The Rotary Club of Chicago -O'Hare

meets weekly at 12:00 noon

The Great Escape in Schiller Park IL

 

*****On Thursday, November 1, 2018, the Rotary Club of Chicago O'Hare will welcome Dr David L Spencer from Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Des Plaines. He will discuss “When you should consider spine surgery and the new Mazor robotic surgery.” We want you to come to hear about the latest innovations in spine surgery and to enjoy a lunch with friends!! The Foundation Board will meet at 11:00 AM at the Great Escape. See you then!

 

Do the right thing, even when no one is watching. It's called integrity.

 

*****Rotary International is requesting that we keep track of our Rotary Volunteer Hours for 2018-2019. Each week you can just jot down your information on our attendance sheet or keep track of those hours to report in a couple of weeks. Collectively we will have an amazing number!! Thanks.

 

*****It is not too early to think about the Holiday Season 2017 for three of our charities.

****Can you help?? Chicago – O'Hare Rotary Club will provide funding to My Joyful Heart to purchase winter coats for children in their winter coat program. The cost of the coats is unchanged from last year (Operation Warm) with $20 per coat, sold in packs of six for $120. Checks should be payable to: Rotary Club of Chicago-O'Hare Foundation. Any donation amount is appreciated. As an incentive, any Club member contributing $100 or more will be eligible for “Paul Harris recognition points.” Any questions, check with Ed Jacob.

****Mercy Housing Lakefront Grand Family Apartments continue to need our support. We would like to continue to give a gift to each of ten grandmothers with several gift cards to help stretch their meager budgets for the holidays. These need to be in the denomination of $25 from Target, Walmart or Walgreens. Larry Fritz, our beloved Scrip (Manna) Chair, will order for us with a financial benefit coming back to the Club. 1fritzlaw@att.net As an incentive, any Club member contributing $100 or more will be eligible for “Paul Harris recognition points.” Any questions, check with Kay Whitlock.

****In mid-November the Hines VA Hospital Veteran Stand Down will be held at Humboldt Park Armory. Each year our Club in coordination with Rotary District 6450 has gathered men's winter coats for these homeless vets. The sizes should be from Large – XXXL. No leather or ladies coats will be accepted. Please donate $$ for us to purchase coats or check out your closets or any resale shops in your neighborhood. Any questions? patranttila@gmail.com We need volunteers to help on both days. If you are available to join us, let us know. Your checks can be made out to Rotary Club of Chicago-O'Hare Foundation. As an incentive, any Club member contributing $100 or more will be eligible for “Paul Harris recognition points.” Any questions, ask Pat or Jack Ranttila.

****My Joyful Heart has asked if we could help My Joyful Santa with fulfilling of some Christmas requests from some of the children at the Grand Family Apartments. We will have a "Santa" available at either this meeting for your selection of a card with a child's name and three of their requests. Purchase any or all and place unwrapped in a gift bag with the request card attached. Santa will also add MJH's regular gift items (shampoo, lotions, toothcare items, gloves, scarf, etc.) We need to deliver our items to My Joyful Heart by the latter part of November, so bring your gifts by Thursday, November 15th. Thank you so much for supporting this project!! As an incentive, any Club member contributing $100 or more will be eligible for “Paul Harris recognition points.” Any questions, ask Pat Ranttila.

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief.

Do justly, now.

Love mercy, now.

Walk humbly, now.

You are not obligated to complete the work,

but neither are you free to abandon it.
