Light Up Rotary Chosen as 2014-2015 Theme

During the opening session of the five-day training meeting at the 2014 International Assembly in San Diego, California, RI President-elect Gary C.K. Huang chose "Light Up Rotary" as his theme for 2014-15.
Huang, was inspired by the teachings of Chinese philosopher Confucious who said: "It is better to light a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness."  "The Rotary way is the Confucius way. The Rotary way is to light a candle. I light one, you light one, 1.2 million Rotarians light one. Together, we light up the world," said Huang, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Taipei, Taiwan.  Huang is urging club members to "Light Up Rotary" by hosting a Rotary Day in their community, continuing their fight against polio, and increasing club membership.
