July 11, 2014 divider image

ACTIVITY: DISTRIBUTION OF NEEM AND FRUIT BEARING TREE SEEDS TO TWINKLE CLUB MEMBERS.

The very first project of the newly installed team at the Rotary Club of Nagpur was a runaway success from the word go. Monal Malji and his Green City team , comprising of Neeta Gupta, Nisreen Maimoon, Anjuli Minocha, Deepesh Ajmera,Dr Inderjeet Mulik, Mohammed Master,Vishal Agrawal, Dr Deepa Jamwal and Vinita Bahri, started the day at the crack of dawn. Amazing support came from all quarters of the Club. Many members & their spouses pitched in their bit in true Rotary spirit.

The enthusiastic kids and their parents happily collected the Neem seeds & Save water stickers from the Rotary stall and enquired about the competition that has been organized by the club at Hislop college on the 14th September, whereby, the children who grow the best Neem saplings shall be given prizes and recognition and coupons.An Essay contest on Neem is also there for the children.
Some prominent personalities like our DG Dattatraya Deshmukh , Mayor Anil Sole, Mr. Banwarilal Purohit ( Ex MP) ,Mr. Rajendra Purohit ( MD,Hitavada),Mr. Shyam Wardhane ( Municipal Commisioner ) & Commissioner of Police Mr. Pathak etc. also visited our stall.

By 1:30 pm all the 10,000 seeds had been distributed and the activity was over by 2:00 pm. This year the Hitavada Twinkle club membership drive drew an unprecedented 30,000 children !!

The success of the seed distribution drive shall also be gauged by how many seeds are actually converted into saplings, apart from the distribution. The project was successfully able to garner high visibility and generate interest in the Twinkle club members and their parents,thereby spreading awareness and importance of Trees and keeping the city green! Special thanks to all the Past Presidents,Members & their spouses for their support & encouragement .
We also thank Neem Foundation for their unconditional support.
