“The clubs are where Rotary happens,” says Maloney, an attorney. He aims to support and strengthen clubs at the community level, preserve Rotary’s culture as a service-oriented membership organization, and test new regional approaches for growth.

The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be held July 22 through August 2, 2019, in the beautiful southern mountains of West Virginia, near Mt. Hope.

Scouts have the opportunity to make lifelong friendships and memories with young people from more than 160 national Scout organizations representing more than 200 nations and territories. Unlike any other youth event, a world Scout Jamboree is a gathering of cultures from around the world for 12 unforgettable days.

Interacters, Rotaractors and Rotarians interested in attending the July 31 event must purchase a World Scout Jamboree visitor pass. Please see https://2019wsj.org/attend/day-visitors/ for more information.
