Rotary Day at the United Nations November 1, 2014
More that 1,200 Rotarians, Rotaractors, and Interactors attended the Rotary Day at the United Nations. District Governor David Del Monte (second from left) also attend the sold-out annual meeting. This annual meetings was started more than 25 years ago by our own New York Rotarian Sylvan Barnet. The first few years there were only 50 to 100 attendees, but has now grown to be a major Rotary event with attendees and RI Board members from around the world.
