District 7030 News & Stories
In order to set the stage for the history of District 7030, I have taken the liberty of venturing even further back in time, to the origins of Rotary in the Caribbean.  Rotary was present in Cuba from 1916 to 1979 when it was suspended.  Cuba was the host Country for the 1940 Rotary International Convention.  By 1957 Cuba had 58 Rotary Clubs with 1,800 members.

Joining forces for new mammogrophy device Foundation Prevention
 
WILLEMSTAD – Rotary Clubs announced their support for a new mammography device for the Prevention Foundation or Fundashon Prevenshon (FP)yesterday, during the start of the Rotary Walking Dinner.

3D mammography
The wish of FP is to acquire a Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (tomo) device, also known as 3D mammography. This revolutionary technology allows for faster and more accurate mammographies with less exposure to radation in comparrison to a 2D mammogram. The device is also safer and less invasive for customers.

Rotary Club of Port of Spain
Report on Media Covered Event
Date: March 13th 2018
Location: Goodwill Industries, Port of Spain (Regular meeting place of RCPOS)
Meeting Topic: Media launch of ‘Rotary Games’
Details:
The Rotary Club of Port of Spain (RCPOS), in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, hosts an annual athletics meet for students of Primary Schools in the Port of Spain educational district.
This year was RCPOS’s 30th anniversary of hosting the games. Many national level athletes were scouted at these games over the years including Olympians Michelle Lee-Ahye and Jehue Gordon.
Prior to the games, RCPOS hosts a media launch to introduce the games to the media to help drive coverage of the actual event and to raise awareness of the young athletes of our community and the country.
At this year’s launch, hosted during our weekly luncheon at Goodwill Industries, RCPOS had media from many of Trinidad’s media houses including the Guardian Media Group and Newsday newspapers.
RCPOS spoke extensively at this event about the Club’s longstanding relationship with the games and the role that athletics plays in shaping the young persons of the country. We also spoke about Rotary as a whole and explained some of the Rotary traditions for our sponsors and media in attendance.
The event and the games themselves generated significant press coverage in Trinidad’s 3 daily newspapers. Examples of this coverage can be found below.
