'People of Action' campaign
 
Help us launch Rotary's new 'People of Action' campaign
 
Rotary has created a new global ad campaign called "People of Action." The campaign is based on research that revealed that while many people have heard of Rotary, few actually understand what Rotary clubs do. By downloading the materials in the Brand Center, you can begin telling your club's story in a consistent, compelling way. Here's what you need to know.
 
Inclusive Playground kick-off
 
We had a great kickoff to "Make It Happen" - building an Inclusive Playground in Richardson's Cottonwood Park. Because of two donations - one of them a surprise - we reached 10 percent of our fund-raising goal on the first day of the effort. The City of Richardson and Richardson East Rotary Club (RERC) are collaborating on this playground. The City has funds to replace the aging Cottonwood Park playground with a standard facility. The joint effort is taking it further, building an inclusive playground where children, adults and seniors of all abilities can play and have great access, side-by-side. The photos are from RERC's first annual picnic to promote the playground. We had about 150 people eating and enjoying the bounce house, face painter and balloon artist under the trees at beautiful Cottonwood Park. Keep watching this page and our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/RichardsonEast) to find ways you can help "Make It Happen."
Young Leaders in Action | The biggest event of the year!
Over forty thousand Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, alumni, and leaders from around the world gathered in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. At the general sessions and workshops, on social media, and in the House of Friendship, they shared ideas, learned from world class leaders, and made new friends. Check out the highlights and get inspired for another amazing Rotary year:
  • Bill Gates inspires the world to join the final push to end polio.
  • During Rotaract Preconvention breakout sessions Rotaractors learned how to craft the perfect sales pitch for Rotaract.
  • Rotary President-elect Ian Riseley addressed the important role of Rotaractors in Rotary and looked ahead to Rotaract’s 50th anniversary in 2017-18.
  • Dr. Bernice A. King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, received a standing ovation at the Presidential Peace Conference.
  • Rotaractor Brittany Arthur shares the importance of Rotary Alumni to the Rotary family during a plenary session.
  • Find inspiration around every corner in Toronto – register now for the 2018 Rotary International Convention.
