In The Limelight- 1st Quarter Roundup

Evidently the year 2017/18 became one of the most memorable years in our Club’s history, with greatly considerable amount of awards and highly award-able projects concluded.

With everlasting hopes for keeping up the momentum, further more to bring about a better momentum, the Rotaract Year 2108/19 was commenced

by our Club under the President Rtr. Limashi Kosgodage and Secretary Rtr. Amandi Umagiliya in a high note with the project Arambayak.

Our IPP Rtr. Akhila Adeeshwara expressing his ideas. “It’s been nearly 4 years since I joined Rotaract. FMF was the first club I joined and still a part of it. I was fortunate enough to be the President of this amazing club which was brought up to an extremely high standard by the past Presidents which set really high bars for me. But thanks to my super team of directors and members, last year was the best year for me in Rotaract. Holding the position of Presidency was not an easy task at all, but definitely did not get fee up either. We were able to achieve so much together as a team and that’s a huge deal. All I have to say to the current President, her board is that, be a genuine friend of every member. Care for them as if you’d care for your own brother or sister. No one works for money and no one is bound to work. Having a mutual relationship will take you to your end goal and do wonders. It’s all about the trust and empathy you build. It’s all about being there for one another. All the best.”
