Service above self!’ The motto of Rotary International was recognized throughout The Rotaract Club of Antigua’s annual installation and awards ceremony last weekend. Club members, guests, supporters and Rotarians were all gathered on Sunday June 30th at the Hodges Bay Club to witness the exit of the 2018-2019 board and the installation of the new one.
