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.
On November 7, 2017, District Governor Donald Brewer presented the Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods with a Certificate honoring it's 100% member participation in donations for the 2016-2017 Rotary Year, to the Rotary Foundation.  Congratulations to all Club members for their continuing generosity to this effort.
Thanks to Lyle Staab for leading the 2017 Youth Assembly at Harper College
this past Saturday.  Thanks also to Jim Dopler, Ross Spencer and Greg Cardelli
for helping out with other tasks.  Jim was on hand to answer questions about
Little Free Libraries, Ross set up a table on Shelter Box, and Greg taped
the presentations for future reference.
On Tuesday, October 24, Past District Governor Rick Rivkin stopped by our morning meeting to present our Club with the Rotary President's Citation for 2016-2017.  This award is presented annually to a small minority of Clubs in our District (6440) that meet predetermined criteria for fundraising, membership, and volunteer activities.
On Saturday morning, 10/28/17, our Club will meet for their semi-annual Adopt-A-Highway cleanup.  Members will meet at the Historic Long Grove Community Church at 8 AM, then proceed over to Route 83 in Long Grove.  The weather is expected to be nice, although cool.  Bring a sweater or jacket and join in on the fun.  You never know what kind of treasures we may turn up.
