  2014 coming to a club near you!
Our District Foundation Team is getting ready to take The Rotary Foundation message on the road. 2014 ROADSHOW SCHEDULE, Seven to Choose From. will be hosted throughout the District between Tuesday, September 23rd and Monday, November 3rd.  Members of the District Foundation Committee will be visiting the Rotary Clubs of Darien, Moraine Valley, Joliet, Oak Park-River Forest, Lansing, Aurora, and Chicago Little Village to share the the life-changing stories of our Foundation's work throughout the Rotary World.   The locations have been selected so host clubs can invite the clubs closest to their meeting locations.  However, all Rotarians are welcome and encouraged to attend whichever of the seven Roadshows is most convenient.  
Contact the club of your choice to secure your reservation.  The Roadshow will pave the way for Rotary International's annual celebration of the Foundation during the month of November.
