Kick-Off Meeting for the Club Year 2018/19

Why did you come to Rotaract? And what should our club life look and feel like when we look back in a year? These questions guided us in the official Kick-Off-Meeting of this Rotarian year 2018/19.

We took a look back at the foundations and the spirit of Rotaract and the Rotarian family and reflected how our club has filled the three pillars – Learn – Help – Celebrate – with life in the previous year. Looking ahead, we brainstormed our visions for the club and got inspired by the many ideas that our members and guests shared.

Ranging from supporting the local food bank (Tafel) with a Buy-One-More activity, or learning about bee-keeping as part of Rotaract Germany’s BeeAlive project, to raising funds along with our Rotarian partners club through e.g. the Adventskalender sale or the Hanau-24h-Run, we are already looking forward to a busy year – and there is more to come:

A recent presentation at Rotary Club Eschborn on CPR inspired us to start developing a Saving Lives social service project to teach people how to act in a medical emergency. Creative Time with Children in need sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon, doesn’t it? First contacts with local partners have already been established. Providing refugees a platform to share their stories and to further mutual understanding is the idea behind Untold Stories, a concept pitched by our guest Sonan. And, of course, a Rotaract Frankfurt/Main-International original concept, ROTARart CulturACT, the charity concert with performances by Rotaract members and friends first started in November 2017, may be back by popular demand. Stay tuned!
