PHILIPSBURG – The American University of the Caribbean (AUC) Phi Chi fraternity students became “Friends of Rotary” by joining hands with The Rotary Club of St. Maarten.
Phi Chi is AUC’s community service fraternity. It is a national medical fraternity with many chapters throughout the United States. Phi Chi works every semester with a local soup kitchen, an orphanage, and is currently working with an elementary school in Phillipsburg to provide the supplies that they need.
“Friends of Rotary” is a program initiated to foster deeper links with people who share the same ideals of service and fellowship, but are unable to commit full rotary membership. “This program will help to strengthen our association and the community through service activities, fundraisers, fellowships and social events,” AUC said in a press release.
President Henna Budhrani welcomed this joint venture by shaking hands with representatives of Phi Chi Foundation Kaitlyn Takack and Uju Ubahand. “We look forward for a great partnership and a great rotary year ahead!” Budhrani said.
