"Rotary Interclub Assemblies provide the perfect opportunity for us to come together as a Rotary family in an atmosphere of fellowship and collaboration to exchange ideas, foster partnerships with other clubs and to elevate the discussion in regards to Rotary’s role in our community”, said Mario Smith, Assistant Governor for Rotary Clubs of The Bahamas (East) and event Chairman.

Bryan Knowles, Assistant Governor for Rotary Clubs of The Bahamas (West) added, “The event demonstrated that future Interclub Assemblies will provide the space in which Rotary Bahamas will unite to strengthen our organization and to strengthen our service to our communities and the world.”
