We were happy to host our guest speaker Jim Wiseman from the Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association Organization and even more excited to learn he was a fellow Rotarian from a neighboring community. Jim has been with the organization for over 30 years and it was easy to tell the personal satisfaction he receives from his day to day work activities.

For those of you who don't know Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association, NISRA for short, is an established organization that works with community park districts to run and host recreational activities for individual with special needs. Allowing these individuals a chance to interact with one another and experience fun and educational recreational activities, that range from simple art work & crafts to rock climbing & ice skating, that this organization is able to provide.The joy and excitement these individuals experience or teaching them the ability to interact with others and build friendships are just some of the benefits received from the people and volunteers who work for the NISRA organization and make it all worth wile.
