Rotary Brings Christmas Joy to Children

Rotary Brings Christmas Joy to ChildrenAntigua St. John's - Over 200 special guests benefitted from the Rotary Club of Antigua's annual Children’s Christmas Party on Saturday, December 7, at the Rotary House.

Each year, students are selected based on the Ministry of Education's recommendations. This year’s guests were from the TN Kirnon, Potters Primary, Cedar Grove Primary, Jennings Primary, Golden Grove Primary, Villa Primary, Bendals Primary, Sea View Farm Primary, Five Islands Primary, Greenbay Primary, and Bethesda Primary.

Rotarians volunteered their time and effort to celebrate this special occasion with the children by making balloons and hosting games. The 250 special guests were thrilled with entertainment including Disney characters, face painting, balloons, music, games, and the bounce castle. Each child received a snack, ice cream, and a gift from Santa Claus, who arrived on the fire truck.

A release from the Rotarians said the success of the Children's Christmas Party could not be possible without the assistance from Tropical Shipping, Royal Bank of Canada, KPMG, Townhouse Mega Store, LIME, Paradise Boat Sales, Antigua Barbuda Transport Board, Antigua National Tours, Visual Echo, and the West Indies Oil Company.

Members of the Club will travel to Barbuda on Saturday, December 14, for a repeat party for 250 children there. This event has been a staple on the Rotary Club of Antigua calendar for over 20 years.

It's amazing that the prime minister can find the time to spend the entire day playing Santa for the children? I thought that he had so much to do. Anyway, it's Christmas season and it's a wonderful thing to get the children's smiles.
