Welcome to a new Rotary Year!
As you all know, we were dark last week as we transitioned to a new Rotary Year.
This week our noon meeting is back and we will officially welcome our new President, Arthur. Please join us to hear Arthur's vision for the coming months.
We have an announcement (below) from Win for Flyin' B. We have also decided this week to include detailed Community Service notes as a way of updating members on all of the work being done by our club under this committee. Thank you to everyone who helps with their projects; this is the biggest area of involvement in our club in terms of time spent.
For new members, please review the individual projects below to see what might be of interest to you. Please do not be shy - reach out to the contact indicated with each activity and feel free to try new things. This is the best way to begin to feel like a Rotarian... by doing good work in the community.

And, a gentle reminder to everyone, please wear your Rotary "gear" when you are out and about. We want to be seen doing what we do!
1) For Flyin' B members:

The next meeting is this Thursday from 4-5 in the Ridge Classroom. The guest speaker will also be our new President, Arthur Cone III.  Quarterly dues of $60 are also due. The easiest way to pay is by check, delivered to our treasurer, Bill Butler, at the meeting. If it is more convenient, Bill will send an invoice and you can pay by mail.
2) From Terre Cone, we have extended notes this week.
Since there are not a lot of other announcements, we have decided to share more details from Community Service this week to bring everyone up to speed.

We will resume our regularly scheduled volunteer day on Wednesday, August 21 st. Claudia has shared a link for “Trauma Training” for members who volunteer. This is a 45-minute, informative video, which is beneficial to those interested in serving at IFCS in the future. Debby shared their desperate need for funds to purchase food products. Our Foundation may make a generous donation, soon. In the interim, please consider dropping off your donations of food, and gently used books for small children to read.

Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world?

Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group who share your drive to give back.

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting.
