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 !

“Peace Through Service”
On Thursday 12th January 2012 our Rotaractors and friends got together at Fratelli Bar & Restaurant to celebrate the New Year.
This celebration was held with the traditional cutting of a Vasilopita. A tradition associated with the blessing of the house (or in our case RAC Nicosia) and the blessing of good luck for the new year to a lucky person, in whose piece, the hidden coin is found.
Members and friends alike, each enjoyed a piece of the delicious Vasilopita cake. As fate would have it the hidden coin was found in the piece cut for our Club leaving us with the hope that our endeavours as a Club this year would also be accompanied with luck !
Our partying at Fratelli continued…and the general merriment was not only attributed to the excellent wine served by Fratelli’s staff but also to the rewarding feeling of pride for the work done in 2011 and our enthusiasm for things to come in 2012.
This joyous occasion, in the presence of our Club’s members and friends, was the perfect opportunity to welcome our Club’s first new member for 2012.
In the pinning ceremony held, Anna Maria Leotsakou was made the Club’s newest member as a reward for her enthusiasm and contributions to our Club.
We warmheartedly welcome Anna Maria to the Club and the Rotary family !!
