Central Heads Up - Nov 6

Members, friends and partners in service, it is always our great pleasure to write to you. We will start off by apologizing for the challenges we have had with our meeting venue during the month of October. The problem has since been sorted and we will be using our usual venue at the Rotary Centre for our meetings.
It’s been a while since we last shared highlights on whats happening in our club. We will roll back to the beginning of the month, the 4th of October where we had our Power Seminar. The theme of the event was “Simple Practical Growth”, which focused on the simple and practical things that we as young men and women need to do to achieve our goals in life.

Featuring on the Guest Speakers list was Rotary Club of Msasa President and renowned financial education expert, Gabriel Chipara, Past Assistant Governor and marketing guru, Lindah Longwe, dynamic conference and motivational speaker and award winning scientist, Professor Dexter Tagwireyi and last but not least, choreographer and founder of Lifestyle Dance Studio and Events, Josh Saunyama.
Despite a low turnout to the event, we had a really great session and learned a lot from the speakers. We even enjoyed a little dance session led by Josh who left everyone in the room begging for more of his spectacular dance moves. All the speakers were great, really awesome and there was never a moment during the presentations we didn’t enjoy. A special thanks goes to Past President Farirai Nyamukapa who played a big role in making the event a success. Rotaract needs more members like her.

Having had a successful power seminar, now the club looks ahead to more programs in the month of November and of note is Movember, a challenge to men to grow mustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for men’s health programs.
So in this month of Movember, our club challenges men to grow a mustache for the 30-days of November, thereby changing their appearance and the face of men’s health. On the 1st of Movember, all Mo Bros will start their Mo growing journey with a clean shaven face.

Then for the entire hairy month, these selfless and generous men known as Mo Bros, effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of Movember. Through their growing efforts they raise awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, by prompting conversations wherever they go. Another crucial part of being a Mo Bro is to raise funds for men’s health. Men donate their face, and much like taking part in a run or a walk for charity, ask their family and friends to sponsor their efforts.
Movember is not just for men. The women of Movember are known as Mo Sistas. They play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved. They can also participate by raising funds and awareness themselves. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo. Collectively, we will all be known as Mo-taractors.

More things happening in November; club services has planned for an Indian themed cuisine scheduled for Saturday, the 8th of November, at Treasurer Penny’s dwelling ;), address to be provided. The cost for this event is $3. For the event, you will be required to wear Indian gear. Just some guidelines: No Red Indians, pocahotties or Indian warriors – it is considered to be offensive. For ladies, if you don’t have an Indian outfit, bright solid colors are common as well as sequence and shiny clothes. Lots of jewelry, particularly gold.
