Fellow rotarians gathered this week with Premier David Burt the Reverend Dr J Loren Russell, District Governor, to commemorate the Rotary Club’s 100th anniversary of providing service in Bermuda.

A Bermuda cedar tree was planted on Thursday at Botanical Gardens to mark their centennial.

Premier Burt, in his remarks, said they “undoubtedly live by the club mottos of ‘service above self’, and ‘one profits most who serves best’.

“Their consistent support of other institutions, schools and charities with generous donations has not gone unnoticed.

“Moreover, the time, knowledge and expertise their members bring to students and residents have made a significant difference in Bermuda, but also in other jurisdictions,” he added.

“It is fitting to plant a Bermuda cedar that symbolises your longevity and commitment to nurturing and serving others.”

The tree planted this week was the first of 100 endemics to be planted in celebration of a century of service.
