We are thrilled to announce that the Paphos Aphrodite Rotary Club has sponsored Maria Yakimovich to represent Cyprus in this year's prestigious Europe 4 Europe (E4E) program!
 
 
The E4E program is an incredible initiative that brings together young leaders from across Europe to explore six EU countries. Participants gain a deeper understanding of the continent's diverse cultures, rich histories, and shared values. This journey not only broadens their horizons but also fosters meaningful connections that transcend borders.
Maria shared her experience with us: "The 2024 E4E trip through six EU states was an incredibly eye-opening experience. I am deeply grateful to the organizers and the Paphos Rotary, especially Carol and Thorsten, for nominating me. This journey offered profound insights into Europe's diverse cultures and histories, changing my perspective and forming unbreakable bonds with new friends across the EU and beyond. Thank you for this life-changing opportunity."
Join us in congratulating Maria on this amazing achievement and wishing her continued success in all her future endeavors!
 
 
 
On Saturday June 22nd we had our Handover Dinner at Palia ILektriki Restaurant-cafe
 
We started the evening by presenting cheques to two of the main charities we support, The Friends Hospice and The Autistic Society. PP Ian welcomed our guests Christine Burling RIDN, PDG Christina Covotsou-Patroclou, PPs Joachim and Nairy from Nicosia Aspelia RC, our AG Snezana Cvetkovic and P Jelena from Limassol Berengaria Cosmopolitan RC and Claudia from Rotary E Club Silicon Valley.
 
After a delicious buffet dinner thanks to Vasillia and Vassos, President Reda Youssef handed over the chain of office to our incoming President Timo Trog.
 
We had another special event during the evening as we welcomed our newest member Andre Passon who was pinned by P Timo.
 
Our new President is full of exciting new ideas and initiatives and we are sure will have a very successful year. Andre has already shown himself to be a keen and enthusiastic member and we are all looking forward to a new year for our Club.
 
Thank you to all that made the evening a success!
 
 
 
We were very pleased to welcome DDG Tastan at last week's meeting. IP Timo presented his new Board and his ideas for projects during his year of office. The projects were discussed and after other business was finished, we ended the evening with a fun quiz.
 
Recent visitors to our Club were Viv and Tony Moore from Ironbridge Rotary Club. In Shropshire UK. Previous residents of Cyprus, Viv was a member of Limassol Berengeria Cosmopolitan RC, and they are both friends of Carol who was pleased to welcome them.
 
Our 27th Anniversary Dinner became a night of awards and surprises!
 
PPs Thorsten and Ian were awarded PHFs, and PPs George and Carol were awarded Sapphire PHFs.
 
After a wonderful meal with members and guests, thanks to the staff at The Lodge, there were speeches and presentations before the cake was cut by our longest serving member Pantelis, and our newest member and incoming President Timo.
Congratulations to those who received much deserved recognition.
 
We can't wait to see what next year will bring!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Happy Easter our Rotarians and friends of Rotary 
 
A big Thank You to all those who organised, attended and supported our Race Night last Thursday. It was a great event and we raised over €900 for Shelterbox.
 
 
 
On Wednesday, 28th February we met Jacek Telenga and his wife from the Rotary Club Lublin Centrum in the Capital Coast Hotel in Paphos. We discussed our clubs, projects and of course we also exchanged our banners. Hopefully we will meet soon again. 
 
As many of us are travelling and are not always available for personal meetings in Paphos we offered our members and friends our monthly online meeting again. This time we welcomed Charlie from Margate, UK again. 
We will continue doing online meetings once a month again.
