The wait is over. The 2014 International Convention in Sydney is officially open for business. As the city rested, Rotarians buzzed about the Sydney streets, packing the trains on their way to the Olympic Park. The excitement was palpable, and for good reason; there’s plenty on the agenda. Here are a few highlights:
– The NSW Police Band plays at the House of Friendship from 11 a.m. to noon.
– The first sitting of the opening plenary runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. The premier of New South Wales will address the audience, as will the Prime Minister of Australia. If you can’t make the first seating, the second starts at 4 p.m.
– An Aussie BBQ will run from noon to 4:30. They’re serving Aussie Snags.
– For you night owls, a cowboy dinner cruise is sailing from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
