New Rotaract Club formed in Guwahati

Filling the void of almost a decade, the Inaugural Ceremony of Rotaract Club of Guwahati West was organised at Hotel Blue Moon on February 12, 2009. Sponsored by Rotary of Guwahati West, membership was granted to thirty rotaracts. This ceremony, however, was a result of a long process undertaken by its member way back from September 5, 2008.

The ceremony was started with Deb Kumar Mishra, President and Tridib Nath, Secretary, Rotary Club of Guwahati West taking their chair. The proceeding started with a discussion about the annual District Assembly of Rotary Club of Guwahati West to be held at April 26, 2009. Issues regarding fund and proposed sovenier were also discussed. Some promotional aspects were also discussed.

Then the charter was handed over to Dr. Samarjit Saikia, President and Kuldeep Baishya, Secretary, Rotaract Club of Guwahati West. Badges and Identity Cards were also given to its directors and other rotaracts. Then the Secretary presented his secretarial report.

It is to be stated that Rotaract is a daughter organization of Rotary Club, the eligible age for the membership of which is between 18 to 30 years. Rotary has a long history of social service of more than 100 years, from 1905 to be precise. Rotaract's history is relatively short, which first began in 1968 but significantly spread out across 163 countries. Significantly, ten years before there used to be four Rotaract Club in Guwahati, which closed down later due to some unknown reasons.

Five members including the President of Rotaract Club of Behala were also present there. They expressed their heartily wishes to the newly formed club and expressed their desire to form a twin club being the two adjacent districts. They also presented gifts to the President and Secretary as well as all the rotaracts. In turn, the president of Rotaract Club of Behala was felicitated with a fulam gamocha.

Later blood donation certificate was distributed to 18 members. Moreover, decision was also taken to organize the monthly assembly at Sisu Sadan from next occasions onward.
