Our new Club officially received its Charter from the President of Rotary International Barry Rassin, on 19 January 2019.  Our Club is the first new Club in the District that received its Charter since 2010 - a big achievement for the District.  Our Club came into being through the untiring efforts of the Rotary Advisor, Bina Ahmad - a long-time Rotarian in the Rotary Club of Yonkers-East Yonkers.  She is also the incoming First Lady of the District.  District Governor-Elect Mahbub Ahmad fully supported her initiative and efforts and was in tough with Rotary Headquarters in Evanston, Illinois to get the paperwork completed.
As the Club organizes itself,  the Charter President is Rtn. M. Nurul Alam while Rtn. Mati Pal is the Treasurer and Dr. Fazlur R. Chowdhury is the Secretary.  There are 20 Charter members.  In the coming days, applications will be filed with the IRS and New York State for the required certifications.  Once those are in hand, a charter ceremony will be organized.  It is expected that  District Governor Krishnan Chittur will formally present the Charter Certificate and induct the Officers and members into the Rotary family.
