David Martins GuerreiroAlmancil International Rotary Club members recently attended a school year awards ceremony for pupils attending Escola EB 2/3 Dr Antonio de Sousa Agostinho in Almancil. The ceremony held at the beautiful Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Fátima in Almancil, courtesy of Padre George, was attended by proud parents and AIRC members.

A break in the clouds for Algarve Senior BikersFinally a break in rain clouds allowed the Algarve Senior Bikers to stage the postponed October ride on Wednesday the 7th of November.
Many of the members had left home in wet or damp conditions to ride to the meeting point in Sao Marcos de Serra. However, as forecast, while enjoying a coffee at the start of the ride the weather cleared leaving bright sunny conditions for the rest of the day even if a little chilly in the hills.

Rotary Summer Camp Scheme 2018In 2008 Almancil International Rotary Club, (AIRC) for the first time joined with other Portuguese Rotary clubs in sponsoring young students to participate in the Rotary Summer Camp Scheme. The camps are organised by Rotary clubs all over the world, with the aim of introducing young students to their counterparts from different countries and cultures. In that first year AIRC sponsored two students to attend a camp in Manchester in the UK. 

Since then the number of applications has grown exponentially. This year AIRC Rotarians Dr Raymond Parfait and Patricia Doling, together with Sra Lourdes Seidenstricker of Dra Laura Ayres School in Quarteira had the unenviable task of interviewing 22 students, from which 18 were chosen to spend two weeks at camps which included Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Slovakia and, of course, Manchester in the UK. The total number of students attending for the whole of Portugal was 27.

RDA is moving to new arenasHaving thought long and hard about its future as a charitable Association, Riding for the Disabled in the Algarve (Associação de Equitação para Deficientes no Algarve) has decided to move its therapy sessions in order to ensure it can offer the best riding environment to its participants.

Therefore, when the new riding year begins in October, RDA (AEDA) riding therapy will be held at Albufeira Riding Centre in Vale Navio and Centro Hipico Vilamoura.
