Rotary Fellowships Month - Make New Friends around the World

Rotary Fellowships Month - June is designated as “Rotary Fellowships Month” by the RI Board to recognize the importance of international fellowship and good will among Rotarians with similar recreational interests, vocations, and health and medical issue-oriented interests, to promote increased participation in fellowships and increase understanding of this program.  The RI Board encourages fellowships groups to highlight activities through projects, activities, and events in celebration of “Rotary Fellowships Month” in June.
 
“Fellowship is wonderful; it illuminates life’s pathway, spreads good cheer, and is worth high price.”
-Rotary Founder Paul Harris

Rotary International will make your club’s July 2016 invoice available online around the middle of July. RI uses the membership data that’s in Rotary’s database as of 1 July to generate the invoice, so you need to make sure that your club’s information is current by then. Having an accurate membership figure is vitally important — RI can no longer adjust invoices after they’re made available.

RI President K.R. Ravindran closed the convention in Korea on Wednesday, 1 June, with a poignant story about his mother's fight to survive polio at age 30.
 
When Ravindran was 11 years old in his native Sri Lanka, his mother awoke one day feeling weak and short of breath. Sitting down to rest, she found herself unable to move. The polio virus had quickly invaded her nervous system, resulting in paralysis.
 
 
Convention attendees were treated to a surprise visit from Paul Harris during the opening session of the Korea convention on Sunday, 29 May.

An animated hologram of Rotary's founder joined RI President K.R. Ravindran on stage, and proceeded to talk about Rotary's growth from a small club in Chicago to an international organization that is changing the world.
 
 
 
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was among the first to welcome Rotary members and friends to the 107th Rotary Convention, heralded as one of the largest-ever gatherings of Rotarians and the most multicultural assembly of nonprofit leaders in Korea.
 
He offered a message of gratitude: “Rotarians do remarkable work around the world,” Ban told the thousands of attendees gathered at KINTEX, the Korea International Exhibition and Convention Center in Goyang city, on the outskirts of Seoul. “You help the United Nations reach our goals, and you help the world understand the United Nations.”
