The Rotary movement first began on 23rd February 1905, when a young lawyer, Paul Harris organized the first Rotary Club “in fellowship and friendship” with three clients and local businessmen. Harris soon realised that Rotary needed a greater purpose.

This year Rotary International celebrated its 114th anniversary and as Rotary Club of Kyrenia Cosmopolitan, we attended this ceremony to celebrate.  During the ceremony three of our members were awarded with the Paul Harris Fellow award: Rotarian Behiye Müftüzade, Past President Gültaç Özsan and Aybars Kutluba, it was a great honour for our Club to be recognised for its members’ achievements.

Pelin Kutluba was also pinned at the ceremony and she has now become our newest member of Rotary Club of Kyrenia Cosmopolitan.
