Rotary Club of Wauconda happenings
 
 
 
 
 
The Wauconda Police Department did an outstanding job of bringing joy to some Wauconda area kids last Sunday. The smiles on their faces say it all. Great job!
 
Rotary Clubs from around the Chicagoland area came to Woodfield to Support the Salvation Army Bellringer event. It was a very cold night warmed by the generosity of the shoppers at Woodfield.
 
 Wauconda Rotary bellringers pictured above L-R: Bryan Anderson, Fred Holtgren & Bill Hogan.
Well, the big snow a week or so ago caught us by surprise. For those of you who asked - yes we're rolling out Adopt-A-Hydrant for the 2018/19 snow season!
 
When we get 2" or more of snow, get to work clearing a 3 ft around your nearby fire hydrant so it can be quickly accessed by the fire department. Take a picture of your handiwork and post it on the Adopt-A-Hydrant Facebook page.
 
The program is open to all residents within the Wauconda Fire District, though we encourage you to adopt a hydrant wherever you live, four winners will be drawn at the end of the season for area restaurant gift cards. 
 
  Ofc. Samuel Jimenez, Dr Tamara O'Neal, Dayna Less
 
 
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 Hurricanes, 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.

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.
