Speaker of the National Assembly of Guyana, Dr. Barton Scotland on Friday last congratulated Guyana’s leading Youth and Sports Organisation, the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, on its remarkable success since its formation in 1990 and urged the dynamic club to share with other organisations, the secrets of its success. Delivering the Feature Address at a massive Presentation Ceremony at the St. Francis Community Developers Training Hall, the Speaker noted that Guyana needs more organisations like the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club as the country strives to develop and noted that it would be a blessings if the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, can share its formula of success with every organisation in Guyana.
Dr. Scotland was at the time addressing a capacity audience of hundreds as the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club held its presentation ceremony for its Patron Fund, Gregory Gaskin Memorial Berbice Sports Award, Ansa Mcal Award of Excellence, 27th Annual Cricket Academy, Dolphin Award of Excellence and Top Ten Grade 6 Outstanding Students.
The Club also during the ceremony handed over 13,000 exercise books as part of a massive Say No to Suicide Campaign with the National Milling Company (Namilco). The Speaker also spoke widely on the linkage between youth and sports, while urging the attentive audience which included hundreds of youths, to use education as the root to success. The highly respected Attorney-at-Law and former Diplomat also used the opportunity to inform the audience of the work of the National Assembly in the development of Guyana, while several schools in Berbice received information packages on Parliament.
Secretary/CEO, Hilbert Foster, in response to Dr. Scotland stated that there was no secret to the Club’s success but there was a simple formula that is followed on a daily basis. The formula consists of sheer hard work, visionary and forward thinking leadership, investment in young leaders, faith in God, honesty, belief in the work it does and a strong passion to make a difference in the lives of youths, the elderly and less fortunate. The long serving Secretary/CEO stated that the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, as a general rule, strives to come up with a new visionary idea every month and then work as a unit to make it into reality. Its success on the cricket field, he stated is due to massive investment in every cricketer to make sure that they fulfill their true potential not only in cricket but in the classroom as well. Noting that the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club is the only youth and sports organisation to have ever received a National Award, Foster stated that the Club as a matter of policy assist others as much as possible to fulfill their mandates. The Club, he disclosed also shares its vast experience with other organisations if asked and would continue to do so in the future. What the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club achieves in one week, Foster stated others do not do in a calendar year.
The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, up to the 21st July, has successfully completed 394 out of the 500 programmes/activities it had set itself for 2017. With over five months remaining in the year, Foster expressed confidence that the Club, its eight cricket teams and Over 35 Group would finish 2017 with close to 700 activities.
The Speaker was accompanied by a delegation of fifteen staff members including Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs and the Sergeant at Arms.
