This morning Deb Kinne, Jen and Rob Fosness and Malachi (comfort dog) visited with the Wauconda Rotary to talk about how the Lutheran Ministries Comfort Dog program helps to comfort people and first responders at disasters across the country. 
 
They have helped in Huricanes, Katrina and Sandy as well as Sandy Hook. The wonderful volunteer work that these individuals and dogs do is invaluable to the people they have served. If you would like to learn more about their program click the Lutheran Church Charities logo below to see their Facebook page.

The Rotary Club of Wauconda held its 8th annual Road Rally last Saturday, October 13th. It was a spectacular day! we had 9 cars and participants of all ages. The teams stopped at 8 businesses around the Wauconda area and at each stop performed a time task. They competed to get the lowest overall team time. We ended at the American Legion Hall where we had a meat raffle with terrific steaks, great for fall grilling. We would like to thank all the families and volunteers that made for a very memorable road Rally. See you next year! Bring a friend. The Rotary Club of Wauconda meets every Wednesday 7-8 AM at Wauconda Café, all are welcome. People of Action

Police Chief Weremes visited the Rotary today to share with us what the police department is doing in the area of community outreach. We learned that the Chief and all of the officers are committed to working with the community and creating an environment where there is mutual respect between the police and the community. The Rotary appreciates and thanks the Chief and the department for their service and dedication to keeping our village safe. Connect with the Wauconda police department on Facebook.

The Rotary Club of Wauconda enjoyed a terrific game of baseball last Saturday. We were especially delighted to see a hometown Wauconda kid on the mound, Rich Mascheri. He pitched 6 innings for the win against the St. Paul Saints, the final score 12-4! We also enjoyed a great fireworks show after the game.

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.
