The new member/ World Polio Day/ Cooking Class event on Wednesday night at Dave’s Specialty Foods was a big success.  Kudos to Jason Ivy and the membership committee for organizing such a great event.  
  • Thanks to Kerry Pearson, Bob Paddock, Dave Weiner, Kris Niemann and Ron Crawford who volunteered to man the Club’s Trunk or Treat Booth on Friday night.   They each received a bottle of wine (left over from the new member event) for stepping up.
  • Volunteer Registration for the Santa Run is up and running on Clubrunner.  This is an “all hands on deck” event for the club. 
  • Thanks to Mary Kendall and the members of the Rolling Meadows Interact Club who volunteered to dress in Santa gear and walk through town delivering Santa Run posters and postcards.
  • We are still collecting travel size toiletries.   There is a bin where they are collected by the greeter’s table.
What We’re Happy About This Week
Rotarians love to travel…..our happy travelers this week:  Mark Tauber returned safely from Cuba, Bob Paddock spent time up in Door County, and Karen Baker enjoyed a week in Mexico.   Bob Heller bade farewell to everyone before heading off to warmer weather.  Luis Ramirez-Alonzo launched his PR consulting firm on Monday.  Mary Jablonsky shared that 23 members have qualified for EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year) and 34 have made contributions toward this goal.  Joe Musolino was happy that the World Polio Day news release had been well received.  Marcin Bos really enjoyed the new member event.
