positively, when you register please let me know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
This request is not a ‘big brother’ one but an
attempt to know who from our district is attending with the possibility for DG
(as he will be then) Roddy and Charlotte to consider arranging a get together
either in the parade of flags, over breakfast or just over a coffee.
A RI Convention
is a little like our Conferences but much, much, much larger as one would
expect from a worldwide gathering of the Rotary family. The celebration of
fellowship with social and entertainment features is appropriate to the vast
scale of such activities.
chosen not only because it is a 21st century transportation hub but
because in 1917 RI President Arch Klump told delegates to the Atlanta
Convention that ‘it seems eminently
proper that we should accept endowments for the purpose of doing good in the
world’ and hence the seeds of our charity, The Rotary Foundation, were sown
and in 2017 the Convention returns to Atlanta to celebrate 100 years of ‘doing
good in the world’.
