Description

RadioRotary welcomes Rotary International (RI) President Holger Knaack (via Zoom), a member since 1992 of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany. He is proud to be the first RI president from Germany. President Knaack has held many posts in Rotary from Club President and District Governor to Director and Treasurer of Rotary International. His special interests have been the youth-exchange program and Rotaract, the Rotary adjunct for young adults between the age of 18 and 30. He and his wife have not just supported youth-exchange; they have hosted some 40 students themselves. He says “Rotary is the greatest organization in the world” because of its work in fighting disease, promoting peace, encouraging literacy, and aiding disaster recovery with ShelterBox. Because of the COVID-19 situation, he is the first RI president who cannot travel to Rotary Clubs all over the world, but he visits thousands of Rotarians via Zoom every day.
