August 11, 2023 -The annual Back-to-School Project of the Sint Maarten South Leo Club was a major success. The goal of this initiative, the first of several planned for the community, was to provide students with haircuts and hairstyles.
The “From the Clubhouse to the Community” concept of the Sint Maarten South Leo Club emphasizes the importance of meeting the needs of our community. Creating an opportunity for the students to enter the new school year with renewed confidence and stride brings the Club one step closer to meeting its objectives.
President of the Sint Maarten South Leo Club, Leo Allandale Etienne, expressed that he was “thrilled to see the young people leave with smiles on their cheeks and the self-assurance to face the world”. He continued: “Our Leo members are grateful to have a platform from which they can help youngsters feel joyful and confident as they begin the new school year.”
The overwhelming support the Sint Maarten South Leo Club received from many businesses, organizations, and its parent Club, the Sint Maarten Lions Club, was wonderful to witness. Several donations of breakfast, school supplies, and school bags were obtained.
Leo President Allandale Etienne stated: “We look forward to seeing many more businesses, groups and individuals supporting our initiatives and motivated to lead in service. We can do so much more together as a team.”
He extended special thanks and appreciation to his fellow Leos and the Lion members who showed up to see the Project come to fruition.
Sint Maarten South Leo Club wishes all students, instructors, and parents a productive and awesome school year.
