I cant tell who is having more fun, The Rotarians or the Kids???? Dictionary distribution kicked off at a couple campuses this morning and will continue through November and December. Sign ups will be coming out as each campus decided when they want the dictionaries to be delivered...
During the Rotary Foundation presentation today, Jay Givens mentioned that Amazon will contribute 0.5% of eligible purchases to your choice of charities through http://smile.amazon.com.  You must use that link to have the contribution made (not the normal www.amazon.com).  
 
When searching for the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International in the charity list, search using "Rotary Foundation Evanston" You can also use the District 5730 charity "Rotary District 5730 Charitable Foundation Inc."

Ted Baker assumed duties as Club President today and moderated a Club Assembly.  Ted announced the board decision to host an exchange student next year and reminded members to nominate juniors for Camp RYLA June 5-9.  Anyone interested in being a host family for 2017-18 may contact Coralyn Dillard and nominations for Camp RYLA should be sent to Jay Givens.  Jay introduced the March Student of the Month, Layne Mustian, to the club and Coralyn introduced Rotary Youth Exchange student, Fer Dilli Nano, and gave an update on her activities.
 
Ted also shared his vision for some upcoming changes to board structure, adding Youth Committee and RWD Committee and possibly moving chair responsibilities away from board members in order to establish stronger consistency of the committees.  Kim Street shared reflections on PETS and emphasized the strength of our club as so many of our members were leaders for this event at the district level.  
 
Charles Starnes gave a short statement about the importance of the Rotary Foundations and V.O.
