United Nations Day 2012

Greetings Rotarians and Friends:

Once again this year, we invite you to join us in New York City at the Rotary-United Nations Day on Saturday, November 3, 2012.  In addition, Canadian Rotarians can participate in a UN Tour Friday 9 am and a Special Canada Session, hosted by the Canadian UN Ambassador on Friday afternoon, November 2nd.

The Saturday meeting is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at UN Headquarters and will include presentations and panel discussions addressing Millennium Goals, and key humanitarian issues.  The event will feature presentations from senior UN staff and Rotary leaders, panel discussions on our mutual goal of achieving peace. Rotary Peace Fellows will also be included with a separate youth program for Rotaractors and high-school age students.  NOTE: UN tours are not available on Saturday, so those interested in this should do so on Friday morning.

Advance registration is necessary by October 19th for security reasons, however since we had to turn away folks last year, we suggest you do this asap.  Please register for the Saturday meeting on line at: http://undaynov2012.eventbrite.com   Cost is US$42.50, including box lunch.

For the Canada Session on Friday afternoon, please email PDG Doug Vincent  your complete name/address at: rotary@teamvincent.com   If interested in the Charter Bus trip to New York and UN (Saturday meeting registration included) see http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3028403035/eorg or email JulieGrabb@hotmail.com

Friday evening is our Friendship Dinner Cruise, November 2nd at 6:30 pm.  All Rotarians and friends from around the world are welcome to join us.  Enjoy a buffet dinner, music and fantastic view of NYC skyline at night.  Register on bottom of the first page at http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3028403035

Accommodation is expensive in NYC. There are more economical hotels across the river about 30 minute bus ride away.  Many stay at the Quality Inn or Marriott Hotel in, Lyndhurst, NJ and save over $100. per night. Or if flying, the Comfort Inn in Queens is a convenient-to-subway location.

Join us at the United Nations, meet our Canadian UN Ambassador and celebrate Rotary’s role in the development of the UN back in 1945.  It will be an exciting experience.  Rotarians, family members and friends are all welcome.
