#Providenciales, June 27, 2018 – Turks and Caicos – Ten year Rotarian Kym Stubbs takes over as the new President of the Rotary Club of Providenciales with a provoking speech aimed at reminding members the mission of Rotary.

“The first thing that we had to do was to rebuild the park in Grace Bay which was destroyed by the hurricanes. We have in the past done something for government primary schools on the islands, we donated dictionaries. This year we decided to do something a bit different, there was a need for school supplies, so what we decided to do was to donate seven and a half thousand dollars worth of school supplies to all of the government primary schools, so that was distributed to all of the schools on all of the islands.” – Paul Jobling
