“The Dawn of a new day has approached, another rotary year has commenced, one may ask, what is up the sleeves of Rotaract UPSA in this year? It is one and would always be which service to humanity for in it lies the Profit we enjoy?”

These were the words that echoed in the corridors of the University of Professional Studies Campus when PP Mary handed over to me the mantle of servitude.

Standing there today is with a different purpose and mission…

On the 12th of October 1994, Rotary club of Accra East gave birth to a club a club that has produces great personalities that are occupying both the Rotaract District and National office.

With the selfless nurturing of the Club in accordance with the four way test and the object of Rotary *(Recite Off head), Rotaract UPSA has blazed the trail in several areas and chartered a course that are based strictly on the ideals of rotary.

Under various Presidents, we have undertaken Projects and programmes running into thousands of Ghana Cedis.

I say a very big thank you to all 19 past Presidents for holding the fort for us to be able to be part of this big family as we contribute our quota in making the world a better place to live in.

Also to all Past Rotarian Presidents immense thanks to you for standing with us up to this 20th year of our existence as a club.

In the past 20 years, we have grown form strength to strength,

In the past 20 years, our most active members have gained valuable experience in leadership and organization and have developed technical skills through voluntary work

In the past 20 years, all of our members have benefited from the work of Rotary Volunteers,

In the past 20 years, we have become a well known and a respected club among other clubs in Ghana,

In the past 20 years, our structure, events and communication media had gained tremendous momentum

In the past 20 years, we have been able to give something back ot our society

On such even birthdays, it is normal to reflect upon the past and thing about the future.

I am not clairvoyant but I am convinced that Rotaract UPSA has a long important future ahead of it, especially when the club keeps it various facets in accordance with Rotary international standards and has a good blend of Professional interest, friendships, Volunteerism and the desire to give something back.
