Ajetaan iäkkään iloksi project.
Pandemic years 2020-21 have been very challenging also to our club’s service project “Ajetaan iäkkään iloksi”. However, much to our delight were able to offer one field trip to our dear friends at Ilveskoti during the year 2021. On 9th November we embarked on a field trip by bus due to the large number of participants and we used our District 1390 grant given to our club in order to be able to continue this great social project. Field trip was to the Finnish Hunting Museum in Riihimäki and trip was a huge success.
In spring 2019 our club started a social Project ”Ajetaan iäkkään iloksi” The Rotarians provide transport services to senior citizens to interesting places in Hämeenlinna area. The first session took place in May 2019. About ten residents of rest home Ilveskoti visited Car Museum Vehoniemi apprx. 50 km from Hämeenlinna. The trip was very successful and both the senior citizens and Rotarians enjoyed the day. Ajetaan iäkkään iloksi-Project will continue.
