At this morning's meeting, members in attendance had the opportunity to hear Leslie Blake, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County. Leslie discussed the impact just an hour a week over lunch can make in the life of a youth.  Many have lost a parent or guardian for various reasons and are in need of  someone with whom they can spend time and to be a constant in their lives. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides this opportunity. It not only benefits the youth, but can provide the adult with a feeling of fulfillment knowing that they are making a difference in the life of an individual.
Through the generosity of several donors, they are in the process of moving into a new facility that is in need of some renovating. They will gladly accept volunteers willing to help in this endeavor. They also have an upcoming fundraiser called "Bowling For Kids' Sake."  There are various dates, times and venues to help this worthwhile cause.  Please go to their website at to learn more about opportunities to help out or support their fundraiser.
