Our club sponsored Scots Movement Rotary Interact Club* at Highland Park High School needs assistance with their Lego Drive which will continue into 2017. If you can help, bring your Legos to any meeting. Here are the details:
LEGO DRIVE - Collecting new or old legos for Highland Park Central. Legos help students with focus and behavior issues. Currently, there is only one set in the principals office. The Interact Club would like to collect enough legos for each classroom.
* WHAT IS INTERACT? Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with other young people in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding.

District 5710 is thrilled to announce that the Nominating Committee for Rotary International Director in Zone 27 has selected our Rotarian, Larry Dimmitt, of the Rotary Club of Topeka Downtown, to be an RI Director in 2018-20.
This is a tremendous honor for Larry, and most fitting, given his service and commitment over many years to Rotary International, The Rotary Foundation, our zone, district and his club. Larry is currently serving as the Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinator for Zone 27, he is a Past District Governor for District 5710, and he has served in many other roles throughout his Rotary career.
Many of you know and have worked with Larry through his years of very active service in our district. His selection to serve on the RI Board of Directors is an acknowledgement of his dedication to Rotary and his ability to further the purposes and objectives of Rotary International and its extension throughout the world. Please join us in congratulating Larry, and showing him how much we in his home district particularly appreciate his service.

Thank you to our volunteers: Marie Pyko (Chair), Nicki Salazar, Sherda Williams, Brad Walker, Linda Ireland, Jane McCall, Gary Shofner, Lee Morris, and Ramin Mahmoudian.
On September 15th at Garfield Park Community Center, club Rotarians spent the day with over 500 4th graders teaching them about The Incredible Journey- a lesson to identify the different ways water moves through the water cycle. Each student was given a "sun" bead on a string and rolled a dice sending them to different stations - ocean, river, clouds, soil, plant, lake, animal, ground water and glacier to receive a different bead. At the end of the activity each student had a bead bracelet and a story about their water cycle journey.
