(St.Joseph, MO) St.Joseph Rotary clubs hosted a very special guest Wednesday morning. For the first time,Rotary International President Ian Riseley made a stop at the Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), to promote his mission to help the environment.

For the last year Riseley has been touring Rotary Clubs around the world to promote his mission for each Rotary member to plant a tree. That mission has resulted in over 1.2million trees being planted in communities around the world.

“The impicative of the tree planting was to try and show that Rotarians care about the environment. It’s the only planet we have, it’s the planet on which we all depend,” Riseley said.

The St.Joseph Rotary Clubs and Savannah Rotary Club commemorated Riseley’s visit with a ceremonial planting of a tree at the CVB.

Mayor Bill McMurray presented Riseley with a key to the city and proclaimed the day as Area Rotary Club Recognition Day.
