The District 7190 contingent that attended Rotary Day at the United Nations on Saturday ran into news main events at both ends of the trip.
Here’s what District Governor John Mucha had to say about it:
“We had around 50 youth (Exchange students and siblings, RYLA students, Interact students) and chaperones, and about 20 Rotary adults and guests attend.
“The students saw our democracy in action with political demonstrations blocking several streets. [And] We all were affected by the lockdown at Crossgates Mall, where we left our cars at 5 a.m. and had to have a police escort to return there at 11 p.m. Quite a day!”
