Rotary International Convention 2013
September 1, 2013
Each year Rotary hosts an
international convention of
Rotarians from clubs around the
world together. This year it was
held in Lisbon Portugal. Kristin
Reed was lucky enough to be able
to attend. She will give us a
detailed report on November 15.
Meanwhile, she has provided some
pictures of the event for us.
The attendance was anticipated to
be 25,000 Rotarians coming
together to be inspired and
informed through plenary sessions
and smaller meetings. This was the
largest convention ever held in
Portugal. There was entertainment
as well as work sessions.
Here is the opening session from
two different perspectives. One
can get an idea of how large the
crowd was from them.
Above is where the plenary
sessions were held. Be sure to hear
Kristin provide the details on
November 15. Next year's
convention is in Sydney, Australia.
