Virtual tour of One Rotary Center shines

As one of the two Rotary clubs normally conducting club meetings at One Rotary Center in Evanston, Illinois, USA, members of the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse were touched by General Secretary John Hewko’s inspirational tour of Rotary World Headquarters. Seeing Room 711, the location of the first Rotary meeting, was a reminder that club members later this year will once again walk by it on our way to club meetings, just as we did prior to the pandemic.

The tour of the 17th and 18th floors of Rotary’s World Headquarters showed us that the nerve center of Rotary International is ready to welcome Rotarians from around the world. The opportunity to see One Rotary Center virtually is a wonderful way to learn the value of an in-person tour (once conditions again allow it) for every Rotarian when they are in the Chicago area.

I recommend that every club show the video at their club meetings. It’s a great way to remind members about the fantastic work that we do around the world. Members of both the Evanston Lighthouse club and the Rotary Club of Evanston are excited about returning to in person meetings at the right time and welcoming our Rotary friends from around the world.
