Rotary International Convention in Atlanta
June 14 – 17, 2017
One hundred years ago, at the 1917 Rotary Convention in Atlanta, Rotary President Arch Klumph proposed creating an endowment “for the purpose of doing good in the world.” From the first contribution of $26.50, the Foundation has grown significantly and has spent more than $3 billion on programs and projects. Let’s celebrate in the city where it all began. We’ll look back proudly over a century of “doing good in the world” — and look ahead to the challenges Rotary will tackle in the century to come. Visit The Rotary Foundation Centennial site to learn more about the Foundation’s first 100 years. There are 194 Rotarians from our District registered, but we are hoping for many more!! In total already 24,000 Rotarians made advantage of the early registration!
