What's Happening?
.. 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.
Thanks to our Little Free Library librarian, Marilyn Dopler, for checking all three LFLs and adding some more books to the mix.  Thanks also to Sara Knight for donating more books.  Marilyn was surprised to see a "Thank You" note from one of our young patrons at the LFL at the YMCA in Lake Zurich.
Paul Keenon, member of the Rotary Club of Glen Ellyn, gave us plenty to think about with his excellent presentation about his many experiences while working to aid refugees and others caught between governments. While sharing statistics, photos, and personal experiences he gave us insights into the difficulties faced by those folks, governments faced with thorny problems of how to deal with this problem, and the activities of NGOs such as the one he has worked with in several settings. Most of Paul's presentation focused on his own experiences at Moira Base, a former military base now the stopping place for the steady flow of humanity trying to reach Europe through from just under five miles away in Turkey. Many have drowned or otherwise been exploited and human trafficking is rife. One had to admire Paul's enthusiasm and his willingness to be at risk himself while pursuing this example of Service Above Self.
 
 
On December 15th, the Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods awarded founding Club member, Bill Ferreira, and his wife Pam, a special award for their exceptional fundraising efforts towards Rotary International’s “End Polio Now” program.
 
Seven years ago, Pam and Bill Ferreira, came up with the idea to develop an International Cookbook.  The project began in 2010 with a District 6440 cook book, followed by the current cook book in 2013. They solicited recipes from Rotary Clubs around the world.  Over 5,000 recipes were submitted for consideration.  The resulting cookbook, “Rotarian Flavors of the World”, features over 400 recipes from Rotary districts in over 150 countries.
 
To date, Mr. Ferreira has sold approximately 7,500 cook books, and raised nearly $40,000 for Rotary’s “End Polio Now” program.  The project continues to be a worldwide fundraising project for polio eradication. For every cookbook sold at $15.00 (includes Shipping + handling in the US only), $5.00 goes to polio eradication. You may still order the cookbook by calling: 847-302-6310 or via email: rotarianflavorsworldcookbook@gmail.com
 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!
