Rotary condemns deadly attack on polio security personnel in Pakistan
Rotary members and our partners in the fight to eradicate polio offer our heartfelt condolences and express a deep sadness in the wake of a horrific bomb attack in Quetta, Pakistan, that took the lives of at least 15 security personnel on 13 January. This tragic attack outside a polio immunization center is a stark reminder of the dangers faced by Rotary, our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, and the brave women and men on the front lines of our effort to protect all children from the paralyzing effects of polio. While the bombing will be investigated, one thing is clear:...

Speaker: Brad Schneider
                Former U.S. Congressman for the 10th District of Illinois (2013 to 2015), and current Democratic candidate for the same office. In 2014, he lost his bid for re-election in a rematch against former Republican congressman Bob Dold. His parents fled a pogrom in Poland and followed the American Dream to Denver, where he was raised. He received a B.A. in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern in 1983, an M.B.A. from Northwestern in 1988, and went into consulting for small and medium size businesses. He moved to Deerfield in 1991 and raised two sons with his wife who works for Mesirow. Brad values family and community. He wants to address education and climate change in office. He acknowledged that money in politics and re-districting were both threats to democracy. He deplores the congressional work schedule of Monday through Thursday, which contributes to congressional gridlock. He is concerned that 1/3 of people over his age (54) have zero saved for retirement. He wants to have a broad debate on deficit spending, acknowledging the need to tighten belts and make hard decisions. Gun control is a very personal matter to Brad, and he is proud of his “F” rating from the NRA.

Last year, our club helped fund a Rotary Foundation Matching Grant program supporting a Rotary Club sponsored prosthesis clinic in Bolivia.  Our club's funds were matched with funds from The Rotary Foundation; $2.50 for each $1 we contributed.  Take a look at the impact this program has had on one gentleman!

Our club was able to participate in the matching grant program because our members contribute each year the the Annual Programs Fund of The Rotary Foundation.  You can make a contribution via PayPal by clicking here.
