Last Week's Meeting
Last week two grant recipients told us about the important services that they provide to our community.  Cathy Meyers from St. Vincent de Paul Society, explained that their charity provides immediate help of the poor and the needy. They sponsor food collection for the parish food pantry. Where there is a need, they help pay portions of rent, electric, and/or heating bills. They are financed from donations to the poor boxes at the church entrances, and by individual donations. They also sponsor a Christmas gift program.  Shelley Welch from WINGS Program, Inc. said that the charity helps to create a society in which every domestic violence survivor has a voice and the resources to break the cycle of domestic violence.  They provide housing, integrated services, education and advocacy to end domestic violence.
Adriane and Tom had birthdays to celebrate and wanted anyone in uniform at the meeting to sing to them - which meant Bo and Shawn.  Lisa offered to direct them in song.
Our Club Member in the News
President Donald Trump visited Chicago on Monday to speak to the International Association of Police Chiefs and our club member, Steven Casstevens, is the incoming President and was in attendance as the president signed an executive order creating a commission to study the root causes of crime.  President Trump said at the conference,  "congratulations to your new incoming president, Chief Steven Casstevens.  That’s a nice name.  I like that name. . . And I hear you’re an incredible leader.  Thank you very much."  We agree.
