The free holiday showing of Arthur Christmas at Classic Cinemas was such a hit, they had to open a second screen. Over 250 moviegoers came out, watched a movie, played some games and took a photo with Santa! The kids had a great time. Thanks to all of our volunteers and the theater for helping make this happen!
We're happy to announce a new Little Free Library that was installed today at Aunt Martha's Carpentersville Community Health Center at Rt 68 and Wakefield Dr. It's now fully stocked with lots of great books—many Spanish titles. 
The 2017 Annual Pub Crawl is here! Starting at Bikini Bottom and ending at Bandito Barneys with plenty of places in between. Get your crew together and start training now.

Congratulations to one of this years Jim Krenz Memorial Scholarship, Kelly Swanson from Dundee Crown HS. A well deserved recipient who was on National Honor Society, was a AP & IL State Scholar, had perfect attendance in school, was involved in Student Council, Orchestra, Swimming, Rotary Interact, and volunteered in countless community service projects !
Our month long Toiletries Drive for the Carpentersville FISH Food Pantry is back for the 5th consecutive year!
Throughout the entire month of February 2017 we will be collecting any toiletry items and donating them to our local food pantry. More information on how you can help coming soon!
On a unseasonably warm day in November we once again distributed 300 coats to local children in need just in time for the cold weather which is just around the corner!
THANK YOU to all those people who support us through out the year at our various events who have given us this opportunity to give back for the last 8 years.
THANK YOU the the various clubs of the Boys & Girls Club of Dundee Township and the Social worker staff at District 300 for all their help with the children and distribution.
THANK YOU to all club members who volunteered and the staff at Polynt Composites USA for their time and contributions as well.
The fight against Poilo has been one of Rotary International's biggest fight and through all the years of hard work they are truly "This Close" to defeating the disease!
As part of the Rotary International community we constantly hear about the need to support the effort to eradicate Polio but unless we do the actual research we lack a basic knowledge about the actual disease. Thanks to a recent visit from Rotary District 6440 Polio chair Carol Wells we now have a better knowledge of the disease, the fight and the ways to help! A little knowledge can go a long way and clarify our understanding and encourage more of a willingness to contribute to the cause! All thanks to Carol and her informative presentation.
Polio eradication is ongoing fight and anyone willing to learn more can visit: We want thank Carol for the time she took out to visit our club and inform us on the latest information with the End Poilo Now effort.
On Monday September 12, 2016 we had our official Ribbon Cutting ceremony for our very own Little Free Library here in Carpentersville. The few that gathered brought books to donate, and enjoyed a brief presentation as we made the Grand Opening official. Thanks to everyone who made it a success and a possibility!
Remember you can find our Little Free Library located at the south entrance of the village hall or use coordinates Lat: 42.1178 Long: -88.2646 on your GPS to take you right to it!
During our service trip down in El Vaquero, SLP Mexico in 2014 we made a commitment to that community to somehow bring them a sustainable water source which they lack and desperately need. We are happy to announce that current plans are in progress to help make this commitment a reality and has been deemed our "Agua Es Vida" (Water is Life) Rain Harvesting Project. Below is a link to a great video that describes the project in detail done by another Rotary club and is the base for our upcoming project later this year.
Despite the lack of summer weather and with a definite chill in the air we made the most of our situation and had a great 2016 kickoff to Summer event anyway! Thanks to the facilities at the Carpentersville Middle School we were able to re-locate at the last minute and have the event indoors. After some mass last minute notifications everyone was updated and were able to make there way out for an entertaining evening.

With Easter being so early this year, preparation for our 5th annual Easter Dinner Basket Distribution was fast and furious, but we were still able to have another successful distribution event. Between the collecting, the shopping, the assembling, and the organizing everything was done in a short amount of time! In the end we were able to distribute of 30 Easter Dinner Baskets to local families in need. 
We want to send a special Thank You to the children of the Lakewood Boy's & Girls Club who spent and evening crafting very Easter-esk goodie bags for each of our baskets. Thank you to each of our club members who made a contribution and those who did all the shopping and organizing. Last but not least we want to thank all those who support us at our various events whose contributions make stuff like this possible!! Check out all the pictures in our 2016 Easter Dinner Album.
Over the past year Alvaro and his family in El Vaquero SLP, Mexico have really made the Super Adobe house we built for them their own. With recent torrential rains that plagued the area they were able to stay dry and protected from the elements. More and more each day the realize the benefits and become more appreciative of what we have been able to provide. Check out all the latest photos in th photo Album!

ImageWhen anyone ever inquires about Rotary the usual first question is "What is Rotary?". After that is explained the second question usually is "Does it cost anything to be a member?" The answers is YES! Every Rotary Club has dues and each club is different...

Carpentersville Rotary is always open to welcoming new speakers to our weekly meetings. Anyone with interest please let us know so we can schedule a time and date...
