On April 18, 2017, Rotarian Kelly McDonald spoke to the Magnolia Rotary Club about the upcoming International Rotary Conference to be held in Atlanta Georgia from June 10, 2017 through June 14, 2017. Pictured above is Rotarian Kelly McDonald.
Kelly McDonald told the group that the RI Convention is coming up and this year it will be in Atlanta Georgia which makes it fairly close to us. She expects the cost to be around $500 if anyone is planning on attending. To date at least 4 of the Magnolia Rotary Club members are planning to attend. She pointed out that there is still time to register online at the District 5910 website. Also, for anyone interested in going, talk to her about hotel reservations.
Kelly told everyone that she had attended last year's RI Convention in Seoul, South Korea with Real and Barbara Provencher, Kandice Cabets, and Frank and Marcia Parker. She explained that it was a life changing experience with awesome performances and fantastic speakers including the Deputy Secretary of the United Nations, Bill Gates, and Coretta Scott King. Kelly stated it is an experience not to be missed and if possible, as many of our members should try to attend.
Kelly then showed a movie clip that Real Provencher made and narrated during the RI Convention in Seoul, South Korea. The movie showed many of the places our members went to as well as highlights from the convention itself.
