Bartlett Rotary Foundation Call for Projects 
Bartlett Rotary has a history of using our foundation funds to make a local impact.  Past projects included the score board at Bartlett High School, a donation to the Free to Be Me Park, repairing the church bell at Emmanuel Lutheran Church (Bartlett's oldest church), and of course our latest project, the Rotary Clock in town center. 
Now is the time to consider a project our next project, and we're looking for your input.  Keep in mind that this does not have the be a project that is completed immediately or with the funds at hand.  This can be an inspirational project that we fund raise toward as well.  Pleas use the link below to submit your idea by March 31.  
The foundation will review the suggestions and bring them to the Rotary Board and then to the membership for a vote.
Chicago will host the 2030 Rotary International Convention in 2030! 
“We’re thrilled to announce today, on the anniversary of the first Rotary club meeting in 1905, that Chicago will once again host Rotary’s biggest gathering,” said the chair of Rotary’s Chicago Bid Team, Lyle Staab. “We can’t wait to show our visitors all Chicago has to offer.  We’re determined to deliver a memorable experience for the participants, and to make a difference in Chicagoland through the event.”
Rotary members and participants from around the world will gather in Chicago to connect, learn from each other and various experts, and share ideas for bringing positive, lasting change to communities across the globe. The annual Rotary convention was last held in Chicago in 2005 and was attended by approximately 40,000 participants.
 “What started with the vision of one person, our founder Chicago attorney Paul Harris, to gather professionals with diverse backgrounds to exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships and give back to their communities – quickly grew to become a global movement,” said Rotary International President Jennifer Jones. “As the birthplace of the world’s first service organization, Chicago is the ideal location for our members and participants to reflect upon and celebrate our successes, and plan for the next 125 years and beyond to improve lives and strengthen communities around the world.”
Our regular meeting is at 12:15 at Villa Olivia.  The first meeting of each month this the Rotary Board Meeting held at 11:00 am also at Villa Olivia.  **

This month's service project is support Wheaton Academy's young performers by seeing their production of Fiddler on the Roof on March 9 at 7 pm The kids in the production decided to earmark $7.00 of each ticket to go to build refugee packs.  These backs are given to those who arrive in DuPage County with virtually nothing and include basic essentials.  Bill Gabrenya is organizing the project, you can pay him directly $25.00 for your ticket or check out the email that he sent early last week for other payment details. 
Other service information, we are seeking ideas for the foundation's next big project.  Ideas can be submitted until the end of March.  
We had a request for funding from the Tri-Village Garden club to provide raised beds for their community garden that benefits the food pantries.  Will need to follow up on what kind of support they are looking for from the club. 
The Board voted to provide $250.00 for earthquake relief in Turkey and Syria.  This will be matched by the district.
