Rotary in Action this Holiday Season
This holiday season the Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates chose two families (one living in Hoffman Estates, the other in Schaumburg) to support with gifts and Jewel gift cards. Shopping was completed last week by Nancy and Gayle (Hoffman Estates family) and Nancy, Cris and Rosemary (Schaumburg family). 
On Tuesday evening, December 6th, members gathered at the home of Nancy Redmon to wrap and package up all gifts. Kristy Ritchie organized us and provided a delicious meal for all the little elves. Attached is a photo collage of the activities.
Thanks to all the little elves: Barry & Marilyn Christian, Cris Hinososa, Rosemary & Pete Justen, Bonnie & Jim McCulla, George & Trisha Panopoulos, Nancy Redmon, Kristy Ritchie, and Jean Schlinkmann.

Terry Parke, Rotary District 6440’s 2015-2016 President of the Year
“District Governor Adams commented, “Club President Terry Parke and The Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates have impressed the heck out of me this entire year. I had numerous conversations with Terry Parke, and how I believe his club should be one of the showcase clubs in District 6440, for other clubs to learn from.
“The club met all of their club Rotary International Giving and Community involvement goals, and has ended the year with a large increase in membership (net 11) to rank in the top 2 (out of 70 clubs). Terry is employed full time at the Pathway to Adventure Council, Boy Scouts of America, yet worked with his club’s leadership team this year to insure their club was a top performer in the district.
“Additionally, for community involvement and giving, they set a new standard. Their next community goal to benefit all of our clubs and the community at large is to grow their “Fishing Well Scholarship” in partnership with other district clubs and Harper College.”
District Governor Rodney Adams and President Terry Parke recognized Terry’s leadership team, Bill Kelley, Cris Hinojosa, Steve Lamp, Eileen Higginbotham, Julie Clark, Mike Ericksen, Nancy Redmon, Stephanie Sarnoff, and Anita Forte-Scott.
Culminating the evening’s festivities, Terry Parke passed the club’s gavel to the 2016-2017 President Bill Kelley who was installed by incoming District Governor Rick Rivkin. Also installed was Bill Kelley’s leadership team, Steve Lamp, Cris Hinojosa, John Curry, Nancy Redmon, Eileen Higginbotham, Don Crocket, Patricia Groenewold, Gil Kerbashian, and Terry Parke.
