Graz 2012

DANKE to IMFR          THANK YOU IMFR             Weiz, February 9, 2013




Grüß Gott! 

Dear Rotarian IMFR friends,

First of all, I would like to thank all of you for the generous donations given by the “Peace Marathon” participants. It has been a great honor for the District 1910 and for me that Graz has been chosen for the marathon 2012 and I hope we were proficient hosts.

Besides the sophisticated Austria (eastern parts of Vienna and Graz) the District 1910 also covers the lesser developed Bosnia Herzegovina (BH). BH is still suffering from the consequences of the war in the 90´s. The total population of BH conducts 4.5 million inhabitants and in the whole country  you will find only 240 Rotarians.

An important contribution for further development is education. Therefore I have launched a scholarship foundation for Bosnian students which has also profited from your donations. Your contribution has made a year’s course of studies for one student possible. Thank you very much!

At the same time, I would like you to accept me as a new member of your Fellowship. I am bound and determined to run more after my year as a Governor.

Kind Rotarian regards



Herbert Ederer

Governor District 1910
