Rotary Portsmouth Meets Rotary Willemstad, CuraƧao
Secret Bay, the corporate sponsor of the Rotary Club of Portsmouth helped to organize a nice little event.
Last Wednesday the Rotary Club of Portsmouth, Dominica, was invited for a Rotary banner exchange at Secret Bay with their guest Mr. Alexander Galarraga of Booking Success and his partner Monica. Mr. Galarraga is a member of the Rotary Club in Willemstad which he joined about a year ago. It's the small Dutch-speaking club, next to the bigger Rotary Club of Willemstad, somewhat similar to our situation here in Dominica: a small and active club alongside the big traditional club.
A delegation of Rotary Portsmouth went to Secret Bay for the appointment. We started introducing ourselves in English, but it soon turned out that everyone spoke Dutch! We had some nice conversations and the banner exchange.
We'll meet again soon, possibly already at the District Conference in St. Kitts and Nevis, next year in April.
Thanks very much to our corporate member Rotarian Dinesh Kissoon, general manager of Secret Bay, for organizing this banner exchange. We hope to have many more visits like this to the beautiful premises of our corporate sponsor.
