We had a great Rotary United Nations Day last Saturday, October 4th. The leadership of Rotary International came including Rotary International President Jonathan Majiyagbe, RI President Elect Glenn Estess and RI Past Presidents Frank Devlyn and Rick King together with a majority of Rotary Internationalís Board of Directors.

RI President Jonathan was very kind to give me a copy of his manuscript, so you can read the complete speech on our website at www.nyrotary.org/united_nations/un_day_2004.html.†
