Many of you know Geneva Rotary from our Swedish Days Food Booth with Ream's Brats and Roasted Corn. This is our major fundraiser but due to COVID, Swedish Days was cancelled. Each year we make about $14,000 from this event - that's a lot of brats! With this money, we:
1) Support numerous local charities (Food for Health, Kane County Fit for Kids, Royal Family Kids Camp and Mutual Ground and more) and do local service projects - like a Thanksgiving Day Clean Up service project for a family that needs assistance.
2) Send 8-10 GHS students to Rotary Youth Leadership Camp - a weekend retreat to improve youth leadership skills
3) For 37 years, Rotary has sponsored a Holiday Party for the clients and staff of the Association for Individual Development. Approximately 100 adults with developmental disabilities are treated to a holiday meal, music, a magician and a visit from Santa delivering individualized gifts.
Geneva Rotary has been a part of the community for 55 years. Our motto is 'Service Above Self'. Rotary members are dedicated to serving their communities and also participate in activities of an international nature. Geneva Rotarians have traveled to Guatemala to assist in a clean water project and Rotary International is a major force driving the eradication of polio. Geneva Rotary also sponsors students from other countries that want to spend a year studying in the US and have sponsored US students interested in studying overseas.
