Park City to host Utah Rotary District Conference
Event will showcase service efforts of town’s Rotarians
May 12, 2017
Utah's Rotarians are coming to Park City.
The city is set to hold the annual Utah Rotary District Conference Thursday through Saturday, a three-day event hosted by the Park City and Sunrise Rotary clubs that could bring in as many 300 Rotarians from around the state. John Hanrahan, a member of the Park City Rotary Club and conference chair for the Utah Rotary District, said it's the first time in more than two decades the city has been chosen for the event.
He said local Rotarians are excited to show off what makes Park City special to their counterparts from the rest of Utah.
"Our two Rotary clubs have about 180 members, which is about 10 percent of the entire state," he said. "So we have a really big presence here, and I think the district realized that it's time to let Park City host this and let the rest of the district know what we do here and why we're so successful."
The conference will include a number of events, including a series of speaker discussions and a 5K race that will benefit the effort to end polio. It will also serve as a celebration of the service efforts of Rotarians throughout Utah in the hope that it will spur them to take even more action.
Additionally, while only Rotarians are allowed to register for the conference, they are encouraged to bring guests interested in joining a club. Given that, Hanrahan is optimistic the event will lead to getting even more Parkites involved in Rotary.
