Message from Rotary District 5830 International Convention Chair, PDG John Henson
I am sure that all of you have heard by now that the 2021 Taipei Convention has been changed to a Virtual Convention due to the ongoing challenge with the Covid-19 situation.

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION. “RI will refund Convention Registrations and Hotel Deposits will be returned, so relax and wait for the news.”
The 2022 convention will be held---HOUSTON, TEXAS!
Please be assured that Rotary International is taking every precaution to help maintain the safety and health of all of us Rotarians. Unfortunately this is the second convention that has been cancelled due to the virus. BUT, this can be a very positive situation for all of us in 5830. Now, you / we / everyone can attend an International Convention, even if it is a virtual experience. So, I highly encourage you to go to the Rotary International website and see how easy it will be for you and all your club members to join in the excitement of an International Convention; I guarantee you will not be disappointed. It certainly won’t be the same as being there in person but is the next best thing.
Speaking of being there in person, guess where the 2022 convention will be held---HOUSTON, TEXAS!!!! Yes, just down the road from us. AND hopefully by the time the Houston Convention rolls around next June, all of us will have been vaccinated and able to meet face-to-face. If you have never attended an International Convention in person, Houston will be a great first time experience. I know that DGE Mike is already thinking about chartering several buses so we all can go to the convention together. That will be lots of fun and fellowship. So, put June 12-16 on your calendar, and go to the Houston Convention. It should be a fantastic event!
