Rotaracters were engaged over the weekend in Belize City with park rehabilitation projects. Their first project was St Ignatius Primary School on Euphrates Avenue where they installed a swing set. Their next stop was at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where did some renovations to the park set catered for those in the Pediatric Ward. Love News stopped by the KHMH on Saturday and spoke to the Rotaract President, Jaylen Good.
Jaylen Good, Rotaract President: “So what’s happening is that the Rotaract Club of Belize City we adopted this park some years ago after it was established by our sponsor club the Rotary Club of Belize and we’ve gotten with the help of the Rotarians of Canada, I believe the club is Edmonton, they donated this playground set for us to replace the existing one that was already there. So unfortunately the Rotaractors that were already working on the build they are leaving today but there will be a grand opening on Monday whereby they will be doing this one and they had a set up over at St.Ignatius and there was one other at Stella Maris Primary School as well. Since the assembly has already been done what we are basically doing is trying to fill up the land area and we’ll also be working to repaint the picnic tables that are out here as well and some time later on during the year we will return again to do a complete face lift of the inside, doing a paint job and power washing the stuff as well.”
Reporter: Is this the only park that you guys are working on currently ?
Jaylen Good, Rotaract President: “For us my Rotaract Club this is the only park because we adopted this one but the club from Canada as I mentioned they did one at St.Ignatius Primary School. Last year they came we helped them out with the one at St.Lukes and the year before that they did one at St.Martins I believe.”
Rotaract is also doing works in Belmopan and in the south.
