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!

Rotary and ShelterBox support Syrian refugees
In Syria, where a civil war has been raging since 2011, more than 6,000 people flee the country every day. As of September, more than 4.1 million people have become refugees, and 7.6 million more have been internally displaced. “The plight of Syria’s refugees is a litmus test for the world's compassion,” says Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko. “Rotary members worldwide are profoundly disheartened by the refugee crisis now unfolding in Syria and other parts of the world,” which the United Nations has described as the worst in decades. “Rotary is following the situation closely...

Under One Sky lights the way to a better world

The 17 ambitious goals constitute a road map for finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems, and dovetail with Rotary members’ work to create positive change in their communities and around the world.
