The Rotary District 6400 Virtual Conference was a great success! The Wayne Rotary Club won the Dick Hedke Award for new service project - our Hope Not Handcuffs collaboration. We also made the highest per capita contribution to the Polio Plus Program, thanks to our Wayne Rotary Foundation. We were also mentioned for our participation in the Rotary Passport visit program.

District Governor-Elect inducted two new Wayne Rotary members.  Our newest members are shown with Club President Charlotte Tarwacki, sponsors Lois Vanstipdonk , Trish Hampton and District Governor-elect John Chambers.
The Wayne Rotary Club purchased new shirts for the Wayne Memorial Interact Club.  The shirts were designed by the interact club and made at the William D. Ford Career Technical Center.
Here are few pictures from our Wayne Memorial Interact Club.  They had a successful book drive.  They will be using these books to keep our Little Free Libraries stocked. 
Ten years ago, member Nate Weiser at the young age of 89, started our dictionary project.  He proposed to the membership that we should focus on Literacy.  Membership agreed. We have distributed on average 350 dictionaries each year to every third grade student (private and public schools) in the City of Wayne. This year, our Wayne Fire Fighters joined us in our distribution efforts. Oh, I forgot, Nate is still with us.
 
Using some time during our Club Assembly to make Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches for the homeless shelter. Our Club does this every month.
Our first Little Free Library(LFL) was installed at Roosevelt-McGrath elementary school. Now we have three more.  Last week Wayne Memorial H.S., Goudy Park and Rotary Park II received their libraries. Take a look at the pictures.
Today the first Little Free Library (LFL) was installed at Roosevelt-McGrath Elementary school. The LFL was registered at the LFL web site and soon can be found world-wide on their LFL map. One done, four more to go.
Recently, the Rotaract Club of U of M made a trip to Guatemala.  Our club put together some school supplies and a few soccer balls to take with them on their trip.  Here are a few pictures from their trip.
 

We just finished delivery of the dictionaries to the 3rd Graders. We delivered 278 dictionaries to Hoover, Roosevelt, Schweitzer, Taft, St. Michael's, St. Joseph's and St. Mary's.

Thanks for everyone's help. If you didn't get a chance to help this year, make it a point to help next year. It is a very rewarding experience.
