The Rotaract Club of Payap University (RCPYU) is in the process of transition from past leadership and members to new ones. However, there are still service opportunities and projects either pending or on the horizon for the club.
BOOKS FOR REFUGEES
For this project, the club gathered English language books to be donated to children living in a local refugee camp. Collection ended November 30th. Distribution is planned for December 18, along with some clothing collected via the Winter Clothing Appeal.
RCPYU extends its thanks to all who donated books and especially a generous donation by Peter and Anne Dawson.
Members of the club gave support to the Rotary Club of Chiang Mai North by participating in their annual Bully Bowl fundraising event. There, the members joined with CMIRC members to bowl for charity.
DISTRICT GOVERNOR’S VISIT
The District Governor for District 3360 made a visit to CMIRC and members of RCPYU were in attendance and participated in the annual dinner and meeting.
NEW ROTARACT POLICIES
The Rotary International Board issued new Rotaract Policies to be effective July 1, 2020, which will change the type of membership of Rotaract Clubs to Rotary Clubs. As such, the new polices will be reviewed and examined by the club management. The club has been informed that its sponsoring Rotary club, CMIRC, has voted to remain its sponsor when the new policies take effect. The club will participate in District discussions on the new policies.
WINTER CLOTHING APPEAL
