Members of the Kiwanis Club of Grand Cayman installed their new board and officers for the 2019-2020 year on Sunday 6 October at their annual installation dinner.
Duane Turner was elected as the club’s new president, taking over from Nicola Murray.
Other officers elected were: president-elect Winsome Radcliffe, vice president Jessica Kozaily, secretary Linda Chapman-Key, assistant secretary Martin Couch, treasurer Cavell Goulbourne, assistant treasurer Annabelle Dela Cruz-Ting and directors Ruud van der Pluijm, Daniella McGowan, Kadi Pentney and Emily-Rose Cross.
“It’s truly my honor to serve this year as club president” said Mr. Turner in a press release. We’re a club that has been actively serving the community, especially where school children are concerned, since 1975. Yet, we feel like a best kept secret. I think the time has come for that secret to be leaked. One of my goals this year is to push for us to get more recognition and exposure island-wide.”
Outgoing president Ms. Murray was awarded the title “Distinguished President” for her leadership and dedication during her presidency.
Roger Bodden, a distinguished past president and current Chair for Sponsored Youth, was awarded "Kiwanian of the Year" for his dedication, passion, and promotional work of our high school Key Clubs.
Officers, Ruud van der Plujm (Director), Linda Chapman-Key (Secretary) and Cavell Goulbourne (Treasurer) were all presented with a "Presidents Award" for their outstanding dedication and service to the club.
