“I consider myself a lifelong Rotary member due to the fact that Rotary gives me the opportunity to "give back to the community" while developing friendships at the same time.”
I’ve been a member of The Elgin Breakfast Rotary (EBRC) for 29 years. I served as community service chair   spearheading the Salvation Army bell ringing events and also becoming the queen of duck sales for the Elgin Boys and Girl's Club. As the international chair I wrote two international grants. One to set up a school in Pakistan, and the other to set up water tanks and pumps in a desert area of Pakistan.
I served as president of the club in 2018-19. In 2021 I wrote a district scholarship  grant which helped to send an Advocate Sherman Hospital nurse to be trained as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner which helped shed the light on human trafficking problems.
Rotary has provided me with the tools and the platform to accomplish good things in my community and around the world. I am grateful for the support of my fellow Rotarian’s and for their wholehearted efforts to support these projects. The fellowship and friendships that have developed over the years is immeasurable. If you want to get a job done well, look to EBRC to accomplish it.
I love the good that Rotary stands for and the lifelong friendships I have formed. I am a 3rd Generation Rotarian. My mother and Grandfather were Rotarians so I always knew I would join my local club and I plan on staying a member until I die.
Rotary members and our teams of volunteer friends do grass root community building all over the world. From almost ending Polio globally, building schools and digging fresh water wells in remote villages, to sending our local students to leadership training camps, the list of the good we do together is much too long to list. Whatever your passion is, you can find an outlet for it in Rotary. And you don’t have to join a club to be a part of it. You can volunteer to help out with our service projects or donate funds to help support them. Every penny you donate to our club goes directly to help those in need. We have no paid staff.
If you are interested in learning more about what we do and how you can be a part of it – feel free to reach out to me anytime at 847-815-4895.
Kindest Regards,
I grew up in Rotary!
I grew up hanging out and volunteering with my mom and dad at all sorts of events. Many of these events revolved around my dad’s Rotary club - the other club members would bring their kids so I made many friends that way. I didn’t really understand what Rotary was but I knew it stood for doing good things. It wasn’t all work! Often we had parties with food, games, and prizes. Other times it meant standing outside in the stinging cold ringing a bell to collect money for the Salvation Army. I knew that my dad was a respected member of his club and he took his responsibilities seriously. I wanted to be like that. I wanted to be part of a club that did good things and a group of people that supported each other. I could see that volunteerism was something to be proud of, a way of life. My family also chaired our local community parade. As I grew older, I took over more responsibilities with the parade. Eventually, my volunteerism led to me being honored with a Lifetime Volunteer Award from the Village of Algonquin. Later, in high-school I received more volunteer & citizenship awards. All those efforts built a strong resume with great letters of recommendation that recently helped me get into the
university of my choice and their pre-med program. Volunteerism has brought great joy to my life. I plan on staying involved in Rotary no matter where I am living and one day I will join a club.
I love being a member of the Breakfast Rotary Club. Great group of people who care about impacting lives in Elgin. If you want to get involved, its a lot easier than doing an Ironman so what are you waiting for!
I was ASKED to join Rotary by a friend when I was in my late 20’s   He said dad you build your career and network you need to start with Rotary. He could not have been more RIGHT.  Since joining Rotary and meeting most of my Lifelong Friends, my network has grown, my opportunities for leadership training and service have been grown, my ability to impact my Community has grown and I could not think of a life without Rotary. Rotary has provided me and my family and friends avenues of service, student exchanges, and leadership development that are very life fulfilling.
