Dr. Hervé Honoré – RI 7030 District Governor

Dr. Hervé Honoré is the Rotary International District 7030 Governor from Martinique for all islands from St. Kitts-Nevis to French Guiana. He made his official visit to the Montserrat Rotary club on November 19, 2013 accompanied by his Assistant District Governor for Antigua and Montserrat, Dr. Errol Samuel.

The two District head Rotarians during their paid courtesy calls on His Excellency Governor Davis and Premier the Honorable Ruben T. Meade Premier Meade while joining and holding discussions with the local clubs and their two junior extensions of the club, Rotaract and Interact.

Dr. Honoré in a press briefing informed that he was obliged to visit each club, whose membership comprise, businesspersons and professionals at least once a year. He said his visit is mainly to see what kind of support the club needs from the District and Rotary International (RI) “to help them to better work for their communities.” This allowed him the opportunity to see what the club is doing and how to help for better success in their projects.

He happily reported that he was, “pleased to see that there is a continuity between the Rotaract in Montserrat and the Senior Rotary,” pointing out that one of the requests by the Club was to receive, “training support to be sure that they will have a continuity in processing the Rotary club of Montserrat.”

The DG said there 34,000 clubs making up RI. Then there is the Rotary Foundation (RF), “our bank.” He explained, “We raise money with the RF, and we use this money to support communities. What Rotarians for Montserrat ask me is to know more knowledge about the RF grants they can receive, and how the Foundation can support them for the communities in Montserrat.”

Dr. Samuels commenting generally on Rotary International, said, “volunteers must be able to devote allot of time to the work of the Rotary Club.”

“One of the elements of the Rotary is that you have to have time to carry out the work of Rotary and I think in a number of cases that is more endurance than the cost, because it means that you have to leave your business, leave your family, because the work of Rotary is extensive. I think in terms of costs, it’s not a deterrent as opposed to the time that one has to not only attend meetings, but also putting back into the community in terms of community service.”

They both also met with The Board of Directors of the Rotary Club of Montserrat, the general membership of the club and its youth arms the Rotaract and Interact Club.
