1 November 2017 1,111 views No Comment

Dear Fellow Rotarians and Friends,


I am delighted with our club outstanding achievements for the month of October. There is no success without an attitude of sacrifice. The higher the level of leadership we want to reach, the greater the sacrifices we will have to make. To go up, we have to give up. I was exhilarated to see many members ready to step forward and actively participate in the various club activities.

In the month of October, we achieved many significant milestones:

  1. Jointly organized the "Seeing Eye To Eye" International Conference with RC Singapore Heartlands at Singapore National Eye Centre.
  2. Our Club conducted an 8-session YLP (Youth Leadership Program) for ITE College East Rotaractors learning about parliamentary procedures, commonly used rhetorical devices, body language, vocal variety, pitch, tone and pace through practical sessions, and train the youth to be effective communicators and leaders.
  3. Our Charter President helms this community project as the YLP Organizing Chair. This program was delivered by 6 Distinguished Toastmasters (DTMs), who are Rotarians fro RC EClub of 3310 and 3 other Toastmasters.
  4. RC EClub of 3310 mark historic breakthrough organizing 1st World Polio Day 2017 in District 3310 on 24th October 2017 at Kampong Cafe @ BM with RC Singapore Heartlands and RC Tanjong Pagar. The highlight was the invitation of an extraordinary guest speaker, PP John Soe from Jarkata, Indonesia with musical entertainment to bring about a carnival atmosphere. It was a very successful event with more than 200 participants celebrating End Polio Day!!!
  5. RC EClub of 3310 and Operation Rejoice marked a new milestone in Gift of Sight, Nepal 2017. We had collected $100,000 (still short of $20,000) and 6,000 pairs of sunglasses. We presented a cheque of $44,250 to A New Vision to initiate the start of procurement of medical supplies for December medical outreach.
  6. Gift of Sight, Nepal 2017, a medical outreach was featured in the Sin Min Daily - Singapore Edition on 17th October 2017.
  7. RC EClub of 3310 participated together with RC Marina City in Rotary Flag Day 2017 on 28th October 2017 at Vivo City @ Harbourfront MRT station.
  8. Inducted 2 New Rotarians with the newly elected DGND Munisamy Rajamohan, District 3310 Governor 2020-2021 on 12th October.

The month of November will be our final lap to raise our funds and sunglasses, preparation for our December medical outreach to Nepal. We be inducting 4 New Rotarians into our club. We reflect our TEAM spirit and our motto "We Believe, We Act, We Live as TRUE ROTARIANS".

Bring a friend and share with them "Who is Rotary?"… Come and attend our monthly physical meeting on 9th November 2017@ Chinatown Point.
