Northbrook Rotary News and Information

Rotarians from Northbrook and Deerfield served dinner to servicemen, servicewomen, and their families at the USO at Great Lakes Naval Training Center on May 6, 2015.  Northbrook Rotarian Jane McCarthy presented a check to the USO to pay for the dinner.  Eight Rotary clubs in District 6440 contributed financially to this service project.

Biz Stone Says This Will Be the Future of Marketing

Forget social media or big advertising campaigns that cost big bucks. The new marketing strategy that's trumping traditional methods is philanthropy.

Most products or services can be purchased from multiple vendors across most geographic barriers. How can you differentiate yourself from the competition? One way may be giving money to charitable causes. Big businesses have been practicing philanthropy for a long time. A survey of large corporations by CECP found that 59 percent of them increased their philanthropy between 2007 and 2012. More companies are realizing that spending money on doing good is really good for business and the bottom line.

District 6440 is proud to make available handsome and customizable "Four-Way Test Plaques" for businesses and clubs. Each plaque can feature a color logo of the recognized business or governmental body. Plaques cost $60 plus $7 shipping, with $15 for each plaque being donated to the End Polio Now campaign. Quantity discounts are also available.
You can now search for a Rotary club with RI's free mobile app. In the Apple app store and Android market, it's called the Rotary Club Locator from Rotary International. The app also will soon be offered for BlackBerry phones. Image



The Rotary Club Locator app helps you find a Rotary club meeting when you're on the go.

  • The "Near Me" search locates clubs within a physical radius of 100 miles. (Note: Actual driving distances may be further.)
  • A keyword search for clubs. This search looks for the keyword in either the club name or meeting location address. This is useful for finding clubs that are outside of the 100-mile radius from your current location.
  • A map showing a club's location and driving directions
  • The ability to save search results to a list of favorite clubs
  • The ability to add a club to your phone's contact list
  • The club's website and primary phone number, if available
  • A search function to find clubs by district




We greatfully recognize the work of our esteemed Newsletter Editors, Ron Dahlquist and Gayle Curcio. Thank you both for your wonderful service to our club!

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
