Hello, my dear fellow Rotarians. We have three months left on current TRF programs and then the new Rotary Year begins with recently announced changes in several items from The Rotary Foundation.

At the moment everyone and everything in the city is focused on the vaccine and offering continuously all kinds of helping hands to our communities. Hopefully vaccination will begin in the month of March. In the meantime, it is difficult to get anyone‘s attention on any other matter. For different reasons, many club projects have to be postponed or to be cancelled due to unexpected prolongation of this worldwide deadly disease. In order to open opportunities to help people, the District Grant subcommittee will accept the changes of project subject of District Grant applied and we also will accept delay of project reports until late May of this year.
