Message from Gabriel
Bogotá, Mars 23rd, 2021.
Dear Angus, Dear Helen, Dear President, Mr. Rob McLennon, Dear Bruce, and members of the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light:
We send you our greetings and our gratitude because of your biggest effort for helping young men and women of Miramar, Suba, Colombia, to study technical or technological professions for work, during more than eleven years.
Considering the world situation, because of pandemic problem, we were thinking that it could arrive to generate difficulties for you, to continue helping us. Of course, there are other requirements of urgent answer such as health, food, help to people without work in many countries near Australia, also, in your own country.
We understand, your decision to finish your help for this Programme, it was not easy, but at the same time it was good to help your neighbours, countries with a lot of difficulties.
It is important to explain you that hundreds of students benefited of your help, the most part, graduated in different areas and now they work contributing to benefit enterprises, commerce, business- Some of them have finished the University. If this collaboration were not possible, those students, could not study,
We expect that your effort will be especially important for poor people of north and south region, not far from Australia. We are sure you will have an important success through new projects according with the necessities of each region, near you.
Of course, we close a page of the history of our clubs but, our longstanding friendship, we are sure, it will continue for a long time.
To Angus, many thanks for your confidence, solidarity, and orientation: It let us to work in benefit of young boys and girls with an objective: give hands to those who did not have other opportunity to arrive to have a better life through the study and their own effort in benefit of the family, the community, and our Country. Students also, send to all the Members of your Rotary Club of Adelaide Light, their gratitude for ever.
Finally, we expect Angus and other members of our Partner Rotary Club of Adelaide Light, someday can visit us.

The Four Way Test

The Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?

United in the spirit of Service we value truth, fairness and friendship; and we welcome the opportunity that Rotary gives us to contribute our talents and resources in support of others.
