Program: Taiwan and the United States

Director General Huang provided an interesting and relevant talk about the important relationship between Taiwan and the United States, touching on the growing threat of China to peace in the Indo-Pacific region, particularly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan.   Mr. Huang also talked about the stereotypes or misunderstandings about Taiwan.  Taiwan is a cosmopolitan country with diverse ethnic background.  The country is small, referencing that Colorado is 7.5 times larger than Taiwan with a population of 23.5 million people. (Colorado's population is 5.7 million).  It’s a crowded and competitive society.  In order to excel in Taiwan, you have to study hard.  On the other hand, the Taiwanese are a very happy people.  Our suicide rate is low. Taiwan is more sub-tropical geographically and the attitude of its people are more like South Pacific Islanders than other east Asian islanders.   Mr. Huang went on to address trade relations with the US, technological cooperation and supply chain challenges.  To hear the entire program presentation, click on the link below.

And the STAR Award goes to.....?
Congratulations to Rose Crispin on receiving this week's Rotary Club STAR Award.  Andres Puky presented the award to Rose, emphasizing her dedication to our club, serving in so MANY capacities.

Welcome to Longmont Rotary!
Since 1919, Longmont Rotary has served this community through service projects such as winter coat drives, bell-ringing for the Salvation Army, etc.

“Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
Our club, community, nation, and world need each one of us more than ever. I invite you to be a guest of our club by attending one of our meetings, enjoying our fellowship, and finding out how we can make our community, nation, and the world a better place.

Together, we will make a difference!
