The Rotary Club of Pattaya, the oldest club in Pattaya founded in 1972, held its bi-weekly meeting at the Royal Cliff Hotel in Pattaya earlier this week and covered several important matters to both the club and for the local community.
The meeting took place on Monday, June 28, 2021, at their regular location at the Royal Cliff Hotel conference room. Strict Covid-19 prevention measures including temperature checks, usage of hand sanitizer, sign-in procedures, and other rules were provided. The meeting saw several guests as well as guest speakers and even visiting Rotarians from other countries which have been rare recently in Thailand due to the border restrictions in place due to Covid-19.
Alexandra Augustijn was the main guest speaker and was also inducted into the club as a brand new member along with one other new member, Sarah Jayne. Congratulations to Rotarian Saray Jayne Edwards and Rotarian Alexandra Agustijn.
Alexandra spoke about the Rotary Club of Pattaya’s peace art initiative, in which you can buy art reproductions locally and the money goes entirely to charity. The art was designed by 87 local children from schools in our area and is designed to promote peace and encourage the overall concept of peace. Alexandra also spoke about her efforts to promote the positive, healthy, inspiring side of Pattaya and wellness which you can also read about by clicking on the art link below.
The Rotary Club of Pattaya has a currently postponed charity concert, the Peace Dinner Concert which will take place when Covid-19 restrictions ease in Chonburi and Thailand.
The club will, however, be proceeding forward with the induction ceremony of a new president and board of directors later this month which will be held with Covid-19 prevention measures in effect. Outgoing Club President Boonseub was thanked by all members for his contributions to the club.
As for the concert and peace dinner, this date will be announced to the public in the near future as it is hopeful restrictions and measures prohibiting concerts will be lifted sometime in the future. At this time due to ongoing Covid-19 measures a new date has not yet been chosen.
