This year marked the 20th anniversary of the Joliet Rotary Youth Leadership Conference. The two-day conference was held on March 20 and 21 and included nine students from each of Joliet’s three high schools, Joliet Catholic, Joliet Central, and Joliet West.
Many thanks to coordinating volunteer Dan Mihelich and all the 2016 Rotary School Dictionary Project volunteers.
To honor the rich tradition of Rotary, longtime member Albert Johnson bequeathed a generous donation to the Joliet Rotary Club in 1993. These funds were used to create the Albert Johnson Memorial Endowment Fund which is used to bring quality programming to our members and to preserve Joliet Rotary’s rich history.
“Albert truly loved Rotary and he thought it was very important to maintain great programs,” said Past President Ed Dollinger. “Having this fund readily available has enabled the club to bring in diverse and interesting programs.”
The donations totaled approximately $40,000 in 2003 and since then has grown through strategic investments and is now valued at approximately $65,000. Over the years, $28,000 has been disbursed to cover the cost of programs including the club’s 100th anniversary celebration, our annual youth leadership program, and fireside chats that help educate new members.
