The Centenary of the Rotary Foundation

help us celebrate 100 years of the Rotary Foundation

return to the Foundation homepage

Across the world we are celebrating 100 years of the Rotary Foundation - from the Rotary Convention in Seoul in June 2016 through to the Rotary Convention in Atlanta in June 2017. We are also celebrating 70 years of the Rotary Scholarship Programme (previously the Ambassadorial Scholarship Programme). In District 1090 we hope to share in the successes of our clubs in initiating and completing grant-funded projects, we hope to hear of the successes of the Rotary and Ambassadorial scholars that our clubs have hosted over the years, and we hope to ensure that in the Spring of 2017 everyone who lives and works in the Thames Valley sees the purple crocuses that we will be planting in the Autumn and that they will all know how close Rotary and its partners are to eradicating polio from the world, for good.
