Rotary International President's November 2019 Newsletter

Here is Mark Maloney's November 2019 Newsletter.  It is all about Rotary and The United Nations (75 years old this June 2020) and Rotary Day at the UN on November 9, 2019. Rotary played such a critical leadership role in the San Francisco Conference that formed the United Nations in 1945. Throughout World War II, Rotary published materials about the importance of forming such an organization to preserve world peace. President Mark says, "The focus on the UN in the year ahead is not only about the past; it also lights a path to our future. Alone, we cannot provide clean water for all, we cannot eliminate hunger, we cannot eradicate polio. But together with partners like the United Nations, of course we can". ........
