Rick Rivkin Shares the Value of Rotary Training
Last Tuesday, Rick shared an overview of Rotary, our purpose and opportunities in a training to help us log on and use our Rotary tools! These are excerpts from his presentation and his power point is available by request!
While Rotary is perhaps best known as a service organization Rotary actually started in February 1905 as a fellowship club that morphed into a business fellowship and then incorporated the concept of service.  Today, Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever. The key take-a-way  “one-size does not fit all” proves that Rotary is for everyone and anyone with a – Service Above Self – mindset.
From the Rotary Convention enjoy a variety of inspiring breakout sessions that will continue into July, via zoom, after the virtual convention, to help you start the Rotary year off right.
Register for July breakouts using the table found in the link (July Breakouts).  There you will find the session title, date and time, registration or recording link as well as a brief description for each breakout. Session times will be listed in UTC-5. All sessions are in English. Simultaneous interpretation will not be available.
Please note this table is updated by breakout session organizers. If you do not see all session details at this time, please check back regularly for updates. Links to any available recordings will be posted on an ongoing basis through the month of August. Session resources will be uploaded to the Convention Breakouts learning topic on the Learning Center  at the discretion of each breakout session organizer.
      This is a unique Community Service Project for the Rotary Club of Northbrook members to serve on!
Total Link 2 is a non-profit here in Northbrook that we have supported with grants in the past.  They work with young disabled adults, providing job opportunities and growth.
With the pandemic with us, they are offering virtual summer programs that we can get involved in.  Up to 8 volunteers are needed. The director, Alisa Martorano has outlined the 2 projects available to participate in.  Please let me know ASAP if you are willing to serve and which program you prefer. Either the Happy Mail program or the Accountability Check-In program.
      We will be given an orientation session prior to the start of the second summer session that runs from July 20th-August 28th 2020.
PLEASE READ the requirements provided by Alisa's before you decide to respond. You must be able to follow through for the entire session. I truly feel this will be an experience you will always remember!
