Mayor Craig B. Johnson and the Village Board surprised Elk Grove Rotary President Kitty Weiner and members of the club with a huge Banner naming the area Rotary Green.  Oh and did I mention this was in front of 20,000 people just prior the the Villages Mid Summer Classic Concert Series which included Foreigner.  This was an incredible honor to name the area Rotary Green .  This is the same area that the Elk Grove Rotary Club has held the annual Rotary Fest for many years.  The Rotary Club has always been very active with in the community contributing back thousands of dollars every year.  (picture by Emil Schiavo)

William "Billy" Beaupre recently dominated a paper airplane competition held at the weekly luncheon.  The competition involved the engineering and building of an aircraft using a simple 8.5" by 11" piece of copy paper.  Several Rotarians attempted the crucial flights for victory with varying out comes.  Some took flight for short distances and some actually went backwards.  The final participant, Billy, stood strong and launched his perfectly engineered aircraft across the entire room for victory.  The entire crowd which by this time has swarmed to quite a few was in complete  amazement.

President Kitty Weiner presents Shelley Welch Sr. Manager of Community Resources with Wings with a small token of our appreciation for her local presentation at the clubs luncheon.  Wings is a wonderful organization which provides housing, integrated services, education and advocacy to end domestic violence.  In the year 2015 Wings provided 70,000 nights of shelter as well as services to over 2,800 women in children.  Wings is always looking for donations of items if interested view the attached link  

It was a beautiful summer evening and the crowd of 20,000 just enjoyed an incredible Foreigner concert which was part of the Villages Mid Summer Classic Concert series. There was one blue Camaro and six keys.  The first five keys did not work and then finally the last key held by Dean Jalovec started the brand new 2016 Chevy Camaro and the 20,000 people went crazy.  There you have it after one year of selling tickets to raise funds for the Rotary Club and other local charities the winner of the raffle is Dean Jalovec.  Congratulations Dean and thanks to everyone who bought tickets and supported so many of the local charities.

At the conclusion of the Peter Cetera concert held at the RotaryFest grounds, the six finalists were selected for the 2016 Camaro Raffle:
  • Bill Norwood
  • Kathy Quatman
  • Petra Erlewein
  • Stephen Grabowski
  • Orazio Miro
  • Dean Jalovec
Each will receive $600, and one will win the 2016 Camaro donated by Castle Chevrolet on July 17 at the conclusion of the Foreigner concert.

Thank you, President Donna Bartoli for a great year in leadership.  We welcome President Weiner as our new 2016-2017 Club President. 

Congratulations to Dave Bandel!!  Awarded Rotarian of the Year by Club President Donna Bartoli.

Grant survey shows solid support for new model
More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year. The results will help us improve the grant process and learn what impact the Foundation's global grants have on our areas of focus.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
