On the 23rd of October 2020, the Monthly General Meeting of the Rotaract Club of University of Kelaniya was held virtually. We were so glad to see the attendance of 100+ members for the meeting.
It started around 7.15 P.M with the Sargent-at-arms calling the house to order. Then the Secretary Rtr.Sahan Silva read the minutes of the previous meeting.
Afterwards, President Rtr. Nipuna Rambukkanage addressed the gathering. He appreciated the enthusiasm of all the members and encouraged them to keep up the good work. He also appreciated everyone who took part in “Snehadana”. ( If you are yet to check out what Snehadana is, just click https://blog.racuok.lk/?p=4746)
Rtr.Nipuna also thanked everyone who contributed to “Down the Wicket – 2020” to make it an immense success. ( Down the wicket? Don’t know what it is? Just go to https://blog.racuok.lk/?p=4714) .
Then, Vice President Rtr. Kisal Ekanayake addressed the attendees regarding the current situation due to the pandemic. He kindly announced that anyone with financial or other needs can inform the executive committee so that the Rotaract community can take necessary action to help the ones in need as soon as possible.
Then, it was time for the director announcements. All the avenue directors updated the members about the recent projects that were organised and the upcoming projects.
