To engage our members in a fun activity promoting literacy month, members took to Camana Bay to celebrate the month of literacy and took part in a community Literacy Scavenger Hunt organized by a book store. The hunt took us all over Camana Bay looking for clues. It definitely was a trip down memory lane as many of the answers were some of our favourites from childhood. The day reaffirmed the importance of literacy and a great day was had by those who attended. Bonus - once we completed the hunt and submitted the results we got a 10% discount on our next purchase because we got all the answers correct – and free bookmarks!

We were a little upset with humanity after stumbling upon a picture perfect beach spot littered with garbage. We found everything from chairs, floats, bottles, cans and diapers. Safe to say the beach is used by a wide cross section of society, all dumping their garbage for others to clean up.
 
We're happy to clean the beach whenever needed but, read the sign! Take home your garbage.

We had such a great time at President Louise's house for our retreat that we all forgot to take pictures. Let's talk about being in the moment. Our fun filled retreat was staged as  the special VIP dinner of Dr. Doom. 
 
A brief description of the evening:

Dr. Larry Doom was the heir of the Doom estate and a rather famous chemist. He led a troublesome life full of misery, lies, and deceitful practices. Reflecting upon the past, he decided to host a VIP dinner at his home, the old Doom Mansion, in hopes to resolve the differences with those he had wronged throughout his life. Most of the guests accepted his humble invitation and arrived at the mansion in style to enjoy a delectable dining experience and good company. The evening started out fabulously and Dr. Doom commenced his quest to make amends with his family and past acquaintances. As the evening progressed, Dr. Doom found it difficult to deal with some of his invited guests as in addition to their sordid past with him…many also had serious conflicts with each other! As the evening progressed, tension filled the air and to everyone’s shock, Dr. Doom’s priceless diamond encrusted pterodactyl egg was found missing and in its place was a ransom note for a million dollars! The guests quickly rallied together to investigate whodunit before the thief could get away. The investigators took a few breaks from the stress of the intense investigation to dine on a tasty dinner, play exciting games and to savor on hot chocolate and desserts before coming to a final conclusion of who the naughty thief was!
 
Members acted out the different characters until be discovered who the deceitful culprit was.  The actors did a great job at portraying the roles and we later discovered that it was Dr. Doom's beautiful and elegant niece, Miss Crimson who stole the marvelous egg. 
 
See the different characters below.

Over 200 civil servants took part in a dress down day to support Rotaract Blue’s Open Arms Programme on Thursday, 28 March 2013.

Open Arms promotes non-discrimination for disabled persons and aims to help integrate those living with disabilities into the community while providing support and recognition to persons who care for them.


As part of this year’s programme, Rotaract Blue organized dress down months to raise awareness of the different disorders, and asking companies to wear a specific colour associated with the disorder on any chosen day that represent disorders. For the remaining months, and according to international standards: purple is for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in March, grey for Dyslexia in April, and teal for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in May.


The Honourable Deputy Governor and Head of the Civil Service, Mr. Franz Manderson, JP said, “On behalf of the entire Civil Service, I commend Rotaract Blue on their efforts within the Open Arms Programme and I am pleased that we were able to support persons living with disorders through this initiative. I wish to thank the many Civil Servants who participated in this dress down day. I look forward to the Civil Service participating in similar initiatives in the future, as we work towards becoming more community-minded.”


The Cayman Islands Civil Service, which is the second organisation to participate in the programme, donated a total of CI$1135 to support the fight against ADD in March. Ministry of Finance had the largest number of participants with 46 staff taking part.


Club President Jacqueline Golding-McDonald said, “The response from the Civil Service has been overwhelming.  As Aristotle says: The ultimate value of life depends on awareness and the power of contemplation rather than mere survival – and bringing awareness and promoting non-discrimination is what we aim to do with our Open Arms Programme.”


With over one billion people living with disabilities around the world, Rotaract Blue stands committed to this initiative.

A donation from a local business is assisting Rotaract Blue’s efforts to help the disabled community. 

