Rotary International President Ian Riseley invites you to the Rotary Presidential Conference on Environmental Sustainability & Peace,  Vancouver, BC,  Friday to Sunday February 9 – 11, 2018.   

In February 2018, the eyes of the Rotary World will be on Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  Zones 24 and 25 will host the Presidential Conference on Environmental Sustainability and Peace—one of six international peacebuilding conferences planned for the 2017-2018 Rotary year.  President Ian Riseley has made environmental sustainability a major focus for his year and we are honored that he has chosen Vancouver to hold the first Presidential Conference on this key area.
Over 1,000 Rotarians from the US, Canada and around the world will come together at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. They will join scientists, world leaders in climate control, those responsible for the protection of our environment, government and business leaders, scholars and peacebuilders at this important event. Attendees will have ample opportunity to interact with experts in the field and to take part in an environmental project in and around Vancouver.

Welcome to Richland Rotary it is my honor and privilege to serve as this year’s president.  My name is Diahann Howard. I am a born and raised Tri-Citian and have been in our club for 9 years.  Richland Rotary is 74 members that consists of community leaders of all ages and backgrounds serving each other along with our community by seeking to give back.  We serve with a vision to bring peace and hope to the world, we have the conviction to make this happen by our activities within our community such as the Mid-Columbia Duck Race, educational scholarships, providing coats for children, feeding the hungry and upgrading facilities that serve the homeless in our region.  Our international projects to bring clean water, shelter boxes to areas devastative by natural disasters or helping to end polio; and finally a shared commitment that we can best do this together. 

Being a Richland Rotarian you are a part of our rotary family.  If you desire to learn from a diverse group of community leaders and want to help us grow a healthy and active service club for the Richland community, join us!  If you are seeking to grow your own leadership skills, travel, contribute to local or international projects and give back then this is your opportunity!

With all that seeks to divide us Rotary is a neutral space that is authentic and focused on what really matters-people and making the world a better place.  So, if you are seeking a place to reset, take a break from social media and engage in real life conversation, an hour each week to remind yourself of what is truly important, sing songs, hear quirky jokes and have some fun please know you have found a home and friends with Richland Rotary Club. 
It is our time to step up to create a life that matters, join us today! No experience necessary!

What the Rotary Wheel Represents
The Rotary wheels has been a symbol since 1922.  It represents “Civilization and Movement”, in 1923 the gear wheel was introduced with 24 cogs and six spokes, however a group of engineers advised that this would be mechanically unsound and would not work without a “keyway” in the center to attach it to a power shaft.  Therefore, in 1923 the design was formally adopted as the Rotary International emblem.
