We did it again! It is hard to believe that we have successfully completed our 5th Annual Pub Crawl Event and it was a BIG SUCCESS! Of course we could not have done it without the help from everyone involved! Ranging from the supporting bars down to our club members and volunteers and everyone else in between. Thank You All for making it another great year!
A good amount of money was raised that day which goes towards many of the great causes our organization supports and will help a lot of people in need both near and far! Check out all the Great Pictures in this years event photo album. We will be back at it again next year as we plan our 6th annual event. Thanks Again for all your support and we will see you next year!

When anyone ever inquires about Rotary the usual first question is "What is Rotary?". After that is explained the second question usually is "Does it cost anything to be a member?" The answers is YES! Every Rotary Club has dues and each club is different.
As part of the makeup of the Rotary International Organization each club is required to pay a certain amount per each member annually which covers operation costs and a subscription to the Rotarian magazine. Add to that the additional cost of the meeting place and potential meal at every meeting. In short membership costs vary from $100 to $200 paid quarterly depending on the individual club.
We know that paying this amount every 3 months can be a burden to people who would like to be pat of a club but are unable to make that much of a financial commitment. We are happy to announce a drastic change in our due structure to give people who want to be a part of the club but are not able to pay that much out of pocket.
Got Musical Instruments?...
... that are old and you are willing to donate? The Rotary Club of Carpentersville-Morning is teaming up with the District 300 Foundation to get the word out about their ongoing Instrument Drive dedicated to provide local students the opportunity to have access to musical instruments that normally would not be available. Even if the instrument is in need of repair the District 300 Foundation will take care of the expenses in order for the students to use them. To date the Foundation has collected and repaired over 35 instruments that are currently in use by students at Carpentersville Middle School & Lakewood.
Any musical instrument donated is put into an instrument library where students can check them out as needed just like they would in a normal library. For students who can't afford to purchase or rent an instrument this is a great way to give them free access to instruments they otherwise could not afford.
Feel free to pass on the information to anyone you think may help. Anyone able to donate please contact Diane Magerko @ DianeMagerko@Comcast.net to coordinate the donation.
Carpentersville Rotary is always open to welcoming new speakers to our weekly meetings. Anyone with interest please let us know so we can schedule a time and date. If you know of anybody who would be willing to speak please let us know also. It is always nice to learn something new as well as meet a new person which is what any new speaker will bring to our club. Generally we have speakers at least twice a month and anyone asked to speak is given a 30 minute window during are weekly meetings to present themselves to the club, meet with the members, and enjoy a good breakfast!
