Former Mayor Momy Levy joined the Gibraltar Rotary Club in 1967 and is the longest serving member of the local club. In 1975 he was President of the Club.
Last week together with seven other Rotarians he attended the International Convention in Lisbon.
This is the first time ever that Momy has attended a Rotary International Convention. “Normally they are held in faraway places” said Momy.
There were 30,000 Rotarians of which 4,000 were from Japan and the rest from every part of the world.
Momy certainly made his presence felt as a Gibraltarian Rotarian and he was delighted to show off the Rock.
The only thing that struck Momy was when he was asked when did you join Rotary and he said in 1967 quite a few Rotarians said, “I was not born yet”.

Many contacts were made with other Rotarians from across the world. The team also took the opportunity to see Lisbon.
