From the Fundraising Committee
Help is needed in planning our 4th of July activities.  If you are interested in being on the planning committee, please contact Kate Hall or Alan Karzan.  
The first planning meeting will be Tuesday, February 27th at 5:00 pm at the Northbrook Public Library.
From the Community Service Committee
The Northbrook Symphony Orchestra needs two volunteers for each performance to distribute free bottles of water during intermissions. 
Performances will be held at the Sheely Center at Glenbrook North High School.  Volunteers should arrive at 3:30pm and expect to be there until at least 5:15pm.  
Concerts are scheduled on March 25th, and May 6th. Volunteers get free admission to the concert.  
The Northbrook Public Library needs volunteers to help as ushers at its film and music programs.  The events are held on Wednesdays and weekends.  Your commitment would involve 1-2 shifts per week for about 2-3 hours at a time.  Ushers, of course, get to see the show!
If you’re interested in any of these projects, please contact Dave Masters.

Rotary Mottoes
The first motto of Rotary International, "He Profits Most Who Serves Best," was approved at the second Rotary Convention, held in Portland, Oregon, in August 1911. The phrase was first stated by a Chicago Rotarian, Art Sheldon, who made a speech in 1910 that included the remark, "He profits most who serves his fellows best."
At about the same time, Ben Collins, president of the Rotary Club of Minneapolis, Minnesota, commented that the proper way to organize a Rotary club was through the principle his club had adopted - "Service, Not Self."
These two slogans, slightly modified, were formally approved to be the official mottoes of Rotary at the 1950 Convention in Detroit - "He Profits Most Who Serves Best" and "Service Above Self." The 1989 Council on Legislation established "Service Above Self" as the principal motto of Rotary, since it best explains the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service.
Rotary Peace Studies
Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution. These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
In just over a decade, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,000 fellows for careers in peace building. Many of them are serving as leaders at international organizations or have started their own foundations. 
Each year, the Rotary Foundation awards up to 50 fellowships for master’s degrees and 50 for certificate studies at premier universities around the world.
  • Master’s degree programs: Last 15 to 24 months and require a practical internship of two to three months during the academic break.
  • Professional development certificate program: For experienced professionals and lasts three months with two to three weeks of field study.
