(ZIZ News) — Members of the Rotary Club of Liamuiga spent Tuesday afternoon with residents of the Saddlers’ Home for the Elderly.
According to President of the Liamiuga chapter of the Rotary Club, Dr. Marcus Natta, the organization has been presenting lunch to the home’s residents annually on National Heroes’ Day since 2003.
“Once again the Rotary Club of Liamuiga is pleased to be here with the residents for the Saddler’s Home for the Elderly for our annual luncheon. We embarked on this project several years ago and each year we come out on National Heroes Day, fellowship with the Saddlers’ Home or elderly residence, as well as some of the elderly from around the Saddlers’ community. This year is no different and as our T-shirt says, ‘Its Service above Self’, which is the motto of Rotary International and this is a small, small token of appreciation that we can show a section of our community,” Dr. Natta told ZIZ News.
As part of its annual contribution to the home, the Rotary Club of Liamuiga also presents items to make the facility more comfortable for residents. This year a number of decorative pillows, a fan and a wall clock were presented.
“On behalf of the Rotary Club of Liamuiga, we want to present these ten decorative pillows, compliments as well of Costa Cruise Lines and a project that we have with them to the Saddlers’ Home for the Elderly.”
Accepting the gifts on behalf of the home, Zone Four Social Assistance Officer, Francine Pollock, expressed gratitude to the Rotarians for their assistance over the years.
She said, “I would like to say thanks very much on behalf of our ministry to the good donors and the Rotary club for their annual luncheon and for all the good gifts that they have supplied to the home over the years.”
University of Medical and Health Sciences students also made a surprise visit to the home. While there, they socialized with the residents and after the meal offered blood pressure and other basic medical checks.
