WASHINGTON ROTARY REACHES TO CHINA

Read the New Annual Report! Click!

 
The Rotary Club of Washington has approved an international project to support the China Little Flower Orphanage in Northern China in the Beijing Region.
 
The Club became aware of the needs through the efforts of Rotarian John Tecklenburg. Prior to moving to the Washington Area, John and his family spent five years in China as a part of John’s work for the Alcoa Corporation in China.
 
Seeing the need for humanitarian efforts with the people of China, John became aware of the orphanage and volunteered. Upon his return home the effort and support for the orphanage continued with trips back to China to work with the staff and children located there. China Little Flower registered in Nebraska in 1998 as a non-profit organization to provide much needed care for abandoned and orphaned children in China. Its work today is in the Beijing Region where the need for services is great.

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
