Rotary International Convention

Would you like to enjoy a taste of French culture without traveling to France? You can do that right here in North America by attending the upcoming Rotary International Convention in Toronto, Canada, on June 24 through 27. You will rub shoulders with Rotarians from around the world at the convention. The convention schedule is filled with general sessions featuring reports by Rotary leaders and dignitaries as well as smaller breakout sessions on Rotary topics during which you can ask questions and contribute to the conversations. In addition, there will be time available when you can visit the House of Friendship where there are literally hundreds of booths publicizing club and district humanitarian projects, dispensing Rotary materials, advertising tours abroad, and selling a wide variety of products from around the world, including Rotary clothing, jewelry, logo pins, and more.

Opportunities will also be available for Rotarians to register for the next International Convention in Hamburg, Germany at a lower cost than will be offered at any later time. The atmosphere at the convention is always festive and made more so by many Rotarians wearing colorful, traditional clothing. Special events are also planned for Rotarians every evening. In fact, you may have difficulty choosing between two or more events offered at the same time. The Rotary International Convention is like no other Rotary gathering in its size, its variety, and the opportunity to meet other Rotarians who also give to the Rotary Foundation, recite the 4 Way Test, and believe it as much as you do. Twenty-five Rotarians from District 6080 have already registered to attend the International Convention. Now is the time for you to go to http://www.riconvention.org/en and register for the convention and reserve a hotel room.
