During the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Chiangmai West, it was once again time to celebrate the birthdays of the month from the members. As it is custom at this club, it is giving for the underprivileged and not taking for these Rotarians. But from everybody, it comes straight from the heart. Rotarians do not just meet for fellowship but also to carry out a remarkable variety of humanitarian and educational service projects that touch people’s lives in their local community. (From left to right) Receiving the money is Treasurer and Past President Kriankrai Jarukitphiphat, P.P. Surachai Sureephong, P.P. Somjin Ruangkit, P.P. Prayoon Amphaiphant, and on the very right P.P. Veeraphon Thammakhoon.
