Please join us on Saturday, October 5, 2019, from 12PM - 4PM for great family fun. The Road Rally is like the Amazing Race. you are given an envelope with a clue and using the clue you have to navigate to a particular location in and around Wauconda and perform a timed task. The team with the lowest overall time will be the winner.
 
A wonderful day at the ballpark. Wauconda, Lake Zurich & Long Grove Rotary members enjoyed a multi-club social event to see the Chicago Dogs baseball team Saturday, July 27, 2019. We look forward to the clubs supporting, helping and working together in the future.
 
Wednesday the Rotary had the pleasure of hosting two "Peanut" Scholarship winners, Kayla Serio and Samantha Cunningham. Both young women will be attending college in the fall, our club wishes them both the very best in reaching their acedemic goals. The Cunningham and Serio families should be very proud of their accomplishments.
 
We also had the pleasure of hosting Cathy and Chet Stanley who created the "Peanut" scholarship in honor of their daughter Theresa "Peanut" Stanley who was killed by a drunk driver in March of 2001. They have dedicated their lives to getting the word out on the importance of understanding the dangers of driving under the influence and or driving impaired. Their work with AAIM (Alliance Agains Intoxicated Motorists) allow them to advocate for victims and their families and offer support to families when they need it most. Cathy and Chet Stanley are two great people doing all they can to make a positive difference in our community. Thank you. If you would like to learn more about AAIM click the link below:
 
 
Thursday bestselling author Andra Watkins visited the Rotary at the Wauconda Area library. She talked about her book Not without my Father, we discussed the importance of making memories with those people most important in your life. Andra is a tremendous storyteller. She brought her triumphs and tribulations to life for all of us. The passion she has for writing is very evident. If you would like to learn more about Andra or want to purchase one of her books go to: www.andrawatkins.com.

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.
