Rotary Club News
Dear Rotary friends,
We have turned over to a new month and a new year, 2015, in our calendar, and I wish you and all your nearest and dearest, every good health, lots of energy, mutual understanding, happiness and a great love of life itself and of Rotary.
The month of January in our Rotary calendar is the month of Rotary Awareness. This year we remember the 110th anniversary of our international organisation. Its an opportunity for us to remind ourselves of what being a Rotarian is all about; about how Rotary is reflected in our daily lives, as we respect others, as we act according to ethical principles, and that we think in an international dimension when we help those whom we don't know.
The month of Rotary Awareness is also an opportunity to re-evaluate our club goals, as well as to think about our own engagement in Rotary. In December, clubs held their elections for their new Board for the next Rotary year and I remind you of the date 31.1.2015 by which clubs should inform Rotary International as well as our District Secretary, Oto Kovar. This administrative step, naming your new Club President and Secretary on the Rotary International database, has been actioned by only 13 clubs in the District: Zvolen, Zlín, Valtice-Břeclav, Trenčín, Telč, S.N.Ves, Prostějov, Hluboká, Beroun, Prag Bohemia, Ostrava Int., Levice, Humenné!
We’re starting the second half of our Rotarian Year and we have a number of opportunities for Rotary Awareness, as we consider who to nominate for District Governor for the Rotary year 2017-2018 – the Nomination Committee request is attached. We also have a great opportunity to meet RI President Gary Huang, and that at the President’s Conference in Graz, Austria on 25.4.2015, which is being organised by Districts 1910 and 1920 – come along! The invitation and application is attached.
To strengthen our Rotary resolve, we can contribute by participating in the opera-ballet European premiere of undying love: ‚Petro e Lucia‘ – our strong rejection of war and terrorism. Further information in the attached – no war!
Rotary awards also help in increasing Rotary Awareness – please consider making nominations for awards which will be distributed at the District Conference in Kosice 22- 23.5.2015 (attached)
In conclusion dear Rotary friends, I wish every day this year to be your day of Rotary Awareness.
Real machine guns will not be allowed, however, food and "booze" will be available in copious amounts. The venue is the appropriately named "Trick Bar" at Malostranska Beseda, which has a capacity of about 100. The Trick Bar is comprised of 4 rooms: a sit-down bar, a dance floor with stage, and two lounges/saloons. The place looks like a "speak easy," that used to be very popular during the 1920s in the US.
The evening will include cold/hot buffet, unlimited beer/wine/non-alcoholic drinks, an cash bar serving spirits. Entertainment will be provided by the 11-member Miloslav Novotny Jazz Swing Orchestra. There will be a couple of surprises awaiting you.
