RHTY&SC to document its history
The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club (RHTY&SC) is answering Minister of Sports Dr. Frank Anthony’s call for sport organisations to document their history for future generations. The Club has embarked on a project to publish a 120-page book that would highlight the rich history of Guyana’s leading youth and sports club which was formed in May 1990 by the three-time Guyana and Commonwealth Youth Service Award winning entity, St. Francis Community Developers.
The book would be published at F&H Printers in Georgetown and would be launched later this year. Founder of the club and current Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster would serve as Editor with assistance from Ravi Narine, Royston Lawson, Gregory Rambarran and Franklyn Ross.
Foster explained that the book would inform readers of the history of the club, its early years and struggles and take them on the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club journey from being a mere cricket club to one with over 140 activities/programmes each year.
Programmes and activities are held under the following; sports, education, cultural, charity, community development, youth development, religious and social. The veteran cricket official also disclosed that a section of the book would review his own career as a Sports Administrator and he would share his vast experience so that others could benefit.
The book would be named “The RHTYSC Success Story” and the main aims are:
1) to document the history and achievements of the club;
2) to acknowledge the contribution of the founders and members of the club over the years;
3) to serve as an inspiration to other sport organisations and NGOs;
4) to unearth a new generation of leaders for youth and sports development;
5) to highlight the struggles of the club over the years and how they were overcome;
6) to showcase the outstanding achievers of the club 1990 – 2012 the likes of Assad Fudadin and Royston Crandon;
7) to highlight the contribution of the club’s numerous official sponsors over the years
