The St Charles Breakfast Rotary Club (SCBRC) is one of 33,000 Clubs in over 200 countries. Members include business men and women, educators, government workers, health care providers, bankers, community leaders and others who all support the mission of Rotary, “SERVICE ABOVE SELF.”
 
One of Rotary’s focus areas is vocational service. Through this service area, the St Charles Breakfast Rotary Club is offering a $1,000 vocational scholarship to a graduating senior from St Charles North or East High School. The scholarship is intended for a student who is preparing for a career that require less than a four-year degree (associate degree, diploma or certificate) in order to enter the world of work and become successful and productive. 
 
Information on the application process is available through the Guidance Department and Career and Tech Department at both high schools. Interested students may also download the application on the Rotary Club’s website, www.stcbreakfastrotary.org. The download is located on the home page, on the right side, near the bottom.
 
Criteria for selection shall include but not be limited to: high school grades related to chosen vocational field, employment and/or volunteer experience in chosen field, extra curricular activities, letters of recommendation, interview rapport with Rotarians, financial need and future plans. 
 
The recipient will be recognized at the Senior Honors Night in May and with their family and Rotarians at a Tuesday morning club meeting at McNally’s Irish Pub. If there are any questions, please contact Ann Richards, Vocational Service Chair, arich4@sbcglobal.net.

Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family
With 12 children -- six girls and six boys -- the Labordes hardly needed to add another member to their family. But they did: Over 40 years ago, Julia Mullikin, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the United States, became like another daughter to this large family in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. "She's been a blessing for us," says Maria Victoria Hallal de Laborde who was 18 when Mullikin arrived in 1973. Like many exchange students, Mullikin remains close to her host family. So close that when one of Laborde's sisters was diagnosed with a rare, fatal disease, Mullikin arranged to send the...
Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles, Potalib was inspired by the Incredible Edible project, an international food-sharing movement founded by Nick Green in England. The Rotaract members obtained Green's permission to apply the concept in France, changing the name to "Potalib," a contraction of "...
Anti-vaccine movement may have global repercussions
Supporters of the anti-vaccine movement question the safety, efficacy and necessity of the very medicines that have so greatly reduced our children's risk of catching a host of once-common but potentially very serious infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles and whooping cough. And then there's polio, the disabling, sometimes fatal virus that was every American parent's worst nightmare until effective vaccines were developed in the 1950s — and which still infects children in the developing world. Some who oppose vaccines are well-meaning parents who have come to believe — wrongly in the...
Rotary’s Response to Ebola Outbreak
Rotary continues to follow the developments surrounding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and advice of the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our partners in international public health. Strengthening the health infrastructure and supporting and sustaining the deployment of government health workers throughout these outbreak areas are greatly needed. Although Rotary has limited opportunities to respond at a corporate level, our strength as an organization is firmly rooted in the grassroots response of Rotary clubs and Rotarians. Clubs around the...
Since Boys' Week, Rotary has been empowering young leaders
The history of Rotary's work with youth dates back to the 1920s, when many clubs took part in an international event known as Boys' Week. The first Boys' Week was held in New York City in May 1920 by the Rotary Club of New York and other local organizations. The event was part of an effort to promote youth development in the areas of education, citizenship, health and hygiene, and vocation. New York club members reported on the success of Boys' Week at the 1920 Rotary convention, hoping that it would become part of the Boys' Work program, which Rotary had established several years earlier...
