Meeting Minutes - May 2nd, 2018


Guest Speakers:

Helen Reisler, member of the New York Club, past President (2001-02) and past District Governor (2005-06) spoke about the relationship between Rotary and the United Nations. The relationship was forged in 1945 when Rotary helped to formulate the UN Charter. Over the years, the relationship between Rotary and the UN has become stronger through Polio Plus and UNICEF. She showed a video outlining this bond. For more information, log onto wwwrotary.org/en/in-day

Thank you Helen and Tom for your presentations and keep up the good work with the UN!
