On the 30th of June, the very last day of her Rotary Calvia Presidency, Gertrude Edtstadler-Pietsch, presented RCEMI with its official bell.
It is part of Rotary tradition for the patron club to provide a new one with its bell. Because of the Covid crisis, Gerdi had been ‘nursing’ the bell at her home for some months and was desperate that she had the honour to make the presentation to RCEMI first president Reinhart Menzel. It is a island Rotary tradition that the bell should be named after the first president’s wife, hence the one at RCEMI will be called Heide.
To mark the occasion, RCEMI had a special video made which can be seen at: https://youtu.be/U2TTh7GVM9U
