The Hallmark Movie Night is a collaborative effort initiated by the International Service Avenue of the Rotaract Club of University of Kelaniya with the Rotaract Clubs of Crescent, Informatics Institute of Technology, Matale, Pune and Uppudi. The event was organized as a festive celebration of Christmas which extended collaboration, cooperation, and entertainment to the Rotarctors and non-Rotaractors alike! The project was initiated on the 17th of December 2022 and the event was held on the 24th of December via Zoom. In other words, the project was initiated successfully within less than two weeks; approximately within 11 days, which is a proud achievement of the Rotaract family.
The project followed several steps and several procedures to bring it to an event of flying success; in flyer designing, content writing, coordination, and technical support, and finally in participation, the Rotaractors devoted themselves to the project. After the project initiation on the 17th of December 2022, the Logo reveal followed on the 18th of December 2022. As well as the revelation of the logo, several informative flyers were shared via WhatsApp to inform the members about the event. On the 22nd of December 2022, a poll was shared to choose the best Hallmark Movie from the votes of the Rotaractors. Then after the democratic process, the movie “Christmas Chronicles” was chosen. The poll followed the Date Reveal on the 23rd of December 2022. Finally, the project was launched on the 24th of December 2022 by the union of the Rotaract Clubs which joined hands together with the International Service Avenue of the Rotaract Club of University of Kelaniya. There were several speeches welcoming and introducing the project by the directors and other official representatives of the respective Rotaract clubs. The Rotaract family enjoyed the movie night with enthusiasm throughout the event and it was a very memorable collaborative event they had hosted, organized, and participated in.
The lavish participation and support of the Rotaractors made it a wonderful Hallmark Movie Night. Even though the movie night was a virtual event held via Zoom, it was a moment of internationalism which brought together the community of Rotaractors! It is indeed added to the list of most memorable souvenirs of the Rotaract family as a golden moment of unity, fellowship, and cooperation!
