Visits to two Rotary Clubs

On Thursday , October 11th and Friday, October 12th I visited two Rotary clubs here in Stockholm! On Thursday, I visited the Rotary Stockholm International Club and had the chance to meet the District Governor, Monia Sturén.

On Friday, I attended the Upplands Väsby Rotary Club, which is also my new host club. It was so nice to enjoy both of these opportunities socializing with international and Swedish Rotarians.

So far, my experiences with Rotary here in Stockholm reflect the trans-cultural nature of this great organization. All of my experiences with Rotary–both in Mercer Island and Stockholm, and with Rotaract in Stockholm–have included people from a variety of cultural and professional backgrounds coming together towards common visions for service and peace. I am very excited to meet more of the wonderful people involved in Rotary at the Stockholm District 2350 Conference this Saturday, October 27th.
