2021 - 2022 Installation Dinner
Rich Schoeneman, Tom Zengeler, Kevin Stevens
Our club's annual installation dinner was held Wednesday, June 30th, at the home of outgoing President Tom Zengeler. This traditional changing-of-the-guard was once again presented with good friendship and humor. President Zengeler's closing remarks highlighted the club's successful fundraising efforts and continued commitment to service in the community during the pandemic. Tom stated he was particularly proud of the Governor's Challenge Award, received by the club during his term.

Incoming President Rich Schoeneman thanked Tom and last year's board for their service. Rich remarked that the club is built on 'Doing' and invited members to spread the good word of what the club is doing in order to widen our sphere of influence, to grow our membership, and positively touch more people in our community and throughout the world.

Tom Zengeler announced the Libertyville Sunrise Rotary Rotarian of the Year, Jon Robb. Jon was recognized for his significant contributions to the Wine Tasting Fundraiser, in which he exemplified Rotary's motto "Service Above Self".
