Cooking for Peace - Final Phase Has Started

It's been a while...yes, that is true.

Both of our clubs had been extremely busy with so many things.

In Istanbul the preparation and performing of the annual International Youth Forum in May took time from all the members - additionally to all the other running projects.

In Bremen it was the same with the Charity Run - all powers were hold here.

Additionally we had applied together with our Twin Club Relationship for the "Twin Club Award", an annual competition held by the European Rotaract Information Centre (E.R.I.C.) - and made it to the final 3! Very cool! But it also means work, because we have the possibility to present our idea in two different occasions in Rome during the European Convention (EuCo), which means preparing presentations and so on.

And last but not least: our project "Cooking for Peace" turned out to be much more work than previously believed. Cooking all the wonderful recipes we received - like we originally planned - didn't work out, so we decided we had to break it down to one recipe per participating club. We cooked and cooked and cooked - and gained pounds and experience. Some recipes didn't work out as planned at the first time, so we had to repeat them, which brought more work.

Last Monday the last recipe was finally cooked - about 6 weeks later than planned. Since then we are layouting the book, talking to printers, begging them to print in a very short time enough books for us to take to Rome.

This week therefore meant working night shifts - or as we also like to say: "Service Above Sleep".

We hope the final product will be as good as we imagined, and we really hope you all will like it.
