The New Jerri Hoffmann Child & Family in Center from the Children Home & Aid Organization here in Carpentersville will provide top notch child care opportunities for those who seek and for those who qualify for assistance. Children who are currently enrolled and the old facility who will be soon moving to the new facility will experience a major upgrade and increased enjoyment for everything the new center has to offer.
Recently Julie Carson from the Children Home & Aid Organization visited our club to discuss the latest and greatest with the new facility. Set to open in July, the new state of the art facility will quickly become one of the premier child care facilities in our local community and any parent interested in enrolling their child should consider sooner than later. The center does provide government assistance for those who qualify which will allow any parent to still provide excellent childcare at a much reduced rate which is very beneficial for the parent and child in many ways! For more information about enrollment and the new center itself  you can contact Julie at: 847.426.9505 or

Through his life of service author Robert Beezat is a very loving individual who has lived a great life and shares what he has learned through his book "Knowing & Loving: The Keys to Real Happiness" so that others can benefit from the knowledge he has obtained over the years. The hopes behind the book is that others can also live a good life or ask the questions they need to start the path to a better life.
Recently Robert spoke to our club and discussed the meaning behind his book and shared with some of his fondest memories which have developed him into the man he is today. In his words "We are born to know and love" and through that we as individuals are able to make life decisions tha will hopefully will lead us to live a good authentic life. Most people can relate to what Robert has to say and reading his book can benefit you in more ways than one. to learn mor about Robert and hi book visit his link here:

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
Illiteracy traps adults, and their families, in poverty
Around the world, millions of adults are unable to read or write, and therefore struggle to earn a living for themselves and their families. Even in the United States, with its considerable resources, there are 36 million adults who can’t read better than the average third-grader, according to the international nonprofit ProLiteracy. In Detroit, Michigan, a widely cited 2003 survey conducted by the National Institute for Literacy found that almost half of residents over age 16 were functionally illiterate -- unable to use reading, speaking, writing, and computer skills in everyday life....
Meet Rotary’s new president
This excerpt from the July issue of The Rotarian magazine profiles the 2015-16 RI president. Before he gives a speech, K.R. Ravindran doesn’t like flowery, adulatory introductions. They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article. Negotiating Days of Tranquility during the Sri Lankan civil war so that health workers could administer drops of polio vaccine? Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...
