Are you interested to volunteer for community projects? Join Rotary Unplugged – online event Thursday 24 June 7 pm
Rotary Club of Thame & District is calling on all community and environment minded people to register in advance to join an online meeting about volunteer opportunities with Rotary on Thursday 24 June 2021 at 7 pm. Anyone who wishes to attend is required to register in advance for this event via this link:
Marius Hopley, the District Governor of Rotary District 1090 in the Thames Valley, will give the talk. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about Rotary, how Rotary members give back to the community, Environment – Rotary’s new area of focus and how to join Rotary. The talk will alternate with breakout 5 minutes session when participants will discuss in groups of 3-4 various community topics suggested by the speaker.
Marius Ciortan, Thame & District Rotary spokesman said: “I would like to encourage all environment and community-oriented people to join our Rotary Unplugged. Our Phoenix Community Club, an offspring of Thame and District Rotary, has already been involved in local environmental projects. We would need more volunteer members to support this new exciting Rotary area of focus.”
Phoenix Community Club has taken on an Environmental project with Thame Wombles and is planning another day with them. They have also arranged a day working on the nature reserve at Cuttlebrook in Thame. Phoenix has also forged links with those involved in Thame Green Living Plan. Additionally, Phoenix has also been in touch with all the local schools sharing the opportunity for them to take part in the Rotary Environmental Poster Competition.
Phoenix members have recently completed the redecoration of the outside play area at the Red Kite Family Centre, local Thame and Chinnor based charity.
During the time of the pandemic, Rotary Club of Thame & District and Phoenix Community Club members have continued supporting the local community, have been meeting safely online and have been welcoming 10 new members since March 2020. The clubs’ doors are largely open to welcome new volunteer members.
