  • 1. Trinity World Rotaract Day Joint Bulletin13th March, 2011 Rotaract Clubs of Colombo Millenium City, Kota & Zenith
  • 2. TrinityPRESIDENT’S SPEAKS We the Rotaract Club of Colombo Millennium City started the Rotaract year 2010/11 with the theme ‘Because We Care’. The story behind our theme is keep it simple & have fun - do what your heart tells you to through service to your family, your friends, and your community by touching their hearts. On a joint initiative of twinning with the clubs of Rotaract Kota & Zenith we hope to continue the same on a start to a strong & long lasting Rotaract relationship. The three clubs collectively are now a family and we at RCCMC are proud and honored to be a part of that family.Rtr. Abdul T Z Sanoon We look forward to bringing down our new family to Sri Lanka very soon. Await more information. Yours in Rotaract, Rtr. Abdul T Z Sanoon, President Rotaract Club of Colombo Millenium City sponsored by Rotary Club of Colombo Millenium City Rotary International District 3220 Dear Readers, 2011 has been very eventful since the very first month of January. District Conference “Bani- Thani”, “Rotasia” , PETS -2011-12 etc have kept me on my toes. But that’s exactly what we Rotaractors excel in. Managing everything under the sun. Isn’t it? Whether it is professional life, studies, career, Rotaract or Personal life, we manage everything well. Friends, As you all are already aware that at Rotasia , Goa, we had the tri- Party Twin club Agreement between Rotaract club of Colombo Millennium city , Sri Lanka and Rotaract club Zenith , Chennai. So going forward in the series of steps which we might be taking during rest of year to gain maximum culturally and professionally from each of us ,This E-bulletin shallRtr. Neha Gupta serve as a small token of remembrance of the historic agreement where instead of usual two , three clubs have done their twinning together. I believe that this initiative will help in promoting better goodwill and fellowship among our clubs. This initiative is very unique in the fact that it is binding three very extremely culturally rich RI districts. Joining up of a club of North India, a club of South India and a Club of Sri Lanka is definitely exceptional and amazing. Although we are dispersed in different parts of the globe but this bulletin effectively illustrates our “UNITY IN DIVERSITY” due to similar thoughts, aims and ambitions. I hope there will be a lot of Cultural & Vocational learning as a result of this initiative. I would like to specially thank Rtr Krishan Gopal Malu , Rtr Swathi Sujr , Rtr Abdul T.Z. Sanoon, Rtr Sulari and other Rotaractors in all three clubs for giving their contribution in this bulletin. Last but not the least I m extremely grateful to our Sponsored Rotary Club President Dr. Vikrant Mathur and other Rotarians of the club for their incessant motivation. I wish for effective working of this coalition and achievement of our ambitions and goals. May God Be With Us. Long Live Rotaract Fellowship! Yours Rotaractively Rtr Neha Gupta President Rotaract Club of Kota sponsored by Rotary Club of Kota Rotary International District 305013th March, 2011 Rotaract Clubs of Colombo Millenium City, Kota & Zenith

I think it’s amazing where 3 clubsform a sort of an alliance to work together and make the community a better place.6. Any experiences you would like to share from International Rotaract Events? International RYLA (USA, 2007)and Rotasia (India 2007). Amazing experience where you get to meet a lot of people and learn about culturalbackgrounds and share local experiences with them. It gives a whole new meaning to globalisation of friendship.The best part about such networking is when you visit their country the next time, there is an open invitation tocome and stay with them as they are ever willing to host fellow Rotaractors. That is the true meaning of friendship.7. Do you have any International Project in mind on which we can work together on a bigger level and whichcan help both Sri Lanka and India?

Final message or thought you will like to share with your fellow Rotaractors or Prospective Rotaractors.Rotaract is an amazing movement. When I joined back in 2002, I was a little sceptical as I did not know whatwas going on. However as years went by, I grew closer and in fact fell in love with the movement hence my 8years of a wonderful experience. I would recommend this movement to anyone between 18-30 to join andmake a difference; make a lot of friends, build friendships; they become your second family. I wish Rotaractterm doesn’t haven’t end at age 30, however I must move on and give room for others to grow. This clearlyshows how attached one could get to Rotaract. SO IF YOU ARE NOT YET A ROTARACTOR…. DON’T JUST SITTHERE…. JOIN A CLUB…. Rtr.
