This week our club welcomed Nancy Milton a Rotarian from the Laguna Sunrise club to discuss the 2012/2013 Rotary Theme "Peace Through Service".

 

Nancy began by showing us a video of current Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka discussing his theme at International Assembly. 

She then reminded us of all the ways Rotary lives by that theme, Peace Scholars, Rotary Youth Exchange and other programs. This year Rotary International has also held Global Peace Forums. The first one was Peace Without Borders held in Berlin, Germany, the second one was The Green Path to Peace held in Honolulu, Hawaii, and the final will be Peace Begins With You and will be held May 17, 18 in Hiroshima, Japan.

Nancy also told about the Peace Forum that their club sponsored in their community of Elk Grove.
