Rotary announced it will hold its annual gathering in Honolulu for the membership service organization’s 118th convention on June 5-9, 2027. Held in a different city around the world each year, Rotary conventions bring members from all continents and cultures together to learn from each other and various experts, and to share ideas for delivering long-term solutions to the world’s most persistent humanitarian issues. Approximately 20,000 Rotary members from 170 countries were expected to attend the event in Honolulu in 2020, which was estimated to bring $35-40 million into the local economy.
RI President Holger Knaack’s theme for 2020-21 is Rotary Opens Opportunities. Rotarians create opportunities that strengthen their leadership, help put service ideas into action and improve the lives of those in need. The world needs Rotary now more than ever. It is up to us to make sure that Rotary Opens Opportunities for generations to come.

Eco Tip of the Month
OUR CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE STARTS WITH YOU: ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN ACTION  
Energy efficiency is a great way to reduce energy use, save money, and help Hawaii reach our 100% clean energy goal.   
Efficiency tips:  

1.    Don’t keep your fridge too cold. Recommended temperature 37-40°F.  

2.    LED light bulbs are 90% more efficient than incandescent bulbs and last 25x longer.  

3.    Non-ENERGY STAR refrigerators can use almost 3x more energy than ENERGY STAR models.  

4.  Heating water uses the most electricity, making up 40% of the typical electric bill. Being smart about how you use hot water can mean big savings. For instance, heating water accounts for about 90% of the energy needed to run a washer. Wash on cold instead.  

5.    Hanging clothes outside to dry can save up to $300 on your energy bill.  

Thank you!
