Congratulations to our new and old president Juergen Krekeler who will serve the club with his team for another year. We therefore had only a nice fellowship and not a big handover event. Great evening and a big thanks to the team at the Acropolis Tavern.
 
 
On Sunday, 26th June 2022, during the 4th Honey & Beekeeping Festival of Odou, the Official Opening of the "Bee Life" "Μέλισσα Ζωή" Queen Bee Artificial Insemination Center and Honey Quality Control Laboratory took place. DDG Peter Ashdjian gave an opening speech giving insight on the conception of the idea one year ago by Cyprus Rotary Clubs and the Bank of Cyprus. He noted the valuable contribution that the Center will bring in cooperation with government and local Officials and thanked all parties for their help to make the "Bee Life" Center a reality, with special mentions for Ora's Community Leader, Mr. Menelaos Philippou, the president of Troodos Network, the president of the Cyprus Beekeepers Association Παγκύπριος Σύνδεσμος Μελισσοκόμων - Κέντρο Μελισσοκομίας Κύπρου and all Rotarians involved.
The Center is a collaboration of the Rotary clubs of Cyprus with the Bank of Cyprus that will offer a new dynamic in bee reproduction, restoration of the lost bee hives, protection of the native Cypriot bee and improvement in the quality of Cypriot honey.
 
 
 
At our last meeting, some of our members and guests found our speaker's topic very interesting and thought provoking. Thank you to Derek Holt who spoke to us about the stigma of mental health issues and lack of support and understanding in our society, also the struggle to get apporopriate treatment. There were many questions raised afterwards, and Derek was warmly thanked by President Juergen.
 
 
Our members and visitors enjoyed a meze and fellowship evening in Emba Village. President Juergen welcomed our visitors and exchanged banners with our special guest DDG Hassan Airais from RC of Dubai.
 
 
Last Sunday we planted more than 200 trees in the beautiful village of Letymbou. Thanks to all the volunteers for their attendance and made this happen, Paphos Aphrodite Rotary for the donation of the trees and the Community of Letymbou and 100,000 trees for Paphos, for the co-organization. It was good fund and the weather was perfect.
 
 
This Sunday we will plant trees in Letymbou village and we will start at 10.00 am. Hope you will join us and help make Cyprus greener. 
 
In December last year the Paphos Aphrodite Rotary Club decided again to support Shelterbox (https://www.shelterbox.org/) and our club donated Euro 500 to this worthwhile charity.
 
In 2012, ShelterBox became Rotary International’s first Project Partner and remains the only disaster relief charity.
 
As you can see our club has supported Shelterbox for many years:
 
2006      our Box went to Islamabad, Pakistan
2010      our Box went to Haiti - For those made homeless by the devastating earthquake
2014      our box helped in the below destinations:
 
               - Pakistan - To assist those affected by flooding.
               - Niger - To assist those affected by conflict.
 
2020      the donated money will help Shelterbox in several countries
 
Right now, more than 113 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.
 
By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.
 
We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster.
 
If you like to support Shelterbox please donate.
