Rotary Club of Puerto Barrios, Izabal, Guatemala
Project: Guatemalan Tomorrow Fund

Steve Dudenhoefer founded the Guatemalan Tomorrow Fund and Asociación Ak’ Tenamit 33 years ago, after selling his business in the US and moving to Guatemala to serve as a full-time volunteer accompanying rural Indigenous Central American communities in their sustainable development processes.

President Shawn Collins presented the Officer of the Year Award to Buffalo Grove police Investigator Crystal Dibble at a Village meeting.  The annual honor is awarded to an officer who has displayed a strong work ethic, integrity and commitment to the residents of the village. 
Investigator Dibble was recognized for her work on several significant cases last year, including financial crimes and exploitation of the elderly, sexual assault investigations and commercial burglary. She also is responsible for maintaining evidence technician supplies and keeping the evidence processing area in order.  Our Rotary Club will donate $500 in Dibble’s name, with $250 going to the Rotary Foundation and the remainder to the charity of her choosing.

Officer Gabriel Augustyniak also received special commendation. He led the department in DUI arrests for the second year in a row and was among the department’s leaders in traffic law enforcement. 


Our club established the Bill Reid Community Service Award in 2001 to perpetuate the legacy of Bill Reid, a long-time Village trustee and a founding member of the Rotary Club of Buffalo Grove.  This award is given out on a yearly basis to unsung heroes who have demonstrated a long-term commitment to the Buffalo Grove community, and who personify what it means to serve and inspire.

Cathy Novak, a person who has tirelessly worked on behalf of our community, is the 2023 recipient of this award.
