On September 15, 2017 at Bellissimo Ristorante in Montvale, members of the Park Ridge Rotary gathered to hear a presentation by our own club member and past club President, Vladislav  Zherenovsky.  His subject was " Rotary Means Business”.
 
Our District and Club would like to attract more young members. Vlad explained that many younger potential members have a limited amount of time to devote to Rotary. “Rotary Means Business” offers an alternative.  It is designed to let more experienced members help younger professionals and business people through a networking group.  It encourages Rotarians to support the success of their fellow Rotarians by doing business with them and by referring others to them. Vlad reminded us that in 1905 Rotary originated with a group of business professionals.  Networking events are currently being scheduled and current members are encouraged to join these events.

On August 4, 2017 at Bellissimo Ristorante in Montvale, members of the Park Ridge Rotary gathered to hear a presentation by members Dan Antokal and Steve Hopper regarding progress on the 5K run scheduled for September 17 in Park Ridge.  Our partner in this fifth anniversary run to benefit Rotary scholarship funds is Halfway Hounds. Dan commented that the partnership with Halfway Hounds makes our 5K unique. He praised the committee and noted that new club members have added considerable energy, ideas and new skills, including social networking. Posters are available and Phil Wells will design the 2017 T-shirt.
 
Last year we raised $22,000 ($11,000 to Rotary), and this year our goal is $25,000.  Forms for runner registration and sponsor forms are on our website and can be downloaded. Steve noted that last year 345 people signed up to walk or run (the most ever) and we had approximately 200 sponsors.  An early bird special for runners will be in effect for the next two weeks.  Steve added that we will have Boy Scout and possibly Girl Scout assistance, particularly at mile markers to help keep runners on track.
