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.

Another great Year! Thanks to everyone that came out and had a entertaining morning with us! BIG THANK YOU to the Kohl's Cares team from the West Dundee store who spent the morning with us and made it that much more exciting! Check out all the great photos in our 2016 FREE Halloween Movie Photo Album.
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: http://www.endpolio.org/. 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.
We had a great night this past Saturday Evening at our Rotary Pub Crawl 7.0 and want to extend our gratitude to everyone that came out and supported us and made it another successful evening! Thank You All!
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!
Another 5K in the books! Each year is a great learning experience which we hope to build on to hopefully make next year even better! Thank You to all our event sponsors, volunteers, contributors and club members who make this all possible year after. Check out all the pictures in the 2016 RaceWay 5K Photo Album!
We had the only corn in the state with the presidential seal of approval!
What a great weekend at the Carpentersville Civil War Reenactment! Yeah we were raising money by selling corn to all the event goers but we had a fun time doing it! Including our pie eating contest which everyone enjoyed. Check out all the great pics in our Civil War and Pie Eating Contest photo albums!
The Village of Carpentersville's National Night out is slowing growing into a great annual event. More and more seems to be added each year which makes the overall event that much more enjoyable for everybody that attends. Inflatables, dunk tank, fire trucks, police vehicles, free pop corn and icees and the abundance of community organizations and companies passing out other goodies plus a lot more! There was a little bit for everybody in your family spectrum!
 
We are once again glad to have the chance to be a part of it and want give a BIG THANK YOU to the individuals at the Village of Carpentersville who made it all possible! Great Job Guys!
2016 is in the books! Congratulations to the Kicking Aces on their big win through some tough competition!
 
Everyone came to play that night as we had 3 great games! In the end the Kicking Aces came up victorious defeating the reining champ the Dill KickLz! Afterwards we all enjoyed each others company at our favorite after party spot Rosati's Pizzeria in Carpentersville!
Congratulations to this year's Jim Krenz Memorial Scholarship winners Edgar and Melissa who are recent Dundee Crown graduates and are well on their way to a prosperous future. We had the pleasure of meeting these 2 bright young individuals at our weekly meeting and the little time we had to get to know them we were glad to see that they were this years winners. 
 
Both have colleges selected and careers in mind which include a degree in computer science and an ambition to become a kindergarten teacher. From what they accomplished during their high school years to what they plan to do, their journey is only just beginning but they are very capable of  taking on the challenges ahead. Best of luck you too!
 
Thank You to the Krenz Family and the Amy Plumbing Family for their continued financial support making this possible year after year. Thank You to our internal Scholarship committee for making a tough but good selection with this year's winners. 
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. https://vimeo.com/user10520825/review/83880880/2ba8f337f8
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!

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
