Rotary Stars Shine Bright in Los Angeles

  • Hollywood’s glamour added to the excitement of the 99th Rotary International Convention, which began today in Los Angeles.
  • The annual event brings Rotarians, Rotaractors , and Rotary Foundation alumni from around the world. This convention marks the official launch of Rotary’s drive to raise $100 million to match a challenge grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, with all funds raised going toward polio eradication.
  • The president of the Gates Foundation’s Global Health Program, Tadataka Yamada, will address Monday’s plenary session. Another convention star is literacy. Looking to set a Guinness World Record, Rotary’s Wide World of Books project aims to collect 250,000 books to distribute to students in kindergarten through third grade in Los Angeles public schools.
  • But even as they share ideas, network, and get projects off the ground, Rotarians are enjoying the convention’s fun and fellowship.
  • Rotarian Don Craighead, of the Rotaract Committee, pins a fun meter button on Rotaractor McKenley Andrews.

  • This picture raises 2 questions – who in Oberon Club would have the highest
    rating on their Fun Meter – if you think it’s not the person beside you, do something about it! and, where did he get that shirt!!!!!
