Doumeng Installed as Rotary Club of St. Thomas President

July 14, 2006 — Paul Doumeng, general manager of Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, was installed as the 49th president of the Rotary Club of St. Thomas earlier this month.
"Appreciating that I have big shoes to fill following the direction of our previous presidents, I will go forward with a firm commitment and renewed enthusiasm to help benefit our chapter and all who we serve," Doumeng said at the ceremony.
Taking the position of past president is Terrence Robinson. Other positions include Vice President/President-Elect Janette Millin-Young, Club Secretary Roger White, Club Treasurer Debs Crolley and Sergeant At Arms George Blackhall.
In the past ten years, Doumeng has served as director of community service several times. He was vice president/president elect last year.
The Rotary Club of St. Thomas is involved in several community service and community awareness projects, including "Baby Think It Over", which pairs junior high and high school students with a computerized baby doll. Teachers at the schools can determine how well a student cares for the doll by downloading information from the doll.
"The 'Baby Think It Over' program has been very successful because it teaches kids about the responsibilities of having a baby," Doumeng said. "There has been a decrease in teen pregnancy in St. Thomas and we would like to think that our program has contributed to this statistic."
The Rotary Club of St. Thomas is also working with a chapter in South Africa to remove land mines there. The Rotary Club of St. Thomas recently funded a custom-made wheelchair for a Charlotte Amalie High School student.
