Club of Calcutta Renaissance was chartered and recognised by Rotary
International on 22nd February, 2006, one day before the birthday of Rotary
- World Peace and Understanding Day - 23rd February.
The charter members were mostly past Rotaractors, who had to leave the movement as they pass a certain age limit. Thus, even though the club was new, its members had previous knowledge of the Rotary movement and basic club administration know-how. Also it brought together many familiar friends together which enhanced the unity of the club as a whole. So its members are of a slightly young age-group compared to other Rotary Clubs.
The Charter was handed over by the club sponsor, Rotary Club of Calcutta, the oldest running club in the mainland of Asia, to charter President Rtn. Sameer Kothari on 14th April 2006. Its members are ever thankful to Rotary Club of Calcutta, for sponsoring this club in 2005-06.
RCCR adopted an orphanage run by an individual at a village called Paushi, near Contai, East Midnapur in 2006, referred by Rtn. Srijit Maitra, and ever since the club is supporting this orphanage with whatever resources that is being gathered. Long term projects at this orphanage and eventually at Paushi village are on the cards. (See www.rotaryrenaissance.org/paushi for details.)
RCCR is also associated with the organisation of the first job fair in eastern India - J4U, the seventh fair being organised on 12th & 13th January 2008, along with Rotary Club of Calcutta. This job fair provides a common platform for job givers and job seekers under one roof, thus paving the way for effective recruitment. (See www.rotaryrenaissance.org/j4u and www.j4ukolkata.com for details.)
After Rtn. Sameer, the second President of the club was Rtn.
Prakash Nahata, and the third was Rtn. Niharendu Chakravarty. Following them
