This Week's LIMERICK!!!

 
There once was a man from Nantucket,
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
His daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man,
And as for the bucket—Nantucket.
 
(Note: Are you a Limerick Lover?
Send me one to share with the club!)

The Next R.I. Convention
  
More than 20,000 participants from around the world will gather in Houston, Texas, for the 113th annual international convention, June 4-8, 2022.  This will be the third time this Texas city has hosted the convention which will be at the George R. Brown Convention Center.  The Convention chair, Rhonda Kennedy, representing 62 Houston-area clubs with 2, 400 members, said, “as a proud member of the Rotary Club of Sweeny, I am excited not only to welcome our fellow members from around the world to our beloved city,, but also to show how Houston area clubs are taking action to make the world a better lace at home and abroad."
 
 
On 15 August 1910, Paul Harris convened the first Rotary convention. At the time, there were 16 clubs in the United States. They shared the Rotary name and had similar objectives, but no central office or constitution.
