Rotaract and Rotary Celebrating 100 years of Madiba Magic

18 July in South Africa and the world in known as Mandela Day in memory of our countries first democratically elected President and Apartheid struggle leader. This past Wednesday South Africa celebrated 100 years of Madiba’s Magic that continues to live on in his memory.

This past week our Club together with our partners in Interact and Rotaract handed out stationary to learners of Isiphiwo Primary School in Khayelitsha, Rotaract Wynberg spoiled the nurses of Victoria Hospital with chocolates and Steenberg Rotaract with our Interact Clubs cleaned Muizenberg and Sunrise Beach Cape Town.

Mandela lead the country to a peaceful transition of power on ideals of equality and the spirit of humanity. This spirit of humanity is what we come together for every year and invest 67 minutes in to the community. We celebrate 67 minute to celebrate the years that Mandela gave to public service.

Rotary International President Barry Rassin theme to Rotary is “be the Inspiration”. How wonderful that South Africa had Mandela to inspire us and to have that spirit live in us all.
