Rotary International

Nestled on a fjord-like bay along Montenegro's Adriatic coast, the town of Kotor is a time capsule. With its medieval Old Town area, overlooked by a hilltop castle fortress, the city accounts for a significant percentage of Montenegro's cultural heritage sites. The Rotary Club of Kotor celebrates this history and cultural heritage through its fundraisers and projects, which have supported everything from the town's orchestra to a traditional maritime organization.

Rotaract Club of South Barbados 
Congratulations are extended to the Rotaract Club of South Barbados Board of 2021/21 on receiving the Platinum Award in the 2021/22 Zone 34 Rotaract Awards. The Club had some impressive accomplishments in the 2021/22 Rotary Year, so it's only fitting that their actions were recognized through the Zone 34 Rotaract Award. 
The Board received the award certificate from Rotary Coordinator Mike Darragh and AG Giselle Holder congratulating them on the award last week.
The Rotaract Club of South Barbados will be celebrating its 12th charter anniversary on January 13th, 2023. To honour this milestone, a fellowship meeting will be hosted on January 14th to celebrate and reflect on the growth of the club.
