*****We are grateful that American Airlines has decided that O'Hare Rotary Club will be one of four agencies that will receive Airline Surplus items from their recent logo change. Before the holidays Jack Ranttila and his crew from Prospect Air and members Rolo Dace, Bobby Jensen, Frank Holthouse, Larry Fritz and Ed Jacob transported and unloaded the second truckful of items into our Grand Ave. warehouse facility. Thanks for your help! So far we have donated to "The Kid's Pantry" in Mt. Prospect, "My Joyful Heart" in Mokena, and Fourth Presbyterian "Chicago Lights" Shelter in downtown Chicago. We will keep you informed as to our recipients – keeping more folks a little warmer this winter!
