Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl presented John Kenny, President of Rotary International, the Key to the City of Evanston during RI's Board of Directors meeting on January 28. Rotary International moved to its Evanston headquarters on Sherman Avenue in 1987, and the City of Evanston has welcomed its commitment to the community ever since.
"It is indeed an honor to have the international headquarters of the Rotary located right here in Evanston," said Mayor Tisdahl. "They are an important part of our community and I applaud them for their commitment to the city, not just for having moved here but also for voluntarily paying taxes as a non-profit organization. I wish them nothing but success with all their incredible work they do around the world."
