67 Minutes for Mandela Day

Thanks to a generous donation of 1000 food parcels donated to George Rotary Club, George Rotarians took the opportunity to do their 67 minutes for Mandela day by donating them in turn to those less fortunate in the local community, and reaching out to clinics and crèche’s in the local communities in the George municipality, (Blanco, Thembalethu, and Sedgefield.)
 
A District Diversity Committee was launched at District Conference in 2018 and since then, members of the committee have been hard at work organising and facilitating conversations around the topic of diversity in Rotary. When we talk about diversity, we mean diversity of vocation, skills, gender, interest, ethnicity, religion and much, much more. Our guiding question is "How can we make sure that, whatever your background and context, you feel like there is a place in Rotary for you?"
 
It has become common practice for Rotary clubs around the world to Recognise VOCATIONAL EXCELLENCE of the highest order (especially in January which in Rotary's Vocational Service Month), and to honour outstanding contributions by individuals or teams of individuals for significant advancement in their vocational fields and service to their communities, In doing so they exemplify the Rotary model of “Service above Self.”  This is then recognised by Rotary’s Vocational Service Awards. These outstanding contributions also set an example to others, particularly the youth to strive for Vocational Excellence.
