May is Rotary International’s Youth Activity Month

Ordinarily around this time of year clubs would be interviewing high school students to participate in their district’s Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) conference; but as is now common knowledge, with Covid-19, life has changed. Notwithstanding, Interact and Rotaract clubs around the globe are joining with Rotarians to make the world a better and healthier place.  The Rotary Club of Accra Airport (RCAA), Ghana, along with its chartered Rotaract Club of Central University and two Interact Clubs have undertaken numerous projects and activities that span the six Rotary Avenues of Service. 

Additionally, the club recently marked its 20th anniversary virtually during which its president, Kofi Adu-Mensah, disclosed that RCAA has made a worthwhile contribution of $182, 826 to TRF, stating that “Rotary adds richness to the lives of about 1.2 million members; richness that is not measured in monetary terms, but in the tangible benefit that we deliver to others and the personal joy and fulfillment derived from collaborating with good, honest and successful people for the purpose of serving our fellow man.” 

Food insecurity, worsened by the ravaging effects of Coronavirus, propelled members of the Rotary Club of Erin (Ontario) to donate $10,000 to the East Wellington City Services Food Bank. Increased demand has placed pressure on the food bank and the donation will support the efforts of the Food Bank. Funding for the relief was provided by the Rotary Club of Erin and a matching grant from TRF

“Rotary’s strength lies in the sincerity of purpose of its members.” -- Estes Snedecor, Rotary Club of Portland, Oregon. 1921 Rotary Convention.
