The next time you stop at the Love Our Community Thrift Shop on Sunnyside St., look for the sturdy plastic brown park bench on site.  It was recently donated by the Rotary Club of Lake Township to LOC as a reward for collecting 500 pounds of plastic within six months.  TREX offers these benches as a reward to schools and community groups as an incentive to reuse plastic, and prevent it from going to landfills.  TREX is a U.S. manufacturer  of premium outdoor living products including benches, decking, and railing, and for the past decade has accepted plastic recycled film for the past 10 years to create their product line.
 
In less than a year, the Lake Township Rotary Club has earned three beautiful park benches; the final destinations for the other two are yet to be determined.
 
For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
 
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.
Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
