The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC), Guyana’s leading youth
and sports organization on Wednesday last inducted President David Granger as its fifth official Patron.
The President was formally inducted by former Patron Ms. Beverly Harper at a simple but significant ceremony attended by club members who travelled to the Ministry of the Presidency for the historic swearing in.
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster expressed gratitude to the President for accepting to serve as the Club’s Patron for the next five years and noted that he would be following in the footsteps of the late President Hugh Desmond Hoyte, Peter Ramsaroop, June Mendes and Beverly Harper.
As Patron, President Granger would be the public face of the club, a role model to its members and offer advice to its management. The President would also be expected to attend major activities, including the annual award ceremony, prepare Patron’s remarks for all RHTY&SC publications and assist the club to fulfil its mandate in making a positive difference in the lives of youths, the elderly and less fortunate.
The long serving Secretary/CEO traced the achievements of the club over its 25 year history and disclosed that under President Granger’s Patronage, they would be placing special emphasis on its Say No to Crime, Suicide, Drugs and Say Yes to Education/Sports Programme, Charity Outreach, expansion of its cricket section and promotion of sports as an alternative to a life on the road for youths and the development of the Area ‘H’ ground.
Foster expressed confidence that President Granger would lead by example and that the RHTY&SC would continue to maintain its status as Guyana’s best.
Ms. Beverly Harper stated that it was a privilege to serve the club as its fourth Patron. The organisation Ms. Harper noted is quite passionate about its work and very generous with its time, energy and spirit.
The Ansa McAl boss stated that it was an honour to pass on the Patron’s baton to President Granger, a leader who in a short few months has been leading the fight to raising our image internationally, defending our borders and moving us forward to a good life.
Ms. Harper described the RHTYSC as a small entity from a small community doing great things and creating miracles.
