A Rotary Moment, by John Snively.

In 1942, delegates to a conference in London, most of whom were Rotarian, founded the important UNESCO, an important organization later placed under the umbrella of the UN. Just after the war, in San Francisco, 50 Rotarians were among the delegates to the meeting that founded the United Nations itself.

This being a casual meeting, there was no guest speaker and we adjourned at 1:01 pm, with many staying longer to chat with fellow members
