General manager of the Shipping Association of Jamaica (SAJ), Trevor Riley, has pledged to make health care and education the focus of his tenure as president of the Rotary Club of Liguanea Plains (RCLP).

Riley was installed as president of RCLP last Thursday at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel in St Andrew.

In his first speech in his new post, Riley vowed to embrace the call of president of Rotary International, Ray Klinginsmith, to "think big, seek best practices and lead boldly".

In leading the new administration, Riley said RCLP would continue its quest to provide health care to communities islandwide with its wellness tour. The plan, he said, is to expand the tour in the year 2010-2011.

"We plan to take the Mobile Wellness Tour to at least five new communities this year," he said.

Additionally, he stated that RCLP would continue its work at the New Providence Primary School to touch more lives through the club's outreach programmes.

Riley thanked those who have supported RCLP and Rotary on a whole and encouraged them to continue to support Rotary as it aims to build better communities.

He also extended his gratitude to the directors and officers of the club for their support.

Riley added that included in the club's activities for the year ahead is RCLP's annual walkathon, scheduled for January 2011, as well as its annual golf tournament to be held on March 19, 2011 at the Caymanas Golf and Country Club.
