|Congratulations to the Mangalore Chapter of the Rotary Club International who are dedicating so much for the cause of Education and Charity all over the world.|
The Rotarian as well as the Lions do so much for the cause of humanity, and in a country such as India the needy and deserving people, both young and old, have so much to benefit.
It is our sincere desire that during our future visits to Mangalore we need to take part more actively in the Rotary Club as well as Lions Club activities, and share with them so much that Rotarians as well as the Lions contribute towards so many noteworthy causes.
God bless the Rotarians as well as the Lions of the world.
