Thank You to Everyone Who Supported The Arlington Classic
Some things looked a little different this year,  (scheduled tee times, boxed lunches, and of course masks and social distancing) but thanks to Special Leisure Services Foundation (SLSF), generous sponsors, volunteers, and lots of golfers COVID did not stop us.   We held a successful golf outing at Arlington Lakes on Thursday, September 10th.  Funds raised are shared between SLSF and the Arlington Heights Rotary Club and will be used to support projects such as food pantry support.  For more pictures of the event, click here.

Rotarians are People of Action

July 21, 2020-  During the month of June, the Wheeling  Towhship Food Pantry had a record number of 568 visits feeding 1,575 people.  A shout-out  to Kari Koebernick, who with help from  Rotarians Chuck Frankiewicz, Betsy Kmiecik, and Linda Borton, coordinated a shopping trip to buy and deliver non-perishable items from the Food Pantry's wish list.  
 
June 19, 2020-  Rotarian Ron Crawford and John Amling have refurbished and donated over 1000 bicycles to people in need here in the Northwest suburbs and throughout the Chicagoland area.   They are pictured above with their most recent donation in Maywood.  Bikes are in such high demand right now, that many recipients are willing to make donations for them which John and Ron are donating to the Rotary Club's Charitable Foundation.  
 
 
May 30, 2020- Another collaborative project by Northwest Eye Physicians (also fellow Rotarians) and AH Rotary! Volunteers worked together to provide sanitation kits to Northwest Community Hospital Covid 19 patients who can’t afford to purchase before going home.    Many thanks to Drs. Chris Wood and Adam Prickett and Karen Baker for making this happen. Rotarians are joined by hospital staff to hand off the 50 buckets.
