Rotaractors mark 50 years of Rotaract at their triennial meeting

Last September, Rotaractors from around the world gathered in Taipei, Taiwan, for their triennial Interota convention. This year’s meeting was a special celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Rotaract, and attendees marked the occasion with song, dance, parties, and projects. They also heard inspiring talks and participated in useful workshops that gave them new ideas to take home to their clubs.
