RCPI News and Stories
Project Rozhled helps young adults from children´s homes and foster care with their future development. They help with choosing appropriate future careers, preparation for important factors which will inevitably change in their personal lives, and to utilize their skills in the labor market. Their goal is to help those young people to find their place in the world once they leave a children´s home.
Linda Hurdová and Jan Hergeth presented the project to RCPI members at one of our meetings.
"We were honored Monday evening to present our work before members of the Rotary Club Prague International at Barcelo Old Town" said Linda, "Thank you for a very enjoyable evening."
Sanan, the RCPI president, thanked Linda and Jan for the very interesting presentation.
 
 
At a meeting of our club, RCPI presented a cheque for CZK 40,000 to the Czech Charity ICTUS.
The charity helps individuals who have suffered strokes.
 
 
As part of a busy schedule in the Czech Republic, students and staff from the Butler University, Indianapolis US, visited our club. Marietta Stalcup and Heidi Thompson explained the construct and background to the MBA programme which is recognised as one of the most innovative in the US. Students take part in trips to Europe where they are exposed to business and cultural experiences which broaden their perspectives. The students introduced themselves and both Members and students enjoyed lively discussions over dinner at the Malostranská beseda where the club met in the historic lesser town of Prague.
 
 
The alarm clock sounds at 3am. Get Up! - it is time to join the members of RCPI for a dawn ride through Prague on what is (almost) the longest day of the year. By 4am we set of - and by 4:30 the sun rose over the horizon basking us in its golden rays. The weather was the best in the 5 year history of the "Dawn Ride" and spirits were high as we criss crossed Prague on our bicycles. In the Old Town the revelers from the night before were still active. "Hey mate, can you tell me the way to the nearest kebap shop" came the request from someone who had obviously had a great night out with his friends. "200 meters on the right" - Rotarians are always helpful and obliging.
Technical issues are also no problem for a motivated team of Rotarians - two inner tube  changes and a number of other technical challenges were soon resolved and the team continued on its way.
The ride ended at Cafe Limonade who kindly opened early for us. Nothing like eggs and bacon and a big cup of steaming coffee to revive after such an early start.
4am on Charles Bridge
 
 
 
 
 
 
A welcome from RCPI President Sanan Phutrakul
Dear Members, Friends and prospective Members,,
 
I would like to welcome you to the Rotary Club of Prague International (RCPI), based in one of the most beautiful cities in Central Europe. Founded in 1998, RCPI is the largest and only English-speaking Rotary club in District 2240, with a professionally and culturally diverse membership. Our club prides itself on the service projects we carry out year-to-year, as well as a breadth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm our club members bring with them.
 
This year’s theme is “Rotary Serving Humanity”, and as you can see on the following pages, that is exactly what our club does… serve people who are in need. Whether it is supporting local charities like Modrý Klíč or supplying clean water to communities in India, RCPI members are committed to service above self through a robust and entertaining schedule of activities and events that we schedule throughout the year.
 
My goals for the year are focused on New Generations Service with an emphasis on Rotaract and Interact club support; supporting our growing membership in both acquisition and retention; support for the Rotary Foundation centennial anniversary; and strengthening community outreach with local businesses and organizations through various activities planned throughout the year.
 
I am proud and honoured to represent the Rotary Club of Prague International and I wish a very warm welcome to you all.
Sanan
President
