We will soon be kicking off our second year of our Mentoring Forward program with the students at Highland Park High School.  Our goal this year?  Move into a more personal, one-on-one format - Additional get-acquainted group activities - Have some FUN!  We will begin with an "ice breaker" to identify potential Rotarian/Student matches.  The date for this event will be announced soon, but for now, the committee needs an indication of the number of Rotarians/Rotarian Friends ready to move forward with this important "Service Above Self" project.  CLICK HERE to add your name to the list of interested members.  When list #1 is full, go on to list #2 and #3.
Our Interact Club at Highland Park High School is off to a great start and YOU CAN HELP with their first two projects - School Supply Drive and a Garage Sale!  See details in the stories below.  Pictured above with Angel Zimmerman.
Our Scots Movement Interact Club at Highland Park High School is conducting a school supplies drive.  School supplies are on sale right now.  Please pick up some supplies and bring to our noon meeting or drop them by at Angel Zimmerman's office (Zimmerman & Zimmerman, P.A.; 909 SE Quincy). 
The Scots Movement Interact Club is holding a garage sale tentatively planned for Saturday, September 29th.  YOU CAN HELP by combing your home and garage for items you no longer need and donating them for the garage sale!  Items can be taken to Zimmerman & Zimmerman, P.A. at 909 SE Quincy.
