2020 has been a challenging year for all of us but now is the time to look forward to better days.
Here at Rotary Club Estoi Palace International we, like many others, have had to find new ways of doing things. We now hold our regular weekly meetings on Zoom but our traditional fundraising activities have been severely curtailed.
Whilst we were able to hold our annual Golf Tournament at Monte Rei Golf and Country Club it was with a new and restricted format to ensure the complete safety of the players. The Golf Event was a great success but our annual White Dinner (Jantar ao Branco) had to be cancelled along with our Quiz Night, Romantic Dinner, Fashion Show and our End Polio Bike Ride.
However we have been able to continue our support for those whose needs are greater than ours through a few online activities such as a Virtual Cat Show and, of course, the very generous donations from our supporters. You can see what we have been up to in our quarterly newsletters. You may also wish to check out our new eCard donation feature at www.rotaryestoipalace.org/ecards.
As we move towards the new year I remain optimistic that we will be able to continue our work. We will find new ways to achieve our fundraising targets and I am confident that 2021 will prove to be successful.
On behalf of all my colleagues at Rotary Club Estoi Place International I wish you and your family a very Happy Chrstmas and a healthy, prosperous New Year.
