What's Happening?
In lieu of an Installation Dinner this Spring, the Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods will be holding a community Service Project at "Feed My Starving Children".  The event will be held on Saturday, June 29th from 2-4:30 PM, at the charities facility in Libertyville.  This great local charity coordinates the packing and distribution of food to people in developing nations.  Founded in 1987, it has reached out to more than 70 countries.  Please mark the date on your calendars, and invite everyone you know.
Thanks to Marilyn Dopler for visiting our three Little Free Libraries this weekend and filling them with more books.  The LFL at the Community Park in Hawthorn Woods was completedly empty this time around.  Our LFL at the Foglia YMCA in Lake Zurich always gets a lot of foot traffic year round.  Our LFL at the Hawthorn Woods Aquatic Center should be getting a lot more foot traffic when the pool opens at the end of this month.  Thanks again to all of our Club members who continue to donate books to this worthy community project.  We have plans to install another LFL in North Hawthorn Woods within the next several months.
Our speakers for March 19th were Paul and Michael Schweitzer of Schweitzer Farms.  They provided an excellent presentation on modern farming techniques.  Thanks to Club member Sara Knight for sharing her family business with us.  The Schweitzer Farm in Northern Illinois has been in the family for many generations.
Our 2019 Community Blood Drive was a great success, with 25 units of blood collected in just five hours.
Thanks to the Rotary Club of Lake Zurich for sharing a booth with us at the 2019 "Everything Expo" sponsored by the Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Lake Zurich Club sponsored the RILEE trailer at the event to educate the community about polio.
Participants in the event from our Club included: Greg Cardelli, Lyle Staab, Linh Bailey, Sara Knight, Jim Dopler and George Dorner. 
The event was coordinated with our local Vitalant Blood Bank by Jim Dopler.
Our 2019 Rotary Club Blood Drive is about to begin!
We'll be open from 10 AM to 3 PM at Concorde Banquets in
Kildeer., at the Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce
"Everything Expo".
We have 20 people registered to donate blood.
What a fantastic group of communities we serve, that so many
people would take the time out of their busy weekends to donate blood..
We still have room for walk ins in the afternoon, so please stop by
to donate.
We look forward to meeting everyone at our table (#5) at the Expo!
Bill Ferreira, Past District Governor, sent us this recent photo of his meeting with the Rotary Club of Bombay Central.  I'm sure we'll get an excellent report on potential international projects on his return.  Thanks, Bill, for helping our Club provide service around the world.
On March 5th, it was our pleasure to have two representatives from the Village of Kildeer as our guest speakers: Chief Village Officer, Michael Talbett and Chief of Police, Steve Balinski.  Together, they provided updates on new housing projects, new businesses coming to town, construction in the Quentin Road corridor, and local crime issues.  "Thank You" both for your service to our commuity! 
Our next community service project will be sponsoring a blood drive.  The date is Saturday, March 16.  The venue is Concorde Banquets in Kildeer, IL.  The event is the "Everything Expo" sponsored by the Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce.  The hours are 10 AM to 3 PM.  Donors will receive a coupon for a free pint of Culvers Custard.
