Beginning June 9 through June 14, downtown Atlanta will be full of Rotarians from around the world.  

About 36,000 Rotarians (half from outside the USA) have registered for the Rotary International Convention, which celebrates 100 years of the Rotary Foundation which began at an RI Convention in Atlanta in 1917. During the subsequent years, the Rotary Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. 

Hopefully, all Rotarians visiting Atlanta will experience Southern hospitality.
