The Rotary Club of Buffalo Grove is taking applications for individuals for the Bill Reid Community Service Award.  The award is to be given to an individual whose long term community efforts have resulted in the enhancement, betterment and improved spirit of the Buffalo Grove Community.   The late Bill Reid was a long time Village Trustee and a charter member of our Rotary Club.
Thanks to all who attended the welcome party for Dylan and his host families and the other exchange students from District 6440 at the always gracious hostess Deenie's home.  Special thanks to Deenie and Jing who organized the party.

On behalf of our club, I invite you to join us for a meeting and fellowship on Thursdays, 12:15-1:30 at Lou Malnati’s, 85 S. Buffalo Grove Road, Buffalo Grove.

Our club was chartered in 1974 and has grown over 50 members strong! We are committed to the principles of Rotary International and service above self.  Some of the projects our members lend their time and talents to include Buffalo Grove Days BINGO, Rubber Duck Race and Parade; Literacy Launch at local elementary schools, Winter Food Baskets and the AK’ Tenamit missionary project in Guatemala. We also support inbound and outbound exchange students in our community, raise funds for the End Polio Now initiative and provide community grants for many deserving local organizations.  We always welcome the opportunity to have new members and volunteers join the club to strengthen our partnership with our community.

I am honored to serve as the 2018-19 President of our club and look forward to continuing the growth and development of the Rotary Club of Buffalo Grove.   If you live or work within the Buffalo Grove area, please feel free to contact us to learn more about membership.  Join us in making a difference!
In service,
