On Tuesday, Sept. 29, the Rotary Club of St. Croix West honored members in the community who are caregivers to their families and members of the Rotary Club. It was an evening of fellowship with dinner and bingo hosted by the Family of Rotary Committee. The event was held at the Rotary West Community Center in Frederiksted and promised to be a night to remember. Members of the club and guests gathered together to enjoy this wonderful event. President Cheru Ross of the Rotary Club gave opening and welcoming remarks.

Rotary West recognizes that regardless of a caregiver’s particular circumstances, it is a challenging role and one that a person most likely hasn’t been trained to undertake. However, because of their love for the family member, they automatically assume the role of caring for their loved ones and thus should be recognized for their dedication.

Rotary Club of St. Croix West meets at 6 p.m., every Tuesday, at the Rotary West Community Center in Frederiksted.
