Members of the Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates participated in the National Night Out event held at the Hoffman Estates Police Station on Tuesday evening, August 6th.
 
Summer time meant time for Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Wile e Coyote, Road Runner, Daffy Duck and all their friends to visit the Schaumburg Township Library.
The Rotarians of the Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates club helped sponsor the amazing 10 week summer program, Chuck Jones Summer for Creativity, at the Schaumburg Township Library, which ran from June 1 - Aug. 17.  This interactive experience for all ages was brought to Schaumburg Township in large part by BackYard Experience and the Chicagoland Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, with support from a limited number of other sponsors, including our club.  Participants were able to earn badges by reading and completing activities while appreciating the art behind characters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.  It is estimated that more than 120,000 people viewed and experienced the exhibit during its time at the library.  

Dear Rotary Club of Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates,

 

Hello, my name is Bridget Downing. I am studying to be a nurse at Harper College, I am in my first semester here. I am a divorced single mother with two children, I work part-time as a CNA for a local home health care agency, and I am a full time student here at Harper.

 

Thank you so much for this opportunity! I have dreamed of being a nurse for almost 7 years now, and with your donation I am now able to do just that. I couldn’t believe that I had been selected! I told everyone I knew I had gotten a scholarship to be a nurse. Thank you for believing in me and giving me this opportunity.

 

This scholarship is helping to pay for some of the mandatory testing workshops I attend so I am well prepared upon graduation to take the NCLEX and become an RN. It will also help to cover the cost of material such as my nursing supplies kit, uniforms, and clinical supplies, and my classes, which run at double tuition.

 

I chose to get my nursing degree at Harper as opposed to other schools because they are one of the few accredited nursing colleges that is adorable for students, and all hospitals I have spoken with about Harper speak very highly of the students that are attending, or have graduated from the nursing program.

 

Obtaining this scholarship has made me feel like someone actually believes that I can be an amazing nurse and deserving of the opportunity to obtain the education and realize my dream.

 

Thank you,

Bridget Downing

Early June saw Rotarians and their families at work on the Spring Clean-up of the Healing Butterfly Garden at the Children's Advocacy Center. 
 
June 22, marked the unveiling of our new moongate archway into the Healing Butterfly Garden at the CAC and Rotarians helping the CAC during their 5K run fundraiser (see message below). Club members manned a vendor booth to sell engraved pavers in the garden. 
 
Additional photos from the garden are posted in the Photo Album section on this home page.
 
The following thank you message was received by the Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates 
 
 
Thank You Schaumburg/HE Rotary 
for supporting CAC’s 5K !
 
 
Wow! We can’t believe how positive this year’s Champions for Children 5K Run/Walk was. Together we raised $24,000 and had 167 people register for the event!

The money raised from our Champions for Children 5K directly helps children in the community who have suffered physical and sexual abuse. These children find a safe place to begin healing from their past trauma once they walk through the doors of CAC.

Your support truly makes a difference. Thanks to you, the children who seek CAC’s services can find their smiles again.

We hope to see you next year!

    

On Thursday, June 27th Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Rotarians and guests gathered for the Installation of 2019-2020 Officers and to recognize the accomplishments of the year just completed.  These accomplishments include a successful Global Grant application and project kick-off, a most successful Classic fund raising event plus scholarships, grants and service projects too numerous to list.  Congratulations to Immediate Past President Steve Lamp on his year and the achievements of the club under his leadership.

 This gathering also launched a year-long celebration of the club's 50th Anniversary.  New President Pat Groenewold suggested that there may be some surprises along the way as the club recognizes it's 50-year history, while planning ahead for the future of Rotary in Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates.
