Road Trip Revs Up Interest in Rotary
Read this report on the recent nine-day "Rollin’ With Rotary" tour Aug 1-9. The trip was a direct outgrowth of Rotary’s Young Professionals Summit. At some stops, the team delivered educational messages about the good that Rotary does and at others they contacted Rotary members and solicited ideas for attention-getting activities in their areas.
“Our aim was to make Rotary look cool, hip, and relevant."
Helen Reisler, Past President of RCNY (2001-02) and Past Governor of District 7230, has been reappointed as a Rotary International Representative to the United Nations for the 9th time.
Helen is involved in coordinating "Rotary/UN Day" each November. She has enhanced the Youth Program and moderated panels such as "Peace and Conflict Resolution," "Youth and Peace." etc. Helen is a much requested international speaker and ambassador for Rotary International and The Rotary Club of New York.
