Wright briefs Rotarians on general principles of Islam

Rotary Club of Crowley President Pat Miers, right, thanks Rotarian Lee Wright, left, for his informative program Tuesday.

When Rotarian Lee Wright was thrown the task of organizing the club’s program a couple of weeks ago, it put him in a tight spot.
His original speaker was set to visit the club in November, but Wright was rescheduled and his speaker could not. So, it fell to Wright to pull something out of his “bag of tricks,” which, if anything, includes plenty of informative military briefings sure to educate the local membership of the global organization.
Wright decided to present an informative program on what has become the world’s fastest growing religion: Islam. Current statistics show the religion is expected to rival Christianity by 2050.
