Join us this Friday, when a Special Olympics participant will speak to the Lake Zurich Rotary about how positively the Games have impacted her life.  Clair Grothe, who has won awards in basketball, track & field and floor hockey, is a specially trained Messenger who speaks to groups around the area about Special Olympics.  She will be joined by Katelin Sheppard, Region B Manager of Sports.
 
Members and guests will also be able to volunteer for the event the Rotary Club manages at the Special Olympics Spring Games, the baseball and tennis ball throw.  The Games take place on Sunday May 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Volunteers are needed to register participants, manage the throw lanes and give awards.
 
They will speak at the Friday March 9 meeting at 12:15 at the Foglia YMCA, 1025 N. Old McHenry Rd., Lake Zurich.
