The District Governor’s official visit event was successfully organised in Septemeber 2015. District Governor C R Raju along with district secretary Raghavendra Rao and Assistant Governor Raghunathan made their official visit to our club on the 16th of September 2015. Following the review of club documents, the district team had interaction with all board members. During this interaction, the club directors appraised the district team regarding the on-going projects of the club as well as the projects planned for the rest of the Rotary year. During the interactive session, President Krishnan explored the possibilities of assistance from the district for executing a community service project at Kumizhi. The project envisages refurbishment of existing Primary Health Centre at Kumizhi, which is currently in a dilapidated condition. Governor Raju explained the possibilities of obtaining funds from the Rotary Foundation for executing such projects.

In the regular club meeting that followed, Governor Raju elaborated on the importance of contributing to The Rotary Foundation. He narrated success stories of other clubs, wherein the club’s contributions have been matched up to three times over, thus enabling projects with larger funds outlay to be executed with ease. He exhorted members to donate more to the Foundation.

The meeting was followed by a lively fellowship and dinner session. During the fellowship also, Governor Raju was seen explaining the various possibilities of obtaining substantial grants from The Rotary Foundation. All in all, the evening was informative, fun-filled and most importantly, very relaxing. The club thanks Rtn V C Krishnan for sponsoring the dinner on the evening of District Governor’s visit.
