Something for every Rotarian
For the first time in 5 years, the Rotary International Convention returns to the USA! It will be held in Atlanta, and will feature a celebration of the Rotary Foundation Centennial. If you have never been to a Rotary International Convention, this is a great time to do it. You will have a chance to meet Rotarians from over 130 countries, and make new Rotary friends while renewing old acquaintances. In addition, you will hear about exciting club projects from around the world and share what your club is doing. The general and breakout sessions are world class and the House of Friendship offers amazing chances to learn and share. We hope that 40 to 50 Rotarians and guests will attend from District 7190. Register soon since this will be a truly popular Convention!
Rotary Serving Humanity – John Germ, Rotary International President, 2016-17
Happy New Year! We have a great new theme for this Rotary year, one we can all easily understand and relate to: Rotary Serving Humanity. It’s what we do in Rotary every day in our communities and around the world. And it’s self-explanatory!
Nina and I recently returned from the Rotary International Convention in Seoul, South Korea. We were joined there by two other District 7190 Rotarians, Chris Trow from Glenville and CC Chen from Colonie Guilderland. It was a wonderful convention and the Koreans really laid out the red carpet for us. Though I have not heard the final total, there were at least 45,000 Rotarians and guests registered, making Seoul one of the best attended RI Conventions. Everything ran like clockwork and, like all RI Conventions, was an amazing place to meet wonderful Rotarians and learn what Rotary is really all about. The closing session of the Convention was inspiring and I urge everyone of you to watch President Ravi’s closing remarks. They will certainly touch you deeply as they did the thousands in the room who heard him. Here’s the link to the speech, http://video.rotary.org/guA6/ri-president-ravindran-closing-remarks/. We have also attached the printed copy under the stories tab. Please watch the video, you will be forever changed.
Have a great summer, Serving Humanity!
DG John Mucha
