Service Above Self- Locally and Internationally
March 9, 2023-   The threat of snow didn't stop us from serving our quarterly dinner at the Guest House.  Under the direction of "Master Chef" Frankiewicz, we prepared and treated the veterans, and other medical guests to a feast of shrimp cocktail, teriyaki salmon, twice baked potatoes and flourless chocolate cake.  AND we held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new double oven that the Guest House purchased with our community grant award.  In between cooking chores, we had an opportunity to visit and chat with our dinner "guests" who all raved about the food. 
February 25, 2023   We partnered once again this year with Arlington Cares for the Share the Love Food Drive.  Held outside the Vail Street Market Jewel, Arlington Heights Rotarians were on hand to give shoppers suggestions for food items needed by the Wheeling Township Food Pantry and collect donations as shoppers left the store.  It is always wonderful to see how ready everyone is help out their neighbors at this event.
February 23, 2023   Two Arlington Heights Rotarians joined a group of 14 other Rotarians and volunteers in a joint District 6440/6450 service trip to Kabale, Uganda.  While there, they worked with Rotaractors from the Rotaract Club of Kampala South to teach classes at the Nyakijumba Primary School, and help with the construction of a new building When completed, the new buildidng will double the number of students that can be served..  While there, there was an opportunity to attend a meeting of the local Rotary Club,  exchange flags, and engage in fellowship with fellow Rotarians.
February 24, 2023   Youth Services Chairman John Kent announced that four "Global Awareness" grants will be awarded to area high schools.  The grants were created and funded to support teachers and local school clubs in the creation and promotion of programs that support language immersion, cultural awareness and global awareness.  Grant recipients are:
  • John Hersey High School:
    •  Asian Student Association Club.  The grant will be used to help fund events and activities celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander month in May 2023.
    • Culture week and culture show highlighting the various cultures present at Hersey via performance.  The show will be held April  21st and is open to all Hersey students.
  • Prospect High School
    •  French Exchange Program
    •  Italian Exchange Program.  The Prospect High School grants will help provide a scholarship for a family in need of financial support to participate in Prospect's French and Italian Exchange Programs.  Participants in these programs have the opportunity to host a native French/Italian speaking student here and live with a native speaking host family abroad for 10 days.
Feb. 7, 2023   Rotarian Dr. Maggie Albert was assisted by fellow Rotarians Wendy Davis and Mike Driskell at today's vision screening clinic at Virginia Lake School.  

In 2021, we adopted a new vision:  Service Above Self- Locally and Internationally.  While there are sure to be oversights,  this is a list of how we spent our time, talent, and resources in support of this vision in 2022:
