We are in the fourth month of this Rotary year. I have visited 30 clubs to-date.
We have several programs lined up this month:
1. 24th October 2017 is the World Polio Day. Many clubs have taken the initiative to do their own events to commemorate World Polio Day. Rotary Club of Damansara Heights KL, is organising the Annual Oktoberfest with the aim of raising funds and creating awareness of Rotary’s End Polio Now Campaign on 28th October 2017 (Saturday) at 7 pm.
2. The TRF Seminar is on 29th October 2017 (Sunday) at 9.00am to 4.30 p.m. at Auditorium Tan Sri Datuk K.R. Soma, Wisma Tun Sambanthan, WPKL. The cost is RM80 per pax.
3. The District Membership Seminar is at the Lost World Hotel Ballroom in Ipoh on 19th November 2017(Sunday).
Our membership in the District has risen from 1705 on 1st July 2017 to 1756 as at 3rd October 2017. I hope this trend will continue upwards and strengthen clubs in the District.
DISTRICT CONFERENCE 8TH & 9TH DECEMBER 2017.
Our District Conference will be held on 8th & 9th December 2017 (Friday & Saturday) at the Sunway Resort Hotel, Petaling Jaya. The cost is RM450 per pax which is inclusive of Fellowship Dinner on Friday and Banquet Dinner on Saturday.
This conference is organised by the Rotarians for the Rotarians. The purpose of the conference is to provide opportunities for networking, inspirational addresses, and discussions of Rotary-related matters. The conference should also give Rotarians and clubs a vision of Rotary beyond club level and provide a memorable fellowship experience. Many Rotarians have said that they were never truly enthusiastic about Rotary until they saw an inspirational presentation at a district conference.
