Rotary KL Diraja 81st Installation

29 06 2008

RACKLians with Rtn Hardeep & Rtn Justin

It’s that time of the year again when our weekend diaries are pencilled full of Rotary and Rotaract Installations. The RACKLians got glammed up in our dinner best and made our way to our parent club’s Installation at Shangri-la Hotel- their 81st! As per tradition, we helped out with the registration counter and tray bearers but all in all, had a great time there – awesome jazzy music, awesome dance floor (where the Rotarians and their spouses certainly showed us young ones a few moves), great company of the jovial rotarians and good food (healthier chinese course dinner this round).
Congratulations to President Francis Chan and his 2008/09 Board!

* Best Community Service Project – Project SMART (joint winners with RAC Gombak)
* RI Presidential Citation
* Commendation for Membership Development
* World Rotaract Week Recognition

Also, congratulations to President Neeraj for being one of the few president’s in the district to receive the President’s Recognition Award (which came with a bottle of wine that we would be celebrating with on his behalf… hehe). 

We couldn’t have done it without the support and hardwork of all the members, alumni, guests and rotarians. So three cheers to all of us!

Rotaract Through 40 Years

19 06 2008

President Neeraj who is currently in Los Angeles attending the International RYLA and RI Convention sent us this amazing news… RACKL got featured in the Rotaract Through 40 Years video that was premiered at the convention.

Keep a hawk eye out for our Project Green Today Greener Tomorrow world debut at 4.54 seconds and 5.24 seconds. And yes, that is our dearest President’s bald spot for the whole world to see… hehe!

Wow, it is amazing at how far Rotaract has come since its debut 40 years ago – just check out how internationally spread we are!

Visit to Rotary KL Diraja Luncheon

18 06 2008

When? 18 June 2008, Where? Shangri-la Hotel, KL, What? Rotary Kuala Lumpur Diraja luncheon meeting.

The Rotaractors (well, 3 of us – Naren, Kavita and David at least) finally managed to coordinate our busy work schedules and make a trip to our parent rotary club’s meeting. Warmly welcomed by President Attan and the Rotarians, we were treated to a scrumptious lunch, got to know them a bit better and not to forget, the chance to personally invite them to attend our 40th installation. Then it was down to business as the topic of the day was a review of RCKLDiraja’s Projects for the term 2007/08.

One of the surprising highlights though was when PE Kavita was “given” the birthday cake being  the only charming lady in the room. Coincidentally, it really was her birthday that day (of course we couldn’t let her conveniently keep it quiet either… grin) and she was feted right up in front with a rousing Happy Birthday rendition by the gentlemen rotarians!
