In 2018 Rotary District 6440 was able to mobilize volunteers from nine Rotary Clubs to ring bells for the Salvation Army Radiothon at Woodfield Mall.                                                          This year our Rotary District has a much larger opportunity to participate in the Salvation Army Radiothon taking place on December 6th, 2019.  Rotary District 6440 has been asked if we would like to be the only organization represented in the bell ringing for the Salvation Army Radiothon.  This commitment will be to have two volunteers at each door (10 doors) in two hour shifts from 10:00 A.M.. until 8:00 P.M.. This commitment will require approximately one hundred (100) people.  This could be two Rotarians per door or One family per door.
      Please contact President JoAnn by August 18th. She will need the names of the volunteers along with their time of availability.  The bell ringing will take place on December 6th, 2019.  
      This opportunity aligns with Rotary President Mark Maloney's strategic goals to "expand our engagement in the community" and "include family in our service projects".  I love being a Rotarian in District 6440 and know we can do this if we all work together. 
The updated duty roster for the rest of the Rotary year is now available for download. Look down the right side for the home page download files and click on the file to download.
RI President-elect Mark Daniel Maloney’s theme for 2019-20, Rotary Connects the World, asks Rotarians to strengthen the many ways that Rotary Connects the World, building the connections that allow talented, thoughtful, and generous people to unite and take meaningful action through Rotary service.

This month in Tanzania the honorary plaque to former Antioch Member Bob Diess was mounted on the wall of the Kilimahewa Educational Centre.  This plaque was purchased to recognize the amazing work Bob did to help secure a Rotary International Global Grant for the Kilimahewa Educational Centre.  This grant funded various educational opportunities for vulnerable teens in Tanzania to learn skills such as a computers skills, agro-business skills, and entrepreneurial skills. The global grant led to a strong partnership with Rotary and the development of an Interact club within Kilimahewa.  28 students helped from the 1st Interact club in memory of Bob and the amazing work he did to help the school.  
 
These pictures show the plaque mounted on the wall at Kilimahewa.  The new Interact advisers attending a Rotary meeting to accept the plaque committing to start a Interact club.  And the first Interact meeting with Rotary members present sharing goals and ideas for the future.
