The Rotary Club of McHenry welcomed Carl Vallianatos, Assistant Principal at McHenry High School-West Campus, to its regular Thursday noon meeting, January 9th, at the Polish Legion of American Veterans Post on North Park Street in McHenry. 

Carl, and Geri Condon, spoke of ways in which local businesses can help raise awareness of the “Character Counts Coalition” special thrust of “Social Norming.”  Geri recounted the six foundations of character the group promotes: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.   The program involves a billboard of Visible Outdoor Ads at Front Street and Bull Valley Road in McHenry.  Photo:  Left to right, Rotarian Terry Fitzgibbons, Carl Vallianatos, Geri Condon, and Mayor Sue Low.
