21 January 2013 — International Assembly Recap

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

We’re less than a week away from an exciting Sunday lunchtime meeting in The Fireplace Room, with special guest speakers from the Group Study Exchange team. Rotarian Jewel Price (from RC Glendale Sunrise) and four local young professionals spent four weeks in Japan on a vocational and cultural exchange. A team from Japan will be here in April and May.

Many of our Club members have already invited guests and prospective new Rotarians to visit with us and learn about one of the great international programs in the world of Rotary. Bring a friend!

  1. I read the responses to Ron Burton’s introduction of the new theme at the SD assembly. It has multiple interpretations and speaks to looking inward and outward.

  2. I love the photo gallery! I especially enjoyed the costumes from all the different countries. It;s good to see Rotarians know how to balance work and play.

  3. I enjoyed reading Ron Burton’s introduction of the theme. When we all come together as Rotarians we can do such great things.
