On 13 June, the Rotaract Club Nicosia held its handover ceremony, in the yard of Octana, in the old town of Nicosia. Under a starry sky, the presence of members and friends of the Club and Rotaratians helped to create a beautiful and festive atmosphere.

Glafkos gave a brief review of the year and gave the floor to Rotary President, Anthony Ashiotis and to Rotary – Rotaract liaison officer, Louis Thoma, who in their turn thanked Glafkos for all the excellent work during the past few years and wished for a good cooperation for the new year. The new President presented the new board and committee officers (Past President: Glafkos Mitsidis, Vice President: Antonia Hadjicosta, Secretary & International Projects Officer: Evie Christodoulou, Professional Development Officer: Anna Maria Leotsakou, Club Service officer: Charalambos Koutrouzas, Community Service Officer: Antonis Savva and PR and Social Media Officer: Mae Mavroudis) and announced the pinning of two new members of the club, Agis Eliades and Maria Ioannidou.

Film Synopsis:   Six young Cypriots who have never met each other before, three Greek Cypriots and three Turkish Cypriots, are invited to share a house for five days. Together they will travel across divided Cyprus in an attempt to explore their identities as Cypriots. They will argue from different perspectives of history, they will share stories of the past and together they will envision the future. Will they succeed in breaking down prejudices? Will they be liberated from the traumas of the past that have been passed on to them? Will they discover truths they had never before encountered? Is peace a long way ahead?

Rotaract Fellowship Weekend in Agros (12 -13 January 2013)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Rotaractors gathered from Clubs all over Cyprus to share a beautiful experience during the Fellowship Weekend that took place at Agros on the second weekend of January. Of course Rotaract Club of Nicosia members made a strong presence, as they were catalytic in the organization of this event and were assisted by the generosity of our sponsoring Rotary Club of Nicosia.

On the 12th of January a group of 30 Rotaractors met at Rodon Hotel in Agros to spend the weekend together, get to know each other better and create bonds between our Rotaract Clubs.

On this ice-cold day the programme started with a rich lunch and some village wine at Kyriacos Tavern to warm us up and break the ice between those of us who had not met before. With the ice broken we then went back to the hotel, where Mr. Peter Harsh made an interesting presentation about Rotaract, the roles of the Board members and gave some answers to the participant’s questions. The day finished with dinner at the hotel and some fun games enjoyed by all the attendees.

Following Sunday morning breakfast, the group visited the Tsolakis House of Roses, where we found out the production procedure of rosewater and other relevant products, such as soaps, liqueurs and candles. The Agros fellowship completed with a last stop at Niki’s sweets, just to sweeten our Sunday melancholic afternoon and the sad end to what was described by all as a successful Fellowship Weekend.

Rotaract Club Nicosia held  their first club meeting on 15 January 2013 at Seven Lounge bar and had the opportunity to celebrate the coming of 2013 with the Club’s traditional cutting of the Vassilopita along with our honoured guests Mrs Maria Christopoulou (Chairperson of District RYLA 2013) Mr Louis Thoma (our Rotary Liaison) and Mr Anthony Ashiotis (Incoming President of Rotary Nicosia).

During our meeting and amongst other things on the agenda Niovi Georgiade our Club Secretary made a short presentation about the activities and presentation our Rotaractors attended during the Agros Fellowship.  With three new prospective members around we had the opportunity to inform them about Rotaract and give them an insight into who we are and what we do but also get to know them better.

The cutting of the traditional Vassilopita  found our Rotary Liaison Mr Louis Thoma as the lucky person to find the flouri (a small medallion of luck for the year) with other members of our Club as well as a few prospective members  winning  bottles of red wine as presents.

Overall our Club Members and Guests welcomed the new year with joy and spirit(s) .

On behalf of Rotaract Club of Nicosia we hope that you all have a great year with many rewards !

RAC Nicosia Christmas Bazaar Results !!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Dear Rotaractors, Friends and Visitors

As you are aware our Club had set the goals of raising funds and awareness in support of  ‘Aggalia Elpidas Non Profit Organisation through our traditional Christmas Bazaar (held always on the first Saturday of December).

Our Club’s Rotaractors once again displayed their hidden artistic and culinary talents in preparation for our Bazaars, producing an envious selection (and amount) of cakes, cookies, brownies and muffins but also handcrafted jewelry and Christmas ornaments.

Once more Rotaractors used all their festive spirit, positive energy and of course excellent salesmanship on the day and managed to produce a sell out in the by sun set !!!.

This could not but be reflected in the outcome of our efforts. Our Club’s Rotaractors managed to raise over 1400 Euros as net proceeds but more signmificantly awareness for our cause of creating in cooperation with Aggalia Elpidas a childrens playground in Spyros Kyprianou Park in Agglantzia for children with disabilities.

In this accomplishment a big Rotaract THANK YOU goes out to our amazing team of Rotaractors but also our family and friends for all their support.

Rotaract Club of Nicosia – Team Building Weekend @ Cavo Maris Beach Hotel (12 & 13.10.2012)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Rotartact Club of Nicosia organized a team building weekend in Cavo Maris Beach Hotel in Protaras on 12 &13 of October 2012.

The aim of this event was to improve communication between the members and learn about one’s strengths and weaknesses through various activities and ice breakers.

At the first day we did some exercises consisting of a variety of tasks designed to develop group members and their ability to work together effectively. Some of the activities were the blind folding and the Guess who Game.

Most of the games helped us see how other members see us, how the team works together and discover better methods of communication.

On Saturday night we all went out to Spartiatis Taverna to enjoy the fish mezedes and good wine. Taking the opportunity of this fellowship weekend we also celebrated the addition of one more Rotaract member to our Club. At the end of our dinner we all raised our glasses to welcome Mae Mavroudi as the newest member of our Club as a reward for her dedication and efforts throughout the previous months .

Welcome to our Club and the Rotaract family Mae !!

We ended up spending the second day (Sunday) with social activities that encouraged members to spend time together and get to know each other better.

Overall it was a relaxing and the same time learning experience for all of us!
