The Elk Grove Rotary has a tradition of almost thirty years of hosting a lunch for local children signed up with NWSRA and NEDSRA.  These are two special recreation organizations that give children with challenges an opportunity to get out and enjoy many different experiences.  On June 12, three hundred kids and counselors visited the Rotary Fest Grounds for a lunch donated by Tasty Catering and Dilly Bars donated by Dairy Queen of Elk Grove.  We also invited the organization Costumers with a Cause to entertain the kids.  The Kids then went on the rides for a couple of hours.  The kids look forward to this event every year and had a blast.
Happy Birthday to the Rotarians celebrating their Birthdays in June.  Pictured Below John Bourke, Brian Pfister, Bill Beaupre and Steve Pickett.  Not Pictured is Nick Olsen.
Da Fish Guy, Steve Silic was kind enough to stop by lunch and fill us in on the incredible Musky population in Busse Woods Forest Preserve.  Steve is the Cook County Forest Preserve Fish Biologist.  The Forest Preserve has been releasing an Illinois breed of Musky into the Busse Woods reservoir since 2007.  Approximately 800 12-14 inch Musky per year.  The population has thrived and there are several 40 plus Musky in the waters today.
Steve Schmidt was the guest speaker at our regular Rotary Lunch.  Steve is an Honorary Rotarian of the Club after being an active member for several years prior.  Steve is the retired Elk Grove Police Chief and is the newly elected Trustee.  Steve is extremely active in the Sister City's and is still a teacher at Harper College.
It's that time of year again and Rotary fest is fast approaching and once again the Rotary Fest Car Show will be a highlight of the event.  The Car show will take place on Saturday afternoon June 15 form 3:00 pm until 7:00 pm.  There is a $20 entry fee for cars which will go to help the Mead Jr. High and Elk Grove Town Ship Food Pantries.  Each Car entered will get a raffle ticket and a have a chance to win some great prizes including a Black Hawks Corey Crawford signed Puck.  If you do not have a car stop by have some fun and help vote for a winner.  Check out the trophies below.  There are five judges this year including Mayor Johnson, VFW, Elk Grove Rotary Club, Elk Grove High School,  and the Fan Favorite.  This is a fun event for all.  More info at elkgroverotary.com

President Bill Beaupre surprised Scholarship recipient Jack McCabe at a local McDonalds with his award.  The whole place really got a kick out of it. Congratulations Jack and Good Luck in the Future.
