Philippines Rotary laid out the red carpet for Rotary International President Elect (RIPE) Gordon McInally who arrived on August 14 for a week-long stay in the country.
McInally who will serve as President of Rotary International next year will be gracing several events and meet with Rotary leaders from all over the country, including his 10 District Governors.
McInally has expressed his wish to have an audience with Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. to talk about the latter’s platform of unity and how Rotary clubs in the country can further the agenda of nation building.
Among the highlights of McInally ’s stay until Aug. 20 are the Rotary Service Day at Camp Aguinaldo, a tour of a Rotary Community Service Project in northern Luzon, and gracing the Induction of the Philippine College of Rotary Governors at Conrad Hotel.
He will also attend the meeting of the Rotary Club of Manila, the first club chartered in the Philippines as well as do the ceremonial tee-off of the McInally Golf Tournament at the Wack-Wack Golf and Country Club.
A historical video shoot of McInally with his 10 District Governors at the Luneta Park will be part of his itinerary as well.
Philippine Rotary has more than 20,000 member Rotarians all over the country.
This visit is an excellent opportunity to showcase to McInally what Rotary has been doing in the communities they serve. McInally will also tour the facilities ideal for hosting the Rotary International Convention which Philippine Rotary is bidding for on 2028.*
