What's Happening?
On Sunday, October 14th, our Rotary Club purchased and served the weekly community dinner at Emmaus House in Lake Zurich.  Thanks to Adam Keppel for organizing the event.  Thanks to Jim Dopler, George Dorner, Lyle Staab, and Greg Cardelli and his family for volunteering at the event.  It was our pleasure to serve fresh garden salad, fried chicken, vegetables, potato salad, and dessert..  Coffee and lemonade were also provided.  There was also quite a bit of fried chicken left over to send home with our clients for another meal.  After the dinner, clients could participate in the Sunday evening food pantry..  Thanks also to those core volunteers from Emmaus House that have been serving the community for nineteen years.

A ShelterBox HERO is a Rotary Club who has committed to making an ongoing impact in worldwide disaster response by pledging to support ShelterBox annually for three consecutive years.

This elite group has identified the continuing need to prepare for and immediately respond to the worst day ever.

Natural and other disasters are inevitable and frequent, and the need is continuous. Annual donations help ShelterBox stay prepared for upcoming disasters in several ways. It takes time for items to be purchased or manufactured before being packed into the ShelterBoxes and, by pre-packing aid, it is ready to go when needed.

Also, annual donations allow ShelterBox to pre-position aid in or near countries where we respond often, resulting in a more efficient and timely response.

Gifts via the HERO program will be designated to Deployment Essentials, directly and quickly aiding families in need.


Our first annual Rotary Oktoberfest is next Saturday, 10/6/18, from Noon to 10 PM at Buffalo Creek Brewing in down town Long Grove.  The Village Tavern will be cooking up brats and sauerkraut, and German potato salad.  Hope you're getting hungry!  This is a tented event so please come jion us rain or shine.  We've got great music, great food, and of course, great craft beer.  Tickets are $15 at the door.
The Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer, and Hawthorn Woods donated this beautiful gift basket to the Emmaus House fundraiser at Lake Zurich's "Rock the Block" event on September 8th.  Club member Jim Dopler volunteered more than 40 hours to help the charity raise more than $3,000 over the past two weeks.  The gift basket contained three bottles of wine, 4 wine glasses, a Rotary International Cookbook, two Rotary Club coffee mugs, and restaurant gift certificates to Enzo & Lucia in Long Grove, Oregano's in Hawthorn Woods, and Tsukasa in Kildeer.  The weather for "Rock the Block" was pleasant, although a bit windy.  The crowd estimate was more than 8,000.  The event included three live bands and numerouse food trucks.  Emmaus House also collected more than 500 pounds of non-perishable food items at the event to stock the shelves of their Sunday night food pantry at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Lake Zurich.  The Club also sponsors the Emmaus House Sunday evening community dinner one or two times each year.  
The Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer, and Hawthorn Woods honored local Veterans this past holiday weekend by sponsoring four of them to attend the “2018 Rotary Road Trip to Miller Park”, on Labor Day, September 3rd
The program was coordinated by Rotary District 6440 and included a tail gate party, and a game between the Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the One World Medical Foundation – a 501(C)3 organization supporting PTSD, TBI and Moral Injury research and treatment for our United States Military Veterans.
The tail gate party included a full spread hosted by Saz’s Catering with live entertainment featuring MELLENCOUGAR .
Dear Long Grove Rotary Club,
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.  This is the Scout Law; the "words to live by" that we teach our Scouts.
Thank you for your support!  It's through the generosity of friends like you that we continue to teach these words to the young people in our community.  Scouting prepares young people to serve, to lead, and to be Prepared, For Life.
Dear Rotarians:
We, the Northwest Suburban Interfaith Council, just finished our 5K "i walk" to stamp out community hunger event.  This was a great event for our communities in that we raised over $7,200 which will be split among four local food pantries.
We want to thank you for your generous contribution and for the service you and all Rotarians give back to our communities and to the world..
Thanks to Marilyn Dopler and Don Biciste for donating books to fill our three Little Free Libraries in Lake Zurich and Hawthorn Woods.  Marilyn donated over 100 hard cover  novels and Don donated an assortment of novels and travel books.
