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.

Want a glimpse of the 2015-16 Year-In-Review book created for Curtis?  The pages have been added to our Photo Album.

If you missed the meeting on October 15th, here is the PDF of the PowerPoint Rehan Reza and Linda Aziz presented on our club's Global Grant in Bangladesh - CLICK HERE.  This is a great presentation that shows how the contributions you make to the Rotary Foundation can be matched by the District and Rotary International to make a great impact on the lives of many people.
