Dear Rotary Families,

August takes me back to my school days. The rains, lush green surroundings, month long festivities, hot bhutta’s n pakora’s….something very carefree about this month just like school days. I loved all this then and even today!

Talking of festivity, our Senior Citizen Committee & Interactors from our 5 Interact schools put a wonderful Janmashtami Fellowship Program for Senior citizens of Mariam Nagar & Panchavati Vrudhashram. The fellowship committee followed it up with Navroze & Eid celebrations for our members, with a very unusual spread of eatables and games!

Amidst all this festivity & fun our Rotary families continue with their resolve to serve the society. A Deafness Corrective Diagnostic camp was followed with Surgical camp where 25 patients in and around Ramtek town benefited. The Interact, Rotaract and Youth Service committees have picked up their pace to deliver Life Skills & Soft Skills workshops. The Slum upliftment committee & Matching Grants committee are gearing up for something big.

What is heartening to see is the involvement of a whole lot of “recent” Rotarians joining the old war horses, bringing in new ideas & energies to our programs and projects thereby throwing up new leaders for tomorrow, much as our U-19 World Cup wining team has done it! This is a good sign for our Membership Development and Retention program which RI has been emphasizing upon, especially in this Month of Membership Development and Extension.

As we all gear up to welcome “Ganpati Bappa” I feel happy to inform you that the Niramalya Collection Project of our Club, which started some 7 years back as a “project” has now become a “movement” which this year our DG Sanjay is taking it up as a District Project, with all sisters clubs of Nagpur joining hands and NMC, Police department assisting to make this a Mega Rotary Program!

Cheers!

Atul
