(Think GSE - Groups Study Exchange)
They will be spending the day in Rockport and Fulton. We are planning several activities at this time. Initial thoughts include a meal at a local restaurant, visits to the Texas Maritime Museum and Rockport-Fulton Visitor Center, shopping time on Austin Street, and a dinner hosted by the Rockport Rotary Club at the Rockport Beach Park. A signature event that will highlight the primary purpose is the planting of a Peace Pole at the Aransas Pathways Pavilion area. (Click the Read more for information on Peace Poles.)
The Rotary District represented by the Russian delegation made donations to the cause of humanitarian needs in response to Hurricane Harvey impact in Rockport and Fulton. We anticipate sharing some of our rebuilding efforts.
There will be eight visiting Russians, additional persons (our leaders, translators, and other participants) and local Rotarians. The total group size will vary from 12 to 40 persons.
Rockport Rotarians - I need assistance with the planning and carrying out. Please let me know in what area and when. Assistance is needed before and on the day of October 8th.

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
