Your opportunity to be involved!
 
Between November 16-19 we have a delegation of 120 Rotarians and their partners from District 3232 from Chennai India here in District 9685.  The delegation will visit our district for a Friendship Exchange having completed the first half of their visit in Victoria..  I would like to invite all clubs to participate in this historic exchange at events hosted at various zones in our district.  District 3232 is very keen to establish Sister club relationships. This supports part of the Rotary objective to build international understanding and goodwill. Sister clubs share club information, projects and activities.

A number of the Indian clubs are interested in sister club arrangements. A sister club is one that has a sharing relationship with another club, preferably an international club. This supports part of the Rotary objective to build international understanding and goodwill. Sister clubs share club information, projects and activities.
Ideally, such clubs should have some club members visit each other periodically. On such visits, visiting Rotarians can be home hosted, experience something of the club, district, culture and the country. Visiting Rotarians can visit local club projects, club meetings and district activities. Visiting Rotarians can also be encouraged to support proposed local and international projects.
It is possible for sister clubs to participate in important club meetings via internet video connections. Club bulletins should be exchanged on a regular basis and project reports.  It is important to maintain regular contact with sister clubs to build a strong relationship and knowledge of each other and each other’s country.
