Sept. 12, 2001 – Sixteen years of a rich Rotary history will be the topic of an address by Richard Grant, Rotary International district governor for 2001-2002, at the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of St. Thomas at noon Thursday at Marriott's Frenchman's Reef Beach Resort.
The event will be a get-together for all the Rotary Clubs of St. Thomas and St. John – Rotary II, Rotary Charlotte Amalie, Rotary Club East and Rotary Club of St. John.
Grant, a St. Croix resident, became a Rotarian in 1985 and became treasurer of Rotary II on St. Thomas two years later. After moving to St. Croix, he became treasurer of the Rotary Club of St. Croix Mid-Isle in 1989. Most recently, he served as assistant district governor from 1997 to 2000.
An active community leader, Grant was named "Motivator of the Year" in 1991 by the V.I. Business Journal. Honored by Rotary three times as a Paul Harris Fellow, he is married to Dr. Rita Dudley Grant, psychologist and former Health Department assistant commissioner, who is also a Paul Harris fellow, and a member of Rotary's Bequest Society.
Grant's jurisdiction as district governor includes Rotary Clubs, in addition to those in the territory, in Anguilla, the Bahamas except for Grand Bahama, the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, St. Barth's, St. Martin, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
