Rotary Club of St Martin Sunrise brings Christmas Cheer to New Start Foundation


PHILIPSBURG, ST MAARTEN, —  This past Saturday, December 12th, the Sunrise Rotary Club decided to share some Christmas joy with the children from the New Start Foundation. The Christmas tree lighting was a delight to the children. Service Club Director, Ms. Agnes Kapoor enlisted the help and support of a group of children from the Indian community to participate in the fun and gift giving to the residents.

President Marcellia Henry, Service Director, Ms. Agnes Kapoor and the members of the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise would like to thank the Gurukul Group and Ms. Divina Mirpuri for enlisting the support of the parents and the children from the Indian community together with the children from New Start for a fun evening.  We would also like to thank the students from the Sundial Interact Club for their support in making the day a fun experience for the kids.

There were lots of food and treat and gift and games. The kids enjoyed the making of snow man and drawing a Christmas scene as an icebreaker. A good time was had by all and we look forward to more activities of that nature in the future. We want to commend Mr. & Mrs. Benjamin who run the home for the amount of love, dedication and provision of such a wonderful family environment for our children.

This is the fourth year that the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise has organized its annual tree lightning activity.  Each year a different foster home is selected, and the event is held at the home to bring lots of cheers and smiles to the children at the foster home.

Sunrise Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at the Ginger Bread Café Restaurant  at the Bel Air Hotel  at 7:00AM to 8:00AM
