Members of the Rotary Club of Elk Grove Village recently volunteered to pack meals at Feed My Starving Children. Afterwards, club's International Committee chairperson, Brian Pfister, presented a donation to help the organization continue feeding the neediest children around the world. 
Elk Grove Rotarians participated in the Walk For Wishes by walking and donating money to the great organization.  Make a Wish Foundation grants wishes to children that are suffering from illness.  These brave children are given a chance to dream up their own incredible vacation.  Make A Wish organizes and pays for the child as well as the family.  Disney is certainly one of the children's favorite destinations.
The District administration of 6440 would like to pass along the following information to our club:

RI Convention 2030 - Chicago bid is impending and we have an extraordinary opportunity to support a Community Engagement effort. Community Engagement is now a part of the evaluation criterion, and our local districts (6450, 6440, and 6420) are making the most of it. Friday, October 21 from 7am-3pm, Rotary is renting out Pioneer Court, just north of the Apple Store on Michigan Avenue, right alongside the river, to engage the community.

 

We will set up ShelterBoxes, a table to talk about Rotary, and other Rotary materials to engage passersby. We will answer their questions and get information from them to later follow up with them as new prospective members.

 

Oh and the RI Convention 2030 committee members will “randomly” stop by that morning to see us in action and visualize what it could look like in 2030 as well. Bring your positive energy, Rotary answers, and can-do attitude to Pioneer Court! Sign up here!
