Several Rotarians Made the Journey to Atlanta for the 2017 Rotary International Convention
Looks like a few members of The Woodlands Rotary had a great time in Atlanta for this year's Rotary International Convention.
 
 
2017-2018 President Judy Olsen was joined by the outgoing president Clay MCollor and Former Presidents Julie Martineau and Bill Friebel, plus a few others in Atlanta and they are happy to report some good news.  It was noted in Atlanta that there are only 5 cases of Polio left in the World.  $1.3 Billion was committed to continuing the eradication project from several different countries, Rotary and Mr. Microsoft, Bill Gates.
Judy enjoyed seeing Bill Gates in person, however, security wouldn't let her get too close.
 
At the convention, the main focus for Rotary International is to end Polio and stop human trafficking. They are also focusing on next generation by attracting younger members and to focus on engagement from all Rotarians, through enhanced technology.  Another goal for all Rotarians is the planting of one new tree per Rotarian.  Our club will do this on Arbor Day - 2018 in partnership with The Woodlands Development Company. 
For Fun, our gang enjoyed the meetings and shared some great meals.  They rode a "Social Bike" home from an event one evening.  Looks like everyone had a good meal prepared by our house chef, Julie Martineau and celebrated Doris and Wally Lockey's 50th Wedding Anniversary..... Congratulations.
