Bronze - Out In Fri's (Rotaract Club of University Alumni)
Out in Fri’s is an event of refreshment for every working head from their hectic working lives. On a Friday evening, club members go somewhere for dinner and get themselves relaxed. The main objective of this initiative is to meet club members at least once a month to familiarize each other and discuss future projects. While having chit-chats the members do not miss the chance to savour delectable dishes from a variety of cafés.
Thanks to the night out, cuisine, cozy surroundings, and the participation of enthusiastic members, the event was a success in July, August, and September.
Owing to the universal pandemic Covid-19, the club, unfortunately had no room for physical meetups. They had to change their setup and after September 2020, they devised a new plan to hold their monthly get together virtually via Google Meets. They also invited fellow Rotaractors from other clubs to grace the evening.
The main goal of the revamped setup was to interact and collaborate with other university clubs. The evening was packed with excitement thanks to ample fun and intriguing activities, as well as lovely singing performances and gigs by members of various other clubs. Despite the fact that it was not physical, this set-up too met the objectives of the project.
