Rotary Club of Wauconda happenings
 
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.
 
 
Your support of the Rotary Club of Wauconda help provide 426 coats to Wauconda Area children.  The picture says it all. A warm coat makes all the difference. Let's give them all the opportunities they deserve. Wauconda Rotary Cares.
 
Rock Around Rotary was a hit. Attendees from as far away as Chicago came to enjoy an evening of fun, games, dancing and all to help local causes. The appearance of the Pink Ladies made it a party. Next year we will do it again with a 1960s themed dance. Stay tuned...Same bat time, same bat channel.
 
 
 
This morning Visiting Angels, Sherry McGowan and Carrie Burke Svendson visited the Rotary to share information on Visiting Angels. We have all seen the commercials but meeting Sherry & Carrie you really understand the care, integrity and compassion that goes into providing home care for seniors. Their passion for what they do was very apparent. Visiting Angels is a great way to keep your loved ones cared for and at home. To find out more about Visiting Angels in the Barrington/Wauconda area contact: Visiting Angels/Barrington
 
There is...no place like home.

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.
