Every year Rotarians meet to plan for the year ahead.
In District 1070 (the east Midlands of England) that day-long assembly is held at Loughborough University early in May. Nearly 500 members attend.
And every year members of the Rotary Club of Leicester Novus attend to learn about possible projects to which they can commit.
For some, it is the first time they hear the theme of the incoming President of Rotary International. The theme for the year 2017-2018 was Rotary: Making A Difference. For the year 2018-2019 (which starts on July 1) the theme chosen by Rtn Barry Rassin, from The Bahamas, is Be The Inspiration.
Our photo shows some of the Leicester Novus team at the District Assembly ready to be inspired.
