‘WEAR HELMET, SAVE LIFE!’
Our club distributed helmets to 200 Motorcycle Pilots from North Goa. We were privileged to have Shri Sudin Dhavalikar, Hon’ble Minister for Transport, Govt of Goa and Shri Sidharth Kunkolienker, Hon’ble MLA, Panaji constituency, and Shri Suresh Thakur, President, Goa Pilots Association, to do the honours. The formal event was followed by a bike rally in the city of Panaji.
These pilots are an integral part of the Goan society and the best ambassadors to carry the message of helmet’s importance. Rotary Panaji Riviera remains committed to community service projects that helps the masses.
