Longest M artenitza organizers and friends after a success of the project

The Rotaract Club Sofia International successfully implemented a joint project with the aim to make the longest martenitza. Martenitza is an old Bulgarian artefact that symbolizes health, luck and prosperity and is often made out of 2 ribbons interwinded together – white (pureness) and red (life). The tradition in Bulgaria is to give every person you know at least 1 bracelet Martenitza by notting it on the person’s hand. The Rotaract Club Sofia Internatinal together with its partners came up with the idea to try to knot together as many as possible martenitza in order to make the longest martenitza ever made. The initiative was supported by the Rotarian families and clubs in District 2482 and also it was under the high patronage of the District-Governor of D2482 for 2010-2011 – Mr. Krasimir Ganchev.

Ductus Exemplo - Lead by Example - the motto of RAC Sofia International

The members of Rotaract Club Sofia International have chosen a motto for their club through voting and having in-depth discussions on the mottos that were proposed. The Rotaract Club Sofia International now has a motto that aims to describe and encourage its members. The motto is: “Ductus Exemplo” – Lead by example. Sometimes it can be hard and feel uncomfortable but you truly don’t know yourself until you test your body, mind and spirit.  Now before everyone starts thinking that we have been tipping back the wine, getting all philosophical and introspective, we believe there is an extremely valuable life lesson to be learned by testing yourself.
