Rotary International’s Annual Theme
Rotary International’s Annual ThemeThe President of Rotary International, Mark D. Maloney, has chosen the theme of his presidential year 2019-2020. It is ROTARY CONNECTS THE WORLD – ROTARY YHDISTÄÄ MAAILMAN – ROTARY FÖRENAR VÄRLDEN
Rotary unites people, families, and communities and offers a way for professionals to network with each other and build strong and lasting friendships.
Rotary’s service activities unite us with people who share the same values as ours and want to work for a better world. Rotary connects us to people who need our help and allow us to change lives around the world.
Rotary can and it must be an experience that complements our families rather than competing with our families. When our Rotary Clubs are places who welcome people, where service activities and families go hand in hand, we give family-oriented young professionals the
opportunity to get inspired by Rotary’s service activities and to plan positive civic activities.
In 2019-2020, our goal is to strengthen the ways in which Rotary connects the world by establishing links that enable talented, understanding, and unselfish people to come together and make meaningful things with the service of Rotary.

The annual theme of RC Mänttä
Our club focuses on activating members for meetings, and we are constantly looking for new ideas about places to visit and events that activate members to participate. Our long-term strategic goal is young Rotarians. We want to show and influence our community.
