Champions of Peace at United Nations

District 1020 Peace Officer Jean Best was one of only six Rotarians and Rotary Peace Fellows around the world to be honoured at this year's Rotary Day at the United Nations in Geneva.

Not only that, but one of the two Peace Fellows honoured, Kiran Sirah, was a member of our GSE team which went to Colombia in 2009. Subsequently he was suggested as a Peace Scholar and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Tranent.

For one District to be associated with two Champions of Peace in a single year is probably unique and our congratulations go to Jean and Kiran on this well-deserved recognition.

You can see both of them at the opening session on UN Web TV below (from 51 minutes), introduced by John Hewko, RI General Secretary.

D1020 GSE team make headlines in Ohio

The D1020 GSE team visiting Ohio, were featured in local paper The Chronicle during ther stop in Elyria, Ohio. Led by PDG Andy Ireland and hosted by local Rotarians the team of young professionals are visiting their counterparts in the States to learn how their own professions, and people's lives, differ from those at home.

Elyria Rotarian George Costaras said the visit encourages peace and cultural exchange.

“To me this is internationalism. A big concept in Rotary is making friendship and peace one person at a time. Its big part of what Rotary is about,” he said. “This is our opportunity for our club, a small club, that doesn’t always know what to get involved in. As you can see from today, it just re-energizes us.”
