The Castries lions Club, for the past ten years have been presenting scholarships to students who have succeeded the Common Entrance Examination to a secondary school, but would have difficulty in finding the means to allow their attendance.  In 2006 the Scholarship was renamed the Roger Eudoxie Scholarship fund after the late Lion Roger Eudoxie MJF, Past District Governor.  
This year the club decided to undertake a comprehensive review of the scholarship, but realized that the need for such assistance still existed.  Today four students who had succeeded the examinations to attend four of the Secondary School were invited with their parents/guardians to receive a one-time bursary.  The presentation was made by Esther Eudoxie who encouraged the students to continue to give of their best.

The Lions as is customary shared some encouraging thoughts with the students, reminding them that though this was a one off bursary, the lions were always ready and available to assist in whatever way they needed be it just to share a concern.

Following the presentation the lions of Castries were joined by family and the President of the Gros Islet Lions Club to socialize at Caribbean Cinemas.  The comedy was an action packed one which had lions who usually were asleep at movies ever attentive.  Both before and after the movie the lions took time to socialize in the Gamehouse.

Congratulations to the recipients of the awards. 
Thanks to the Chairperson and members of the Youth Development Committee for the organization and execution of the activity.
The Chairperson of the Social committee for inviting us to socialize at the movies, the President of the Gros Islet Club for your company, and to all the Lions, friends and family who attended to make two activities the success and fun filled events they were.
