Get ready for our 5th annual World Polio Day event, co-hosted with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Rotary will stream live from Gates Foundation headquarters in Seattle, Washington to bring together more than 50,000 viewers around the world. Join us as global health experts and celebrities share our progress on the road to polio eradication.
 
Tonight at 7 PM there will be a candlelight vigil at the 9/11 Memorial in Wauconda located near the Police station on Main St just south of Rt 176. 
Another school year is beginning, and we will be sending our precious children to school to learn all they can. With the winter months fast approaching some children will miss school; not because they don't want to go to school, but because they don't have a proper winter coat to go to school in. This is where Operation Warm and you can make all the difference in the lives of many local children. The Rotary Club of Wauconda is participating with Lake Zurich Coats at the Chapel in Lake Zurich to distribute winter coats to children in need. Operation Warm, a not-for-profit organization, manufactures brand new coats that are distributed to children in need across the United States.
 
This year, we are participating again by raising funds to pay for coats and volunteering to distribute these coats in October. Please consider supporting the Rotary Club of Wauconda with a donation in any amount. $20 buy one new coat for a child. Through September two anonymous donors are matching your contributions up to a total of $5000 each. You can find our donation page for Operation Warm at Operation Warm Coat. Thank you in advance for your support.
 
 
 
Grace Lewandowski visited the Wauconda Rotary Club to share information about "The Giving Garden." The Giving Garden started as a Future Business Leaders of America project (FBLA) at Wauconda High School, the brain child of Emma & Grace Lewandowski. The project sells local area produce at the Wauconda Farmer's Market, the proceeds of which are donated to the Wauconda food pantry to help families in need. 
It is great to see our younger citizens take an active role in volunteering to help others in the community. If you would like to donate money or produce from your garden contact:
Grace Lewandowski at 218303@d118.org, or Bailey Burke at 220670@d118.org. 
On Wednesday June 28, 2017 The Rotary Club of Wauconda installed its new board for 2017/18. Outgoing President James Schneider, New President Brad Fink, President elect Bryan Anderson, Secretary Bill Hogan, Treasurer Joe Lewis, Directors, Bill Peppler and Mike DaValle.
This morning the Rotary Club of Wauconda hosted 3 explorers from our local fire district, who participated in Rotary's RYLA program, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award. Carson Bennett,  James Lauber and Anthony Melland shared their experiences at the retreat. They spoke of being separated from each other and learning how to socialize and work with new people from all over the world. They were task with getting out of their comfort zones in an effort to build their leadership skills. Each shared personal stories of why they enjoyed the program and how what they learned will shape their lives moving forward. James, Carson and Anthony are great examples of young people taking an active interest in their community and taking advantage of all they can, to be great future leaders.

Rotary is a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace. About 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas conduct projects to address today’s challenges — including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, and environmental concerns — while encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations.

As the world’s largest private provider of international scholarships, The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International helps more than 1,000 students annually to study abroad and serve as cultural ambassadors. Rotary also partners with seven prestigious universities around the world, providing opportunities to earn a master’s degree in peace and conflict resolution.

PolioPlus is Rotary’s flagship program. By the time polio is eradicated, Rotary club members will have contributed US$850 million and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than two billion children in 122 countries. Rotary is a spearheading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Founded in Chicago in 1905 as the world’s first volunteer service organization, Rotary quickly expanded around the globe. Today, club members meet weekly to plan service projects, discuss community and international issues, and enjoy fellowship. Clubs are nonpolitical and open to every race, culture, and creed.
