Charter Night of Portsmouth Rotary a Big Success


This was the event we were waiting for. The night that we were celebrating the official recognition by Rotary Int'l of our new Rotary Club in Portsmouth.

Strictly spoken we were chartered on September 12, 2013, the day at which the president of Rotary International signed the papers to confirm that we are now an independent member of the worldwide Rotary family, but November 30 was the big celebration.
His Excellency Charles Savarin, President of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Honorable Ambroise George, Acting Prime Minister, Mrs. Laura Quentral-Thomas, Past District Governor of Rotary District 7030, and Mr. Robert Tonge, President of the Rotary Club of Dominica were all present to witness the presentation of the charter document to the first President of the Rotary Club of Portsmouth, Daniel C. Hopkins.

Some 130 guests enjoyed and excellend dinner served by Katherine's Restaurant and Catering Service, while DJ Kelvin, keyboard artist Aldayne Green, and Mel-C and Ti Orkest entertained us with excellent music.

Shortly we will publish a more extensive write-up of this successful evening. For now, just have a look at 80+ pictures to get a look and feel of the satified Rotariand and guests in the Officer's Quarters of Fort Shirley at the Cabrits National Park in Portsmouth, Dominica.
