Rotary and Rotarians "rocked" the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce Installation Dinner. The Arlington Heights Noon Rotary Club took home the award for Not-for-Profit of the Year. Rotarian Mike Clements and Clementi's won the Business of the Year award and Neil Scheufler was honored as the volunteer of the year! Outgoing president (and Rotarian) Jim Bertucci shared highlights of his year; past president (and Rotarian) Sue Duchek swore in new president (and soon to be reactivated Rotarian) Amy Philpott.
Rotary brings together business and community leaders to exchange ideas and take actions to solve problems and improve communities. Looking around at the dinner, seeing all of the Rotarians in attendance it was clear to see that that is exactly what is happening here in Arlington Heights!

She turned over some of her time to Nick Pecora to introduce 4 guests today, including two from the Arlington Evening Club, ________ and _________. Our other guests were _______________ and _______________.
Lost your glasses ? Jim Thomson must have been serving “the good stuff” at the recent Festivus party, because someone apparently got cured and no longer needed their glasses ! Some gold-rimmed glasses in a case were left at Jim’s. Contact him if they are yours.
Birthdays were announced by Chairman of our "House Birthday Committee", Bill Mahoney. Our four celebrants were Jon Ridler, joining in 2005, sponsored by Ken Alger; Mike Sweeney, 2012, by Mike Anthony; Rich Morton, 2012, by Will Beiersdorf; and Lynn Jensen, 2005, by Scott Davis. Said Lynn, “Like many new Rotarians, my sponsor talked me in to being in charge of something back then…he and I not knowing what we were in for…now I’m in charge of Administration again, and I know what I’m doing this time !” Congrats and thanks to our Birthday Rotarians, and their sponsors! And yes, Lynn, you indeed know what you’re doing…you’re making Scott proud.
Fine Fine Master Joe Musolino gave us a chance to be happy, and quizzed us on Da Bear's. Ron Crawford passed along a $50 donation made for a bike tuned up through the bike program. Bob Paddock was happy about a just completed visit with relatives in Norway, happy that a company tornado drill went well, and puzzled that staff listened more to this than to what he normally says ! Will Beiersdorf was happy about the special award Salute had won (ask Wil for more details). Jim Bertucci was especially happy about his son graduating with manga cum laude with three majors from Loyola, and having a job in Rome representing the university. Congratulations All !