After a series of dress down days in January, Deloitte recently donated about US$1,000 toward the club’s Open Arms Award Programme. Deloitte also assisted with the donation of five computers for the Sunrise Adult Training Centre. 

Staff at Computer Geekz volunteered time to ensure that the computers have been kept updated and functioning at maximum capacity. 

Recognising the potential value of this partnership, Deloitte’s Managing Partner Stu Sybersma said: “The Deloitte management and staff are pleased to have been able to contribute and I commend Rotaract Blue for introducing the Open Arms Programme to our community. A project like this was much needed and it is a great honour to join the club in their efforts to build awareness about disabilities and honouring those who go that extra mile.” 

Club President Jacqueline Golding-McDonald said: “Assisting the community has always been at the heart of Rotaract Blue and we are grateful to Deloitte for sharing this vision with us. We are confident that their contribution will enhance our awareness in helping to build a stronger community through our Open Arms Programme.” 

The club is encouraging other companies to join the initiative by helping to raise awareness and promote nondiscrimination for the disabled community.  

Companies can organise dress down days by wearing specific colours, which will help represent disorders: blue and yellow for Down’s syndrome, purple for attention deficit disorder, grey for dyslexia and teal for obsessive compulsive disorder.

November 3 2011, Rotaract Blue hosted “Shades of Red”, an annual wine tasting event to benefit the Cayman AIDS Foundation. This annual event utilizes a warm and relaxed atmosphere in an effort to raise awareness about and encourage healthy lifestyle choices that prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.  HIV/AIDS education is one of Rotaract Blue’s key platforms.

This year’s event was hosted at The Brasserie with the theme: “Night in Paris”. Guests were treated to exquisite wines from France specially handpicked by sommeliers Roberto Logioia Dette of Blackbeard’s and Harvey Setterfield of Vino Veritas.

Exotic canapés by Brasserie's culinary team and soft music by Eugenio Leon completed a perfect atmosphere.

The event allowed Rotaract Blue to make a donation of CI$4,000 to the Cayman AIDS Foundation. On receiving the donation, Cherine Usherwood, Vice President of the Cayman AIDS Foundation, expressed deep gratitude and encouraged Rotaract Blue to continue its support of the Foundation.

Jacqueline Golding-McDonald, President of Rotaract Blue, said, “I am happy to see the continued positive results of Shades of Red. The event has allowed us to shed light on a community issue and make an impact in a way that is of great benefit to the Cayman Islands and its people. We are grateful for the momentum that this event has garnered in terms of public support and its ongoing contribution to the fight against HIV/AIDS. Rotaract Blue is proud to be part of the solution.”

 

Rotaract Blue would like to thank the sponsors of Shades of Red: Blackbeard's, Butterfield Bank, Cayman Airways, Cayman National, DART Cayman Islands, David Goddard Photography, dms Broadcasting Ltd., Intec Research Production Services, Island Companies, LIME, Maples, UBS, Voss Water, and The Brasserie. The support of these organisations is invaluable in enhancing the awareness and prevention of HIV/AIDS.

Rotaract Blue is ready to take the baton in an all out effort towards the finish line. The race to end Polio is on the home stretch. We can win.

Polio eradication has been Rotary’s top priority since 1985, with more than $1.2 billion contributed to the effort and two billion children vaccinated. In response to the two $355 million Gates Foundation grants, Rotary will raise $200 million in matchi...ng funds and must be completed by 30 June 2012. We are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease and we have $20 million to go.

Rotaract Blue is challenging the Rotaractors and Rotarians of the world to stand up and be part of Rotaract Blue’s 1,000 Pennies for Polio. Rotaract Blue has already contributed to the cause and now we challenge all Rotary and Rotaract clubs of the Cayman Islands to do the same. When we have done our part to move closer to the eradication of Polio, we will challenge district 7020 to take the vow. And then, the world!

We are “this close”. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions. Let us support this global initiative by giving '1,000 Pennies for Polio'. Take the Vow. End Polio now. $10 to change the world forever. If you have already taken the vow to end Polio now, thank you on behalf of the children of the world.
