ACP Dean also highlighted the many successes being made by the force and reminded Rotarians that the business of fighting crime is not for the police alone, but it involves the participation of all citizens and residents alike.

The Rotary Club of South East Nassau has been in existence for 39 years and is led by its President Dr. Bridgette Rolle, who shares in the global vision of Rotary International, ‘Service Above Self.’

As the club’s newest president Dr. Rolle hopes to continue with ongoing club projects such as: the award winning Baby Think It Over Project, where electronic babies are placed in high schools to prevent teenage pregnancy; the Elizabeth Estates Backyard Gardening Project; the establishment of a Community Corp in Cat Island; the successful Get Moving Bahamas healthy living campaign where Rotarians assisted the ACE Diabetics to promote healthy lifestyles; the donation of a Defibrillator to Doctor’s Hospital; the building of a Gazebo at the Naomi Christie Retirement Home and many more projects.

The club has also embraced the countries youth, and to this end has sponsored the Rotaract Club of South East Nassau Centennial; Two Interact Clubs, one at St. Andrew’s High School and the other at Doris Johnson High School; and One Earlyact Club located at Columbus Primary.

The club also regularly assists families identified by the Department of Social Services with meal packages and hot meals. There is a ‘Girls at Risk’ Mentoring Program where young girls are identified and given support. Additionally, the club supports the Salvation Army, the Cancer Society and the HIV/AIDS Secretariat with their programs.

Finally, Dr. Rolle and her team will continue to work within the ambit of DG Felix Stubbs’s mandate: “From Success to Significance” and the overall Rotary International Theme: “Be a Gift to the World.”
