Time Travel in District 1130?

Time Travel in District 1130? The Rotary Club of London Centenary held a meeting on 10 August 2017 that may have been an opportunity to visit the future of Rotary Clubs around the world. London Centenary is an e-Club and meets regularly on the Internet using the free Zoom software. The atmosphere is comparatively informal and it is up to the individuals attending as to whether or not there is a meal! Their speaker on that evening was the President of Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland, Denis Spiller, who was putting his many years of experience in the IT industry to good use (outlined in green above). President Denis spoke about the many initiatives starting this Rotary Year including People of Action, The RIBI Conference in Torquay and the move from Polio Teddy Bears to Polio Old Bangers! He fielded many questions including the development of an e-Club for Rotaractors (aged 18-30), the size of Districts and the effect of size on their meetings, the need for a world directory of e-Clubs, and a major Public Image initiative planned for January 2018. With Club Members and visitors attending from (in alphabetical order) Canada, Canary Islands, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Nepal, Sweden and Zimbabwe, this was a truly international Rotary meeting and was thoroughly enjoyed by all those attending. As more and more new Rotarians find that time is at a premium, and that travelling time even on short journeys becomes more and more extended, this may have been a sneak preview into the future of Rotary around the world.... | Read more about Time Travel in District 1130? | Added 4 days ago

Helivan Handover - Hurray!

Helivan Handover - Hurray! The Rotary in London Helivan was handed over on 23 June 2017, as the Rotary Year was coming to a close. After a year of hard work fundraising, with Past District Governor Trevor Johnson acting as Project Manager, the London District Governor Helen Antoniou had the privilege of handing over the 'Helivan' purchased for London's Air Ambulance (LAA) with funds raised by the Rotary Clubs in London. In the photo are (left to right) Sara Jane Woods - LAA Head of Community Fundraising and Outreach, Mark Wingett - Actor and TV Star, Mark Davies - LAA Director of Development, District Governor Helen Antoniou, and Doctor Michael Kim wearing his LAA uniform. District Governor Helen said, "The total funds raised of 38,000 for this high profile project is a wonderful achievement, and demonstrates just how effective Rotary is in the 21st Century for our capital city. After this, we will continue to move forward to a bright future for the Rotary Clubs in London". The Helivan will be used to promote the work of London's Air Ambulance, and to encourage children and students to move towards a career in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM subjects). At the same time it will promote all the Rotary Clubs in London and their work in the community.  ... | Read more about Helivan Handover - Hurray! | Added 2 months ago

What is Rotary?


Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, the main objective of Rotary is service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
