the Rotary Club of Dominica (Roseau) to help the people of Haiti. The event was a big success and we raised over $16000 !!! (exact amount not verified yet as funds are still coming in.)

Last Sunday, 22nd of February, the Rotary Club of Portsmouth held their first Family Open House at P.A.Y.S., Purple Turtle. The Open House was to enable people of the community to learn what projects our club has done and working on and what our Rotary club stands for.

Music was provided by the Portsmouth band, “Heart Beat”, who donated their time for our event and provided a great show which was enjoyed by everyone. The band also provided a limbo stick that was well tested by many Rotary members and guests, creating a very fun environment.
