President's Message
What's Happening?
We recently received the following note from Emmaus House of Hospitality in Lake Zurich:  "Emmaus House would like to thank everyone on your Rotary team  for your generous donations of food and helpfulness at the recent Community Dinner.  It is only because of groups like yours that Emmaus House can provide these benefits to our community 48 of 52 Sunday evenings each year.  Thank you, one and all, for joining hands with us to take care of the Lord's people.  Blessings.  Emmaus House of Hospitality."

We sponsor this folk group on Sunday August 28.

This year our Club tried something new to get the word out about our Club.  We sponsored a local concert as part of the Hawthorn Woods Concert in the Park series.  The event was last Friday evening from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM.  The weather was great.  The band was "Second Time Around", who played classic rock.  Thanks to Lyle Staab for setting up a tent, display table, and our Rotary feather flags to help advertise our Club.  Lyle brought his family and a number of friends with him to enjoy a large table full of goodies.  Thanks for Jon Jansky (and Jen) for introducing the band and providing the crowd a little background on our Club.  Thanks to Jim and Marilyn Dopler for manning the table during the concert.  Thanks to Sara Knight, her family and friends for coming out for the evening.  Thanks also to Amy Scholz, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation, for coordinating our sponsorship of the event with us.  The Mayor (Joe Mancino) and Chief Operating Officer (Pam Newton) were kind enough to drop by and say hello, and to thank us for getting more involved in the Village over the past year.  We all agreed to look for additional ways we could work together moving forward.  We also got to sit and watch a number of children checking out our recently installed Little Free Library.

The Riverside Foundation has facilities in both Lincolnshire and Vernon Hills.  They rebrand the Race as "Race for Riverside - 5K Run and 3K Walk".  They are providing excellent marketing of the event on their website, and have submitted articles to the local Lake Forest newspaper.  To learn more about their mission, please visit them at:

Please follow this link to the Facebook page of one of our Charities for 2016, PADS, Lake County.
Please check their listing in June, advertising their upcoming participation in our event. 

We were honored to have distinguished visitors at our meeting on July 12th.  Charter member Bill Schwartz, back from Australia and now living in Arizona, and 1998 inductee Prem Advani, who lives in Florida, were in town and joined us for breakfast.  Each gave us a few words on what they've been up to.  They were able to hear a great presentation by Ciri Stom on the efforts by her family to make a difference in memory of her sons who died of drug overdoses,  We wish luck to the Jeremy Stom Remembrance Foundation.  


Congratulations to new President Jim Dopler and his leadership team on their installation on June 28th. We're looking forward to another productive and fun filled year, working together.
