The Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club was represented at the United Nations on Nov. 2 by Secretary Clover Dewar-March.
The Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club — in the person of Secretary Clover Dewar-March — participated in Rotary UN Day at the world organization’s Manhattan headquarters on Saturday, Nov. 2.
Rtn. Clover joined some 1,300 Rotarians in the annual event that is designed “to inspire and educate all participants as well as provide insight into the relationship between Rotary and the United Nations,” according to its sponsor.
Here’s how the sponsor described the international service organization’s long connection to the international peace organization:
“Rotary’s relationship with the United Nations dates back to 1945 when some 49 Rotary members acted as delegates, advisors and consultants at the United Nations Charter Conference. Today, Rotary holds the highest consultative status possible with the United Nations as a non-governmental organization.”
