Joint Club Meeting Of The First Five Rotary Clubs, October 7, 2020

We had a very special  meeting today on Zoom with the world’s 5 oldest Rotary clubs - Chicago, San Francisco, Oakland, Seattle, and Los Angeles (known as the First Five Clubs). Our President Ces Butner, along with the other four Club Presidents,  conducted the 5312th club meeting with more than 200 participants!

The five Club presidents talked about the serious issue of homelessness and announced a collaborative project to help unhoused residents in their cities.

President Ces introduced our guest speaker Jennifer Jones, who was recently selected to serve as 2022-2023 Rotary International President. She will be the first female President in Rotary International's 115-year history.
