DESPITE the threat of rain, the Rotary Club of St Andrew North's annual all-inclusive family fun day — Chillin' on the Greens — held at the Hayfield Country Club, in St Catherine recently, was a success.
"It was a wonderful day... Over all it was good," said Glaister Ricketts, the club's president elect and fun day chairman.
Ricketts said the turnout was approximately 100 fewer than last year's of 600, but that did not take away from the event.
"The fellowship was great and people attending participated in the family-oriented activities on hand," the president-elect said.
Patrons battled for prizes in football competition, musical chairs, relays, hoola hoops and karaoke while enjoying the ambience of the picturesque property. Children enjoyed rides, swings and bounce-a-bouts.
Proceeds from the fun day are to assist the Meadowbrook High School in St Andrew in lowering its energy costs.
"The first phase of this project is retro-fit the institution throughout by installing energy-efficient fixtures," Ricketts told the Jamaica Observer.
Since its inception in 1987, the Rotary Club of St Andrew North has built a workshop at the Jamaica Society for the Blind; established a computer lab at Meadowbrook High School in St Andrew; established a physics and biology lab at Oberlin High School; donated baking equipment to National Children's Home; and, implemented a road safety campaign across the island.
