The Rotary Club of St. Andrew, in its 55th year, has a long tradition of service and community engagement. This was on full display with the generous donation of tablets, textbooks, and stationery items to 6 deserving students of the Allman Town Primary.
"This is a changing world; we must be prepared to change with it. The story of Rotary will have to be written again and again." - Paul Harris
To say that membership growth and retention in Rotary is an issue is an understatement. 
Our noble movement of over 1.2 million members and over 35,000 clubs worldwide has a long-standing retention and growth challenge. Members are the heart and pulse of any voluntary organization, and a weak heart or pulse is never a good prognosis for a patient. 
Even with these challenges, Rotary is far from dead. We continue to fulfil our mission to "provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders."
Rotary is sometimes described as a family and this is with good reason. Rotarians render Service Above Self in their various communities and doing so while having fun together in fellowship. This was on full display as several members of the Rotary Club of St. Andrew in Jamaica, led by its president Ammesha Brown, spent an afternoon at one of its member’s homes in fun, family, fellowship and flowers.
It takes time to build a reputation about something and to be known for that something.  In this case the something is the Wheelchair Project of the Rotary Club of St. Andrew which started 19 years ago by 3 “accidents”.

Why I am a Rotarian
I am a Rotarian because I irrevocably believe in the Rotary motto: Service Above Self. I want to serve my people, community, country, and the world in a way that has a positive and meaningful impact. Rotary offers that opportunity through service projects and other philanthropic activities. Some of these projects are geographically borderless, making an individual contribution far-reaching. Rotary also provides an amazing and diverse network of professionals, which is an excellent opportunity for knowledge exchange and great fellowship. I am also able to offer my professional expertise to the club, using my vocation for good, and gain new skills through being active in various committees. I am a Rotarian because I believe in making a difference one person at a time; collectively one community at a time.
