A trip down memory lane

It was a trip down memory lane for Rotarians and their family members who had gathered to celebrate the golden jubilee of Rotary Club of Madras South (RCMS) here on Saturday. On the occasion, the contributions of various Rotarians who helped the Club were recalled.

Chief guest and Rotary International president Nominee for 2011-12 Kalyan Banerjee lauded the contributions of the Club, especially its focus on vocational education. He asked the Club to set new targets in its jubilee year for the Rotary Foundation.

“Take up issues that make a difference. Let us rediscover and reinvent ourselves to serve the people,” Mr. Banerjee said. Rotarian past district governor Ramakrishna Raja said it is “fellowship” for which RCMS would always be known the most. W. Anand, district governor, Rotary District 3230 said eradication of polio has been one of the important initiatives of the Club.

O.P. Vaish, former Rotary International director, said “you have to live my age to enjoy and feel how emotionally touching 50 years of a club can be.”

The RCMS plans to adopt a local school in Mylapore. P. Bowmick, president RCMS, R.V. Rajan, chairman of the golden jubilee committee and George Cherian, president, Rotary Club of Madras spoke.
