Light Up Rotary

T1415ENRotary International President Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15. Huang is urging club members to Light Up Rotary by hosting a Rotary Day in their community, continuing our fight against polio, and increasing club membership. “Light Up Rotary is more than our theme. It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, and every country we serve.”
