Pearls of the Club

The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.

  - Henry David Thoreau
Notes From the August 19th Meeting
President Paul Munk welcomed attendees and our guests. Members recited the Pledge of Allegiance and the Four Way Test.
 
Announcements:
Rosemary Heileman from the Buffalo Grove Club, described their fundraising event of a duck race sponsored by their Club. She welcomed donations from our members.
 
Jim Berardi said the Golf Outing was enjoyed by all participants: good weather, great meal and a good time together for a fundraising purpose.
 
Dale Mugler described the Club's special park bench project. This project is for providing the city with a requested bench as part of the HP150 festivities. When Dale said that 14 of our members  donated $100 each, for a total of $1400 and that one more $100 donation was needed to reach required $1500 mark, Mike Babian volunteered to be the final donor.
 
Manu Khodadad reported on donations to the Foundation. Len Tenner has now contributed a total of $9,000!  Manu also reported the total provided to the Rotary Foundation of our Club - over a million dollars!
 
Bill Pigati said he has two busboys working for him who are HPHS Interact Club members, and they have benefited a great deal from their membership.

The Day's Program
Program Chair Dick Stone introduced Sarah Pressly from "Feed My Starving Children" (FMSC) which is located in Libertyville. It is a Christian charitable organization. They provide packets of food for children in countries around the world, including Haiti, Nicaragua, the Philippines, Uganda, Central and South America, Southeast Asia, North Korea, Ukraine, Sudan and Venezuela.
 
The bags of food for one meal are packed with four items: rice, vegetable protein with soy, dried vegetables and a vitamin powder. She said 91% of the donations are used for charity alone. She indicated that 99.7% of the food packed gets to its destination. All packing is done by volunteers, which included quite a few of our Club members as participants at some point in the past. She said 364 million meals were packed last year -  all food for the packing having been donated. To feed a child one meal daily for the entire year costs $88.
 
FMSC has a "marketplace' where they sell products made in the countries served. The profits go back to those who made the products. The program raises about $400K a year.
