ROTARY INSTITUTE CONVENER MESSAGE CARPATHIA                                                                Cluj-Napoca

"For the first time in the history of Rotary International, Eastern Europe – this reborn part of the Rotarian world which has been long time without rights of communication and association, received the honor of organizing a major event, an International Institute, a voice of friendship and pride of the Service above self. Perhaps this is due to the fact that after 78 years Romania has again a Rotarian in the Board of Directors, but certainly this honor is addressed primarily to the country and its Rotary clubs who turned Romania into a champion of the Rotarian regional development, based on a recognized community involvement, particularly social. The President of Rotary International, Mr. Ian RISELEY and Rotarians from Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Macedonia, Croatia, Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, Kosovo, Cyprus, Egypt, Bahrain, UAE, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, Ukraine, Belarus and of course from our district will give in Cluj, in 2017, a sign of peace and Rotarian understanding. They will talk about their past and future projects, will reveal their emotional experiences which keep us proud of the joy of those sustained by us through our actions. Let’s show what we can offer to the peace and to the world understanding by our Institute motto: Our Rotary Vision is Action!
