ROTARY -Club Meeting tomorrow – Ukraine

Fellow Club Members,
This week we will hear fellow Rotarian from Grants Pass, Steve Sweringen, tell us about their former exchange student and what local Rotarians  are doing to help. 

RI reminds us: 

  • As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. 
  • We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease-fire, withdrawal of Russian troops, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue. 
  • In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peacebuilding projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence.

    There are 62 clubs and 1,100 Rotarians in Ukraine and 
                     80 clubs and 1,067 Rotarians in Russia.   

    See you tomorrow, 

Here is a link about RI’s CEO John Hewko and his relationship with Ukraine.
