The garden grows for butterflies and as a peaceful place for staff and clients at the Children’s Advocacy Center to sit and talk or just enjoy the beauty around them.
 
It also grows contribution to the ongoing work of the Center.  The 18 bricks installed recently means $1,800 for the center.
 
These bricks form the walkway in the middle of the garden and provide a wonderful opportunity for individuals or groups to  remember someone special or honor a person or commemorate an event. 
 
  
  
  
  
  
Jeanne and Bill Kelley had the opportunity to visit with our club’s former exchange student, Audrey Lavis, while in Brussels, Belgium.  The three of them are posed in front of the most famous Belgium statue, Manneken Pies, the folk hero of Brussels.
 
Audrey sends her warm regards to our entire club.  
Brian Berg, who coordinated our club's participation in the installation of smoke detectors last May, received this note of appreciation.
 
Hi Brian,
 
I apologize for my delay; I was waiting on some additional paperwork from the Red Cross. Once again, I would like to thank the Schaumburg-Hoffman Rotary Club for participating in our smoke alarm event with the Red Cross. We were able to complete visits in 50 homes, install 110 smoke alarms, and install 38 carbon monoxide alarms on May 5th. Once again, I think we had a tremendous impact on the Schaumburg community. The Fire Department has also received a number of additional calls from residents in the area and throughout Schaumburg requesting home safety visits. Another positive impact of these events is the publicity it generates that results in additional visits for our department.
 
Please pass on my sincere thanks to your entire organization for once again participating in our event. We hope to continue to do these events on a regular basis and would be thrilled to have the Schaumburg-Hoffman Rotary Club continue to participate.

Each year the Rotary Club of Schaumburg Hoffman-Estates awards more than $20,000 in scholarships to students in Schaumburg Township who are pursuing post-secondary education.  On 25 May this year's scholarship winners were announced for four of the scholarship categories.  These scholarships are in addition to our "Fishing Well" Scholarships described in another story on this home page.  The recipients attended our regular club meeting and each one told us a littlie bit of their story.  The scholarship committees worked diligently to select these recipients from among the many applications received this year.

Saturday, 19 May was a busy day for Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Rotarians.  While some of our members were at the District 6440 Conference in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, others were busy with two different community service projects. 

One team spent their time on our first roadside clean-up of the season.  Our club is responsible for the section of Golf Road between Roselle and Plum Grove Road.  In spite of uncooperative weather, our fearless ROAD WARRIORS Brian Townsend, Brian Berg, Rosemary Justen and Jack Lucas completed the task, leaving that stretch of road in good shape for the start of a new season.

A second group of Rotarians and friends gathered at the Children’s Advocacy Center located at 640 Illinois Blvd. to do the spring clean-up and planting at our club's Healing Butterfly garden built for CAC last year.  They were joined by Mark Parr, Director of the center.  The construction and maintenance of this garden is an ongoing project of our club.  Photos from this workday may be viewed in the photo album section of this home page.

Each year the Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates awards grants to not-for-profit organizations which serve the citizens of Schaumburg and/or Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The club provides these grants in an effort to strengthen our network of support, addressing basic needs and empowering those in need in our community.  This year the Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates made grants totaling over $30,000.  Checks were presented to representatives of the selected organizations at the regular club meeting on Friday, 11 May.
