   In April, Rob't Greene received the District Governor's Citation of Rotarian of the Year for 2018 for his leadership in our club's Literacy Program. He continues to work hard to make sure children in East Moline-Silvis get the help they need in schools like iPads, books and mentors. Thank you Rob't for your hard work!

On November 28, coats were distributed to children in the East Moline, Silvis and Carbon Cliff elementary schools. Coats for Kids chairman, Roger Dolleslager, contacted six school administrators to help identify children in need of a warm coat. This is the seventh year for the Coats for Kids program and over 1000 coats have been distributed since the inception of the program. Thanks to the planning committee, Rotary members and generous local businesses that made this possible.

Twenty-five students from UTHS signed up to job shadow Career Professionals in East Moline and Silvis.  For the past 25 years, the Rotary Club of East Moline-Silvis organizes “Job Shadow Day” in which a High School Senior is paired with a Rotarian or another professional in their chosen career field. The premise behind job-shadowing, enables a student to spend some time observing a professional in the career they are considering for their future.  For students who are unsure of what field they want to go into, job shadowing may reveal some inside information about the culture of that field instead of waiting until they graduate.
