What's Happening?
Hey! That was fun!!
Lyle Staab Ann Marie hosted a fun and educational tour and more at the Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich on St. Patrick's Day. We had a good turnout and it was one of our more enjoyable events of the year.
Check the slide show, "Copper Fiddle Tour", over to the right to get a feeling of the fun and the tour.
Thanks to Adam Keppel for sitting our booth at the "Everything EXPO" this past Saturday.  We shared a booth with our friends at the Rotary Club of Lake Zurich.
After all, we're either already there - in the 55+ cohort - or on the way. 
Susan Dillon, Director of Adult & Senior Services for Ela Township, enthusiastically exposed us to the programs offered to "Seniors" through the township that most of us live in. Emphasizing the social side of providing activities and support services she described the many programs she oversees, including travel, exercise, meals, counseling, and topical presentations. There's something for everyone, if not now at some time in the future. This is a service that we as Rotarians should be aware of and supporting.
Consider subscribing to their informational, periodic school of events.
Dear Friends.
Thank you, on behalf of the patients and families we serve, for your generous contribution of $500 to "Be The Match".  Your gift saves lives.
Right now, thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma are in need of life saving marrow or cord blood transplant.  But many patients may face barriers that could keep them from getting the transplant they need.  Your financial gift will help more patients than ever to afford transplant, find a matching donor and have a successful transplant outcome.
Patients count of your support when they need it the most.  We thank you for your passion and dedication to saving lives.
Joy King
Executive Director

.. that there is a lot to learn about Robert Mintz's latest hobby. 
Robert educated us about the history and what goes into a premier bourbon whiskey including why it's called that and what it's like to use it as perfume. Actually, we now know how to smell the alcohol, the corn, and the rye when presented with a fine bourbon.
That was great, Robert. We hope you don't merge that with your other hobbies of skiing, driving, and golf. And next time - more samples.
Ryan Birch had scheduled Joe Clancy, Franklin Templeton Investments, to speak when the recent stock market kerfuffle wasn't even on the horizon. Or, was it? 
It was informative to hear Joe expound on related issues and to field informed questions from our own experts.
Thanks, Joe, and thanks, Ryan.
