A Message from the President:
Have you ever wondered how you can have a positive impact in your community and around the world, all at the same time?  Look no further than the service opportunities available in the Rotary Club of Buffalo Grove.  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.
If you live or work within the Buffalo Grove area, please feel free to contact us to learn more about membership. We are very proud of our newly implemented mentoring program to support a smooth transition and collaborative environment within the club.
I am honored to serve as the 2016-17 President of our club and look forward to continuing the growth and development of the Rotary Club of Buffalo Grove. Come join us and see what Rotary means to you!
In service,

Our Rotary club had a very busy and visible role in our community's Labor Day celebration, BG Days.  We sponsored the Bingo game on Thursday night, was a sponsor for the September Stampede (a 5 and 10 k race), participated in the parade on Sunday morning, and sold duck tickets all weekend for our duck race that took place on Sunday afternoon.  It was a great weekend of fund raising and fellowship for our club!
Our exchange student this year who we jointly hosted with the Wheeling Rotary Club was Alex from Warsaw, Poland. He attended Buffalo Grove High School where he was on the varsity swim team and did very well academically.  Here he is on his last day with us.  Good luck in all that you do, Alex!
