Rotary International Convention 2013

September 1, 2013

Kristin Reed
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.
