Your favorite stories from 2019

By Rotary Service and Engagement Staff

As we approach the end of 2019, we’re taking a look back. Here are this year’s top five posts (based on number of views) from Rotary Service in Action:

  1. In May, Isabel Rodriguez, the Rotary Friendship Exchange Chair for District 4130, told of her experience hosting Rotary members from Ontario, Canada, on exchange in Mexico.
  2. In July, we listed activities that Rotary clubs can undertake to strengthen the ways that Rotary Connects the World, the theme that RI President Mark Daniel Maloney chose for 2019-20. The inspirational ideas aim to build connections that allow members to unite and take meaningful action through Rotary service.
  3. In June, James Morrison, a member of the Rotary Fellowship Cycling to Serve, talked about the health and mental benefits of cycling and how it helped fellowship member Edwin Velarde control his diabetes.
  4. In June, Felix Heintz, founder and chair of the Rotarian Metalhead Fellowship, and Manouchehr Shamsrizi, director of strategic partnerships and communication for the fellowship, explained how the heavy metal music lovers’ group was formed and how it aims to serve Rotary’s goals through music.
  5. Also in June, Angie Mesistrano, Area 2 commodore of the International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians, provided insight on how the group is working with Rotaract and Interact clubs to raise awareness of plastic pollution and the need to protect our oceans.
