With 2020 looming, it's time for Club Visioning Sessions! (20/20, get it?)The last time it occurred was in 2012-2013. At that time about 30 members spent 3-4 hours at a workshop, making a plan for what Rotary wants to do in the next 3-5 years..
 
A somber reminder: on October 24, 2017, the City of Highland Park recognized that day as World Polio Day in recognition of Rotary International's effort to eliminate this paralyzing disease for which there is no cure, but which can be prevented through vaccines.
 
Anyone who can play an instrument is invited to join the District Conference Band.
