As of July 1st, the Rotary Club of Waukegan welcomed Mr. Alain Oller as the new President. Mr. Oller is no stranger to the podium as he was first installed as President to the club exactly 20 years ago and served his term from 1999 to 2000. After a two-decade hiatus, he again stepped forward to lead and was installed June 15th in a ceremony at the Genesee Theatre. At that same time, Ms. Suzanne Gibson became Rotary District 6440’s new District Governor. Waukegan’s club is the oldest club in Rotary International’s home district, having been granted a charter on October 20, 1916. Some of the community service projects that the Rotary Club of Waukegan have been involved in are Feed the Hungry at First United Methodist Church, clothing drives, Salvation Army bell ringing, School District 60 reading projects, bike path clean-up, and tree and flower planting around the city, to name a few.  Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our
communities, and in ourselves. Rotary’s priorities include promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education and growing local economies.
