Chuck Oldanie, a Rotarian from Seminole Lakes, Florida with Michigan ties, reported on the recent International Convention in Houston.
At the convention there was much discussion about Ukraine.  During John Hewko's General Secretary's report a Ukrainian flag was passed around, reulting in a five-minute standing ovation.  Rotary has raised $53M for Ukraine and has been involved with the Ukrainian struggle in many ways, including Shelter Box.
The war against polio continues, with cases limited to four in Afghanistan, four in Pakistan and one in Malawi.  RI President Shekhar Mehta stressed the value of yoga, saying that yoga was India's gift to everyone.
Rotaract had a big impact on the convention and in the future will have a big impact on Rotary membership numbers.
