Four students and one preschool will find starting the new school year much more pleasant and better equipped.
The Lions Club of Dominica in its drive to ensure that as many as possible are assisted sought to do just that by painting the outside of the Canefield Preschool on August 19, 2017. The students will return to brighter atmosphere in the building which was painted a bright green, orange and a rusty red. The Principle of the School thanked the club and looked forward to a continued relationship with the Club. The Club has assisted the school on numerous occasions in the past.
Four students will also return to school better prepared and ready to begin lessons. The Club continued in its presentation of the Lion Joseph Liburd Memorial Scholarship to Daniella Carriere, a student of the Goodwill Secondary School who will be entering 2nd form, while Peter Elwin is the first form recipient of the Scholarship. Assistance was also given to Ronnie George, a first form student of the Castle Bruce Secondary School and Danny Romain a first form student of the Dominica Grammar School. The Lion Joseph Liburd Memorial Scholarship is in memory of Lion Joseph Liburd, a charter member of the Lions Club of Dominica from its inception in 1968, who passed away in 2016. The Scholarship covers the cost of school text books and other supplies, uniform, and school fees while the other student was assisted with all text books and some school supplies.
The Club will continue to provide assistance whenever possible and it looking forward to a productive year in anticipation on its 50th Anniversary of Service in March 2017.
