Rotaractors from the whole island including Rotarians such as Jean Claude Tour, Past President of the Rotary of Curepipe, Jeevesh Augnoo, President of the Rotary Club of Mahebourg and the DRR Gael H. Bolli gathered around for a lively and jovial dinner. 2016/2017 witnessed the blooming of the club alongside of the flourished friendship of the members and guests.
Bandish Augnoo, the President for the year 2016/2017 made an overview of the projects and achievements accomplished by the club through hard work and dedication, before handing over the reins to Chetan Gukhool for the year 2017/2018.
The new President anounced the projects for the upcoming year, highlighting the continuation of the Learning Zone project at Le Bouchon with more innovation and a sterilisation campaign for animals.
Chetan introduced his board members(which consists of IPP Bandish as Sergeant At Arms, Rotaractor Mevin as the secretary, Rotaractor Vashil as the director of community projects, Rotaractor Avinash as the director of professional development, Rotaractor Simi as the director of Membership, Rotaractor Rishikesh as the director of Public Relations and Image) to the guests. The evening was followed with the induction of three new members who, previously, deeply invested their time and efforts in the activities of the club: rotaractor Pooja Raghoo, Melvyn Dhurmea and Oorvashi Beeharry. All three new members were pinned by the DRR Gael H. Bolli.
The night was under the spell of four young and weirdly charming personae: Tivites (a.k.a Rotaractor Vashil), Mazor (a.k.a Rotaractor Avinash), Vivi of Monaco(a.k.a Secretary Mevin) and Nancy from Quatre Coco (a.k.a Rotaractor Simi). Laughter and joy spread across the hall and more evidently, it appears that Vivi of Monaco won the hearts of many.
We can only hope that the collaboration between the different clubs will be as strong as it was the previous years and wish a fruitful year for all clubs. Service above self is the value of the rotaractors and beyond lies friendship and the commitment of giving what we have to those who need it most.
