Members of the delegation of Rotary District 1913 visited us in Veliki Zitnik on Friday, 12th September 2014: Mr John Kenny, President of the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International for the period 2011-2015 and President of Rotary International for the period 2009-2010, with his wife Mrs June Kenny, Mrs Vlatka Cikac, Head of Board Youth Service of District 1913 and Mr Darko Separovic, Head of Board Rotary Foundation of District 1913.
The topic of discussion was the renovation of the school building that the City of Gospic gave to OBC for 30 years of use. The project is performed by Rotary Club Zagreb and Rotary Club Zagreb Gradec and the major donor is the company Zagrebgradnja from Zagreb. The president of Outward Bound Croatia, Lovorka Simunec informed the delegation about the adaptation of school, which will be after the completion of the works used for the purpose of the Education Centre.
This is a continuation of cooperation with the Rotary Club after 2013 they donated a modern kitchen for OBC. Donors were Rotary Club Zagreb Gradec and Rotary Clubs from USA ( Rotary Club Rochester Minnesota-2 Clubs and Rotary Club Zumbrota). OBC will also participate in programs of the Summer camp for youth, organized by Youth Service of District 2013. Mrs Vlatka Cikac and collaborators from YS District 2013, together with OBC will define training programs for young people that will run from Spring 2015. In addition of the well-being for youth, programs will contribute to the work of OBC and to the economic development of this part of the region of Lika.
The delegation had the opportunity to see OB activities live, so they visited our members during the project “Reach Out for the Future”, which took place in Rizvanusa in Lika.
We thank all members of the delegation for the visit and aforementioned Rotary clubs for their support and assistance.
