RCBC had its first fellowship trip visiting Anjar, passing through Kefraya winery & German Schneller school on the way.

As People of Action, Rotarians in Lebanon are always there to lend a helping hand when needed. In these unprecedented times in our country, the Association of Lebanese Rotary Clubs (ALRC) received 2 tons of Infant Formula from Chile through RC de Beyrouth. These donations were shared with all the clubs in Lebanon for the benefit of all communities.
The first donation was allocated in a ceremony at the USJ Campus under the auspices of the Ambassador of Chile to Lebanon and the Lebanese Ambassador to Chile. 
The recipient of this kind of donation was AGBU Ahramjian Dispensary in Dora, Beirut.
     Our club RC Beirut Cosmopolitan was honored with the first visit that the District Governor planned for Lebanon. DG Ashot Karapetyan ( D2452), per tradition, met on July 14, RCBC Board of Directors followed by meeting with the general club membership. During this meeting, the DG shared the general mission statement of Rotary, the theme of this year- Serve to Save Lives- and stressed the importance of Membership Engagement, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. He also highlighted that now more than ever is the best time to grow Rotary because communities across the globe are in dire need of our help after the ravages of the pandemic.
     RCBC President Sona Kourtian presented to the DG the strategic plan for RY 21-22, her focus on Education as her theme for the year, and the plans of all committees in our club. DG Ashot complemented our work and urged us to carry on with our remarkable record of service projects and Global Grants.
RCBC President Sona Kourtian conducted the first Club General Assembly for the RY 2021-2022. This was a hybrid meeting that allowed club members abroad to attend & participate. Due to the current health and economic circumstances, the club will keep on conducting weekly meetings virtually for the first few months of the year.
The President welcomed all the members and presented her strategic plan for the year highlighting EDUCATION IN LEBANON as the major theme for this year. She introduced all the committees whose chairpersons were given the floor to outline their plans. As always, RCBC is forging ahead full steam with an interesting program, strong service projects ideas, solid Global Grants ongoing and in the pipeline, with focus on re-igniting the fellowship activities that were dormant under the Covid cloud.
