Northbrook Rotary News and Information
Rotary 800 fundraising event, held at Experience Rock ‘n Roll in Northbrook Court was our biggest fundraiser of the year.
The weather was a bit of a challenge but those who attended enjoyed great music, delicious food, a Live and Silent Auction, and the drawing of the winning raffle tickets. With generous corporate and individual support, the event raised more than $69,000.
Our gratitude extends to all of the event sponsors: Lewis Floor and Home and Good Earth Lighting at the Gold level; Foley Cadillac, First Bank of Highland Bank,  JP Morgan, and Unique Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning at the Silver level. Bronze level; Allgauer’s, Mark Bernhard, as well as several anonymous donors.
The community stepped up in a big way with their generosity. The following restaurants provided our guests with a delicious array of food choices: Claim Co., DiPescara, Stir Crazy, Fine’s restaurant and catering, Mariano’s, Sunset Foods, Toffee Break desserts, the Bent Fork Bakery and Starbucks. Otto Brandt Winery served an assortment of fine wines. Everyone enjoyed the music of A to Z Entertainment. Howard Wallach had everyone up on the dance floor. Businesses and individuals gave certificates for attendees to bid on. There are too many to mention, but we thank them for this additional revenue source.
Thanks to all the Club members who sold raffle tickets, worked behind the scenes and stepped up to help make this a successful event. We certainly couldn’t have asked for a more fun evening.

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.)

News from Rotary International
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
