Consider Attending the International Convention June 1 - 5, 2019 in Hamburg, Germany.  One early June, more than 30 years ago, I had a business trip scheduled to Las Vegas. I had been a Rotarian for about six years, and I thought of myself as an active member: I attended every meeting, I’d served as club secretary, I knew everyone in my club. But for me, Rotary was very much a community organization. It connected me to Nassau and perhaps even to the Bahamas — but no farther.   Click Read More for full story
   
District 7475 is pleased to announce that it will sponsor two Global Scholars.  Maya Wahrman sponsored by the Princeton Corridor Club (pictured left) Maya will pursue MS in Refugee and Forced Migration at the University of Oxford to equip herself with the theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and network of allies to further her career in peace and conflict resolution as it relates to refugees. Janine Furtado sponsored by the Rockaway Club (pictured right) will pursue a MA in international development at the Graduate Institute (also known as IHEID) in Geneva. She will focus her studies on the socioeconomic impacts of food, agriculture, and the environment in developing regions- all of which fit within Rotary’s economic and community development focus.
 
The short term youth exchange program is a partnership between District 7475 serving northern and central New Jersey and District 2670 Shikoku, Japan.  Each year our district sends 30 students and leaders to Japan the first three weeks of July and District 2670 sends 30 students and leaders to us the first three weeks of August.  The students and leaders enjoy a variety of activities during their visit.  The program ties into Rotay's goal of building good will and friendship.  This is the 42nd year the program has occurred.  Pictured above are the Japanese students, leaders visiting the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.  For additional information on this program or to be considered as a leader/chaperone, contact Jim Allison of he Madison Club at jra188@aol.com.  Full program details are on the District website at www.njrotary.org
