Welcome to Zonal Meet #2 of Zone 21 !


Dear readers,

More than two months of exciting Rotary activity has passed as we Rotarians strive to fulfill the goals of our wonderful Rotary International President Rtn. Dong-Kurn Lee and our very own District Governor Rtn. Nayantara Palchoudhuri.

Rotary Club of Calcutta Renaissance has also walked along these months on the path to service and fellowship amongst members and peers. At the recently held Eye Camp at Paushi, Midnapore, we have learnt how to enjoy Rotary, and allow others in service to savor the camaraderie and company of our members. This bulletin has been covering our activities – big or small – every week for the benefit of club members and others outside our club.

This Zonal Meet is another occasion where we come together to know each other better, enjoy fellowship, and discuss how to contribute better to the Rotary movement.

This issue of CLARION covers a brief introduction of Zone 21 and its constituent Rotary Clubs. A small profile of our club members is also published.

Happy reading!
