Jan. 12, 2016:  Our program will be Utica J. Gray, Chicago's Regional Director.  She will tell us of the work of "Fresh Start", dealing with children with facial deformities.  "Fresh Start" is part of the Caring for Kids Foundation, related to the Plastic Surgery Foundation.  Come and learn about this vital work.

January 26.  Our program will be presented by Nancy Bothne, telling us about the mission and work of Amnesty International.  This organization received a Nobel Peace Prize for the admirable achievements.

    Rotary Chicago Far North continues to encourage and mentor youth of the Interact Club of Sullivan High School, the only Rotary Interact club in Chicago Public Schools. In February 2015, Ms. Shafia Khatoon, Interact Club President spoke eloquently  about encouraging other young leaders to dedicate and engage in service. Are you also passionate about helping youth and engaging them in service? Look no further - join the Rotary Chicago Far North: service and fellowship.
