For over 100 years, Rotary International is an organization of composed of men and women whose motto is “Service Above Self”. The tradition wants that these people meet every week around a meal to organize and plan their actions. For about a dozen years now, some Rotarians are meeting via the Internet and their actions are just as involved as before. These new clubs, about 145 of them in eight different languages are called Rotary e-Clubs. The first eClub in France started last year in Limoges.
Emmanuel Serrière, a member of the first e-Club of the world [Rotary eClub One] lives with his wife in Salernes half of the year. He is a full fledge Rotarian and visits time-to-time local clubs. Each Rotary eClub members is offered the opportunity to request funds for a local cause. Serrière heard about the great Horizon’s plan wishing to create a computer lab to help with access to new technologies. Some students have homework involving Internet research but yet do not have a computer or Internet connection at home. This lab will be a great tool to put all children on an even material and cultural level.
Serrière was able to secure a $500 grant and a transfer in Euros was made to Horizon’s bank account in the name of the Rotary eClub One, one of the club of District 5450, Colorado.
