There are several generational differences between Rotarians and Rotaractors.  Most unsuccessful interactions between Rotaractors and Rotarians occur because of the unability for the two generations to take interest in their activties while recognizing and appreciating their difference.  For this reason, the Rotaractors of district 4070 have come up with a list of ideas to trigger inspiration and offer insight in how to become closer to the Rotarians in your district.

 If you have tried to directly run your own international projects instead of just signing a cheque to your usual cause, you know just what a challenge it can be to pick appropriate international projects and fundraise for it.  Typical problems include members not feeling particularly strong about any given project, lack of commitment to follow-through with project, difficulty in collaborating with other organizations, and designing the fundraising project itself. 

 The Rotaractors ofdistrict 7040 have put together a series of recommendations to keep in mind when undertaking an international project.

During the Rotaract District Conference 2008 of the district 4070 (Ontario, Quebec, and NY), a team of Rotaractors from across the district got together to discuss the opportunities Rotaractors had at every level of the organization to get involved in the community and the world, and gain friendships and new skills.  The results of their discussion were sumed up under the form of a table.

Making every Rotaractor aware of the possibilities open to him is a great way to encourage your Rotaractors to pursue their involvement with the club and to get better trained, more motivated members.  And after all -- if we can help our members, by sharing all this great information with them -  why not do it?

Relishing the gastronomic delights offered at various Indian, Mexican, French, Chinese and a collection of other restaurants in Montreal, I made an interesting observation: the majority of the people savouring the delightful and rich cuisine offered at these restaurants were mostly those who did not belong to the community to which the restaurant food was specific to. This particular aspect showed me how curious we all are for taking pleasure in diversity, especially when it has to do with something ‘exotic’ and ‘foreign’. Think about the large volumes of embroider handicrafts and eastern clothing designs that sell in western countries, the Latino dance styles like salsa evoke a good amount of enthusiasm and so does the classical Indian music in many of its forms, not to miss out on the runaway success hip hop giving traces Afro-American culture and music and of course the middle eastern Hookah acting as the new generation aroma candy.
