District Governor Helen made a ‘Virtual Visit’ to the Rotary Club of London Centenary, the Rotary e-Club that is based in our District. With a little help from a laptop computer, Helen was able to meet and discuss Rotary with members in England, and in alphabetical order Cyprus, France, Germany, Holland, India and Zimbabwe!
After giving her inspiring address to the Club, there were questions on a Youth Programme for youngsters in Uttar Pradesh to work jointly with Rotarians in London, the availability of District Assembly training sessions to e-Club Rotarians, developing the use of Rotary Ideas with a PayPal Account, and developing the Communications network within the District.
With the Rotarians in central London shown above was the Rotary Global Scholar, Jeremy, who is being hosted in London by the e-Club.
The meeting lasted just one hour, but a lot of Rotary was done, and new friendships were forged. With just one meeting shared by Rotarians in seven countries, e-Clubs may have a key role to fulfil in the future of Rotary. What better example can there be of “Rotary Serving Humanity”?
