Join BG Rotary and the Rick Kahen Commission for Residents With Disabilities for Bowling with Buddies.  There will be a Halloween theme and costumes are welcome! This fun event for residents with special needs is free to participants with bowling, food and friends!  Advance registration is required by October 6.

 

We had great attendance at the October 1st arboretum dedication at Green Lake Park where our club was recognized for our donations and our volunteer time.  The certified arboretum contains about 60 species of native trees and shrubs which are identified by tags containing QR codes that link to a data base describing the characteristics of the plant, its associations with pollinators and other wildlife and how to use it in residential landscapes.  After a tour of arboretum, our members helped with plantings and seed collecting.
      
 
 
 
Our Rotary Club had very successful events during BG Days with our Thursday night Bingo, booth sales of duck tickets, pancake breakfast to raise money for Highland Park Strong, and the duck race!  Thanks to so many who really worked hard to make it so great!  See below for the winners of our duck race!

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Buffalo Grove Home Page.  Our club consists of a variety of like-minded community and business leaders.  We devote our time to fundraising and invest these resources in a comprehensive range of projects throughout the community, as well as globally.  It is a team effort of ambitious and caring people who dedicate their time to several causes while enjoying the camaraderie and friendships of club members. 

The project engagement and funding opportunities include:

            - Food Baskets (providing food for those in need at Thanksgiving)

            - Bowling with Buddies (pairing Rotarians with residents with disabilities)

            - Reading with Rotary (reading to young students and donating books)

            - Little Free Library (providing free books to the community)

            - Youth Assembly and RYLA (youth leadership programs)

            - Environmental Projects (local green infrastructure projects)

            - Guatemala Ak’Tenamit (projects to support and build infrastructure at a school)

            - End Polio Now (funding the worldwide effort to eradicate polio)

            - Community Grants (grant applications available April/May to non-profit organizations)

            - Academic / Vocational Scholarships (applications available second semester)

            - Exchange Student programs (opportunities to go abroad and host exchange students)

Our goal for this year is to strengthen our ties with local youth. We offer exciting leadership programs for high school students and can provide opportunities to learn more about their community through collaborative efforts.  

If you have an interest in participating in one of our community projects, don’t hesitate to contact us, or feel welcome to join us for lunch.  Please email info@bgrotary.org for more information or message us through Facebook at Buffalo Grove Rotary.

Our fundraising events for children and adults with disabilities who participate in NWSRA programs would not be as successful without dedicated sponsors by our side!
Thanks to all of the club members and their family members who volunteered at the planting at Willow Stream Park on May 21st.  Our efforts resulted in the planting of 400 seedlings of native plants and 12 native shrubs - all before the rain started and scattered everyone.  Thanks to Jeff Weiss for planning and organizing the event.  Also, we received District 6440's Public Image grant that reimbursed us for one-half the cost of the hats and visors that Martha ordered.  We look official!
