Service Above Self- Locally and Internationally
August 12, 2022-  Introducing our very attractive and functional bike rack located at Lake Arlington along the bike/walking track. Thanks to our friends and fellow Rotary Club members at the Arlington Heights Park District for allowing us to place the bike rack on their property and installing it for us.
July 28, 2022.  Rotarians and family members rolled up their sleeves and worked together to clean-up, organize, and "refurbish" the Miner School Greenhouse.  The greenhouse which in past years has been used by NSSEO students to learn about agriculture and related vocational skills had fallen into disrepair.   Joy Borkowski who runs the NSSEO gardening program was very pleased with the results, saying  "I cannot thank you guys enough for your hard work today and all of the volunteers! It was so fast! Looking forward to watching the greenhouse get a new lease on life."   To see more pictures, click here.
July 17,2022-  In partnership with the Rotary Club of Pursat and Sustainable Cambodia, we provided latrines, water filters, and a rooftop rainwater harvesting tank for families living in Kean Village in the Pursat province of Cambodia. Our club contributed the funding, while Sustainable Cambodia and the Pursat Rotary Club handled the installation and education on the importance and use of the water filters and latrines.  To view the full report on this project.  Click here.
July 3, 2022- Thanks to the efforts and leadership of John Kent, we've rented 8 community garden plots and we're growing vegetables to donate to local food pantries.  Garden "maintenance days" are Monday and Thursday.  If you'd like to help out, contact John for more information and details.  
June 30, 2022.  Donations to the Food Pantry typically drop off during the summer months, so we do three summer food "shops."   This was our first one of the summer.  The next one is coming up on July 20.  Thanks to Kari Koebernick for leading this initiative.
 
Club News
 
September 23, 2022.   Kudos to everyone who helped with our first (and hopefully not last) Autumn Harvest Dinner Party.  Formerly known as "the Steak Fry" this event has gone through several iterations in recent years, but this year was exceptional.  John Kent stepped up to be the organizer and Kate Kent provided the food which was visually outstanding and tasted even better.  John Koziol entertained us, while raising funds for polio plus, Joe Musolino tended bar, and Wendy Davis once again hosted us in her beautiful backyard and the rest of us had fun.  If you missed it, you missed a great evening of food, fun, and fellowship.  Click here to see more pictures.
September 15, 2022  It was a perfect day for the 30th Annual Arlington Classic Golf Outing.  Held in partnership with Special Leisure Services Foundation, this year's outing raised over $26,000.  In addition to help fund Rotary's projects in the community,  the funds raised will support programs that benefit individuals with disabilities through NWSRA (Northwest Special Recreation Association).  Thanks to everyone who helped to make this a successful event:  our committee representatives, sponsors, volunteers, and participants!
May 22, 2022-  At the 6440 District Conference, District Membership Chair Angela Walker recognized the three district clubs that added the most new members this year.  Our club, which has added 14 new members so far  was one of three clubs honored.   Shown above, President Betsy Kmiecik accepting our award.
