What's Happening?
 I wanted to thank you again for the generous donation from last year.
We were able to put it towards purchasing a beautiful welcome sign
for our school in multiple languages.
We love it and the kids are very proud of it!

On 12/02/2017, your kettle shift raised 485.10 for Salvation Army programs and services.

Every dollar you helped collect will fuel important services for individuals and families in crisis, through basic needs programs, disaster relief efforts, and so much more. Visit salvationarmy.orgto read about the help available in your community.

We hope you’ll consider 
another shift and share the idea of bell ringing with family and friends who are looking for volunteer opportunities.

Thank you for your gift of time to The Salvation Army.

Merry Christmas and God bless you,
Director of Volunteer Services

Arlington Heights dentist, Dr. H. Edward Vallely, and his associate, Dr. Sophia Teckle, at Associates for General Dentistry, recently offered free dental care to military veterans.  Through the Illinois Dental Salute program, Illinois veterans were eligible to receive a complimentary dental exam at participating dental offices in their area on November 10th..   Dentists participating in the program provided treatment for free, focusing on cleanings, restorations and extractions.  Dr. Vallely’s office treated eight veterans.  Dr. Vallely indicated “it was an honor to be able to help out these brave men and women with their dental needs”.  Dr. Teckle is pictured treating a patient.
The Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods has Holiday spirit, even if it was sunny and 50 degrees out on Saturday.  Jim Dopler, Ryan Biirch and Adam Keppel braved the elements to ring the bells for donations on behalf of the Salvation Army.  We covered the East door at Mariano's for six hours.  The change jingled as it was dropped n the kettle.  Dollar bills were folded several times over in order to fit through the narrow opening in the kettle.  This was our first year getting involved in fundraising for the Salvation Army.  We certainly hope it won't be our last.  The store customers were very generous.  Some made donations on the way in to the store, others on the way out.  Some customers even had their children deposit the donations.  What a great way to teach children the meaning of charity, and how to help their neighbors.
We build communities.
We bridge continents.  We serve above self.  We eradicate polio.
We cure disease.  We pump water.  We build peace.
We support youth.  We build minds.  We bring hope.
We have fun.  We are leaders.
Do you or someone you know want to be a part of our work?
We meet every Tuesday morning at 7:15 AM at Joanie’s Pizzeria in downtown Long Grove, Illinois.  Join us!
This morning I purchased and delivered 200 pounds of frozen Butterball turkeys to our friends at St. Mathews Lutheran Church in Hawthorn Woods.  Each Thanksgiving Day, they put on a fabulous Holiday Dinner for residents of Lake County in need of a holiday dinner.  This is our second year proving turkeys for the event.  Thanks to our local Aldi, in Lake Zurich, for allowing us to purchase all these turkeys in a single shopping trip, and at a great price.  Last year, the leftovers from this event were shared with a partner church in Chicago, and helped feed another 200 local residents.
The Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods was just listed in the Donor Honor Roll, in the annual report for 2016 for Shelter Box USA.  The Club has been making donations to the organization for most of it's 22 year history.  Shelter Box has provided emergency relief this past year in Haiti, Ecuador, Paraguay, Syria, Niger, Cameroon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nepal,Sri Lanka, DPRK, Philippines, and Fiji.  Thanks to Ross Spencer for his many years of service as the District 6440 representative for this very worthwhile International Relief organization.
On Tuesday, November 7, 2017, District Governor Donald Brewer presented the Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods a Certificate of Appreciation for its financial support of End Polio Now, for the 2016-2017 Rotary Year.  Thanks go out to all Club members for for fulfilling our promise to the children of the world to eradicate polio.
