For the first time in its history, RC Panchgani, RID 3132, organised a cancer screening camp for the residents of this hill station in Satara district of Maharashtra. Around 500 people benefitted from the camp which was led by the Club President Shahram Javanmardi.
The club partnered with the Apollo Hospital, Mumbai, and the Nargis Dutt Foundation in conducting the medical camp. Addressing the gathering, Priya Dutt, former MP and Foundation Trustee, said that without the support of Rotarians, the medical camp would not have been possible and thanked the Rotary team for the ‘exceptional partnership’.
Seven new Interact clubs
Banking on the popularity of the club’s e-bulletin Silver Oak, which was widely circulated among schools, government offices and prominent people, Javanmardi and his team approached various schools to revive four dormant Interact clubs and chartered seven more Interact clubs. The Interact advisors were appointed by DG Suhas Vaidya. While the club is looking forward to celebrate its diamond jubilee in 2021–22, the big push to its youth power by raising its Interact membership by 350 will “add vigour and enable the club to serve its community better,” said Club Secretary Sunil Kamble.
