Rotary is steeped in traditions of the past. Some are dusty and ancient yet some have withstood the test of time and should be embraced by every club.
 
Let us honor the old traditions and embrace the new by incorporating these ideas into your meeting plans.

Small scholarships help Illinois adults build their careers

Small scholarships help adults return to school and trade a job for a career - In a seemingly affluent Chicago suburb, poverty stops many adult students from affording classes to advance their skillsets. Local Rotary clubs are helping pay for school.

In 1931, at the height of the Great Depression,
Herbert J. Taylor was a successful, young senior executive
with the Jewel Tea Company in Chicago, Illinois.
 
Mr Herbert left his great position at Jewal Tea, to take over the then failing Club Aluminum. Herbert Taylor believed that if the people at Club Aluminum could “think right,” they would “do right” and he set out to find a simple guide to “right conduct” as he described, “a sort of ethical yardstick” - something everyone could apply to what they thought, said and did in their relations with others.

The 74 Clubs in District 5790 have a proud legacy of supporting basic education and literacy in their communities and the world. Whether it be providing dictionaries to 3rd graders, reading to elementary school children, providing rebuilt laptops or delivering hot spots for remote learning during the pandemic, members throughout the district have worked with communities to identify the need, develop ideas and implement solutions that assure basic education and literacy is available throughout the world.
