Rotary Club of Wauconda happenings
 
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.
 
 
 
 
Sunday Partners for Progress held their Plop O' Gold fundraiser and their chili cook-off. Bill Peppler entered his chili under the Rotary banner. What an absolutely wonderful event for a great cause. Pictured above: Bill Peppler & Steve Kutschat, Rotarians
 
 
Last night the Rotary & Lions Clubs of Wauconda visited FMSC to help feed the need in Haiti. As usual it was a fun evening of like minded people giving their time to help. After every box we filled we all cheered "Wauconda Forever." Thank you caring.
 
 
Linda Reiter and Bill from the Salvation Army shared with us how the Salvation Army works to help community all over the Chicagoland area.

On  23 February 1905, Paul P. Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr’s office for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting. For more information about rotary click here.
Habitat for Humanity's Sara Davis stopped by the Rotary to talk about what Habitat is doing in McHenry and what volunteer opportunities are available. Habitat for Humanity works with families to become homeowners, not by giving them a home but assisting them in putting together a plan to acquire a home and have that family put in sweat equity to help build it. it builds dignity and communities. We also had two RYLA participants, Rhyanne Hernandez and AJ Cotsiomitis speak to our group about how their participation in the Rotary Youth Leadership Award retreat helped them hone their leadership skills. Rhyanne and AJ have a bright future ahead of them.

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.
