The Rotary Day was celebrated on 8 April 2018 starting with a peace walk. Nearly 500 people participated - these included Rotarians, Interactors, Family and Friends of Rotary and the general public. All were dressed in traditional or international costumes. The walk commenced from the Leaning Tower in the town square and concluded in school hall. There the best dressed participants were selected and given hampers. The children had a colouring competition and the winners were given awards. Free health screening was provided, and the local hospital had a blood donation drive and registration for organ donation. All the participants had an opportunity to view the projects done by the club and learn about promoting peace in themselves, in their community and the world. The project was covered by the local press and appeared in three newspapers. It was appreciated by the local member of Parliament who was the guest of honour.
On 11 August 2016 Rotarian Paramanathan was installed as the 65th President of the Rotary Club of Teluk Intan by District Governor Darul Abdullah. One hundred and twenty Rotarians and guests attended the banquet at the Lower Perak Club. Among those present were Interactors from the four Interact Clubs, Principals and Teacher advisors. The Rotary Club of Yala, Thailand was represented by eight members led by their club President Yossakorn Teppabut. Also present were members from the Rotary Club of Trichy, India; Rotary Club Sitiawan, Rotary Club of Seri Changkat Jong, Rotary Club of Lake Gardens Kuala Lumpur and Rotary Club of Greentown.
The aim of this project is to ensure that there are adequate number of trained people in the community who are able to provide First Aid and CPR till medical help arrives. This will save many lives that are lost because no active First Aid and CPR is provided during a medical emergency. On 19 September 2015, 150 students and members of the public were trained by trainers from the St. John Ambulance. After the theoretical lectures they had to practise the skills that they had learned on mannequins. Those certified competent were awarded certificates. 18 members of the Rotary Club of Teluk Intan participated. The Guest of Honour was the local State Assemblyman. The project generated good publicity.
