TREE PLANTATION DRIVE

A tree plantation drive was organised by NSS unit of Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil College, Vashi in their premises along with Rotary Club of Satellite City (RCSC) Navi Mumbai on Sunday, 03rd August. RCSC organised to bring about 50 saplings of indigenous variety, which were planted on the periphery of the playground of Karamveer Bhaurao Patil College. Professor Kori, head NSS unit of the college welcomed the RCSC initiative of tree plantation and creating awareness of environment friendliness in the society. In his address, Immediate Past President of RCSC Rtn Kedarnath Rao Ghorpade said that trees are man’s best friend. And so it was coincidental that the tree plantation activity was also being organised on International Friendship Day. Environment, Water and Sanitation is one of the thrust areas of Rotary Club’s District 3140 for the current year. RCSC President, Rtn Diwakar Singh in his speech shortlisted some other areas like traffic awareness, blood donation and pledging organ donation where RCSC can work closely with Karamveer Bhaurao Patil College. The tree plantation drive was attended by about 150 students.
