Our News and Stories....
Dear Rotarians and friends of our club,
As you will be aware, the Czech government has declared a state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
"With effect from today, 12th of March 2020 at 14.00, theatre, music, film and other artistic performances, sports, cultural, religious, dance, exhibitions, festivals, pilgrimages, shows, markets, fairs, educational events, both public and private, with a participation of more than 30 people at the same time, are prohibited. This measure does not apply to meetings of constitutional bodies, public authorities, courts and other public or private persons."
In conformity with the state of emergency, the Board of RCPI has taken the decision to suspend our weekly meetings until further notice. In the first phase until April 20th, as the state of emergency will last 30 days.
Thank you for your understanding and I extend my good wishes to your families.
Yours in Rotary,
The SANANIM Gala, organised by our very own Naomi, was a great success and raised substantial funds for the charity who thanked us in a delightful letter:
Our Dearest Naomi & David, all members of RCPI, volunteers, friends,
We sincerely thank you for once again absolutely perfect and heartfelt organization of the best-of-the-year event dedicated to SANANIM !
The 29th SANANIM Anniversary Gala at Zlata Praha was indeed splendid, as always. We can't thank you enough for all your efforts, as we fully realize that the organization is highly demanding.
Thank you for bringing together such an amazing group of people, brave and mature enough to support our non-popular topic. Even after the five years, it is hard for us to believe, that thanks to you, so many people are willing to help our cause. We may repeat ourselves, but it is still very rare. You and your friends are totally unique in your attitude, personal values and generosity. Thank you for bringing these values to the Czech Republic!
Thank you for keeping the Gala night amusing, warm, entertaining and so pleasant for everybody. Your long term support means for all of us in SANANIM more than can be expressed by words. Please, do stay with us, we will do our best to nurture our friendship forever.
Thank you ! We are looking forward to seeing you and your friends soon !
For the first time Rotarians offered a Xmas Curry at the market organised by the Park Lane International school on Valdštejnsnká, thanks to the invitation of Lucie and Ota Hlidek.Three popular curries were prepared by our Rotarian Mamun and they were very well received by visitors to the market. the result was we raised 8,000 Kč for our Indian Schools project. Elsewhere on the market Ota and Lucie were kept busy selling mistletoe for the benefit of Sananim. Another successful fun and fund raising event has been added to the RCPI calendar!"
Rotary's world wide reach and presence is never more apparent than when we greet our exchange students. At a recent club meeting four of the students presented the Rotary flags from their clubs from Brazil, Mexico and Argentina. Welcome to a global family: doing good and having fun.
RCPI was privileged and delighted to host Pavel Fischer as our guest speaker at our recent club meeting.
Pavel is a Czech independent politician, diplomat and senator who graduated from Charles University and also successfully finished Ecole Nationale d'Administration (ENA) in Paris. He served as Head of the Department of Politics in the office of the Czech president Vaclav Havel.
In 2018 he was a candidate in the Czech presidential election and finished in third place. He was subsequently elected to the Czech Senate where he holds the position of the Chair of International Committee.
In his speech to Rotarians and Guests, Pavel talked about Vaclav Havel and politics and linked the past with the present. Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, Pavels speech and thoughts were extremely poignant and thought provoking.
Club President Fernanda and Club Sectretary Helena thanked Pavel for taking the time and for enthralling us with his words.
