On the 02nd of October Rtr. Amrit Subedi – President-Elect of Rotaract Club of Pokhara (RID 3292) came to Sri Lanka as a part of our first International Service project for this Rotaract year. After having a wonderful day in Galle, he returned to Colombo for a Special General Meeting. Rotaractors from RAC Alumni Mora was ready to welcome our special guest in the evening.
The meeting started at around 6 pm at CoCo Space, Colombo. After the Rotaract formalities, our celebrity for the day Rtr. Amrit was invited to join the head table. President Rtr. Hasitha warmly welcomed him to Sri Lanka. The meeting then commenced with the general procedures of sharing the completed and upcoming projects among the members. The main highlighted project was our international service initiative project Mitrata. Everyone was very excited about this project.
Then it was the most awaited time for everyone. It was the time of gift exchange. The exchange was started with a letterhead exchange between RAC Pokhara and Alumni Mora. This was followed by signing the Twin Club agreement. We were very enthusiastic about this. After signing the agreements Rtr. Hasitha gave some traditional gifts to Rtr. Amrit and followed by the exchange of some gifts from Nepal as well – the traditional Nepalese hat was a very special and added Nepalese vibes to the evening! Rtr. Amrit gave two traditional hats to Rtr. Hasitha and Rtr. Himantha. He also promised to give some more hats when we visit Nepal in the month of November.
Concluding the meeting, we shared cultural food with Rtr. Amrit. He enjoyed tasting Kokis, Kewum and mun kewum. After the meeting even though it was raining, Rotaractors from RAC Alumni Mora did not miss the fellowship dinner at Elite Indian restaurant. After having dinner everyone part ways with the hope of another two amazing days for Rtr. Amrit in Kandy and Nuwara Eliya.
Meeting Rtr. Amrit Subedi and hosting him on his visit to Sri Lanka was an honor. Rotaract Alumni Mora is certainly excited for the second phase of Mitrata; creating new bonds with Rotaractors in Nepal and working together with them.
