A past recipient of the Leo dal Santo Award, Eldon Mains has participated in and accepted responsible positions in the club, serving as past President as well as member of both the club Board of Directors as well as the club Foundation Board of Directors.

Eldon spends countless hours, week in and week out, year in and year out, to this very day, helping in matters across many committees. He has grown with this club, as our outreach has grown, our events have grown, our fundraising, our parade, our scholarship program, both of our boards, he has been there. For more than thirty years he has consistently been an instrumental force in our club’s success.

He works tirelessly to keep track of our scholarship students and has been responsible for our most lucrative fundraiser, our annual Rose Sale, our tax returns, and so much more. We have all turned to Eldon for answers, for advice, and for counsel about Rotary matters and Rotary history.

Past presidents describe Eldon as 1) accountable, 2) dependable 3) knows just about everything or will find out 4) and fills in as president at club meetings if necessary. He is our “go to” person for keeping our website up to date as well as our Facebook page. He continues to be active in a variety of functions such as fundraising activities such as our annual rose sale, community projects, club committees, fellowship events as well as district meetings.

Many of us have been following Ben Petrick's career since he was a star athlete at Glencoe High School. Ben was drafted right out of high school by the Colorado Rockies organization and his major league baseball career started! Shortly after getting to the "bigs" Ben discovered that he had Young-Onset Parkinson's Disease. His program to us details what has taken place in his life and how he has made the adjustment away from a once very promising career. His talk was very inspirational and Ben stayed and autographed copies of his book "40,000 to One". 


Ben is now working as a special assistant to the Hillsboro Hops teaching young players how to adapt to life of professional baseball.

I find many traditional Chinese values reflected in Rotary: values of service and responsibility, of respect for family and for others. Sometimes I call Confucius the world's first Rotarian, because even though he died 2,500 years before Rotary was founded, his ideas are very much Rotary ideas. And one of the things he said was: "It is better to light a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness."

I think that one line sums up the way we in Rotary approach the problems of the world. There is so much difficulty. There are so many people who need help. Many people look at this and say, "There is nothing I can do." So they do nothing – and nothing changes.

But this is not the Rotary way. The Rotary way is to light a candle. I light one candle, you light one candle – and so do 1.2 million other Rotarians. Together, we can do so much more than we could ever do alone. Together, we can light up the world.

In 2014-15, I am asking each of you to light your own Rotary candle – and Light Up Rotary together.
