Ronald McDonald House
Can you tell we had fun touring the spacious home with it's multiple stoves, washer and dryers, family rooms and even a golf green with walking paths and playground? This home for youth with cancer or other life threatening health issues is a testament not only to the McDonald company but to the donors and caring volunteers that provide for these families in need.
Do you think we could recruit Ronald to be a Rotarian?

When our program presenters join us for a meeting we like to show our gratitude. We don't give them another coffee mug or a pen, no, we do something even better! We dedicate a book at the Glen Ellyn Library in their name and ask them to.....CHECK IT OUT!
Last weeks program was the state of the Glen Ellyn Library. Program speaker and library director,Dawn Busse, doesn't have far to travel to check out her book!

Installation of Kathy Borello as President and much, much more!
Ms. Broello is now our president of the Rotary Club of Glen Ellyn deposing Past President Phil Norton. Phil's year was a fast, fun and wise acre year! His wit will never be seen at the podium again. Thank God! The Installation was performed by Past District 6440 Governor Les Sommers. Phil's local rival Stu Stone, the long time retired veteran Glen Ellyn Fire Chief, awarded Phil, who himself is the Police Chief in Glen Ellyn, an honorary Fire Man's badge as a token of his esteem or lack there of!
Where will you be at lunch Thursday (July 3, 2014)? Well I won't be seeing you at lunch because there is not a regular Rotary meeting.

If you want to come but have not signed up call Penny Belke ASAP and reserve your spot. Her cell number is 630 309-1851. Spouses or other guests are invited but the members will be billed for the cost of the dinner.
Also, if for some reason you have signed up but can't come please call Penny and cancel. We don't want to pay for extra meals. If you have signed up and don't come or cancel, you will probably be billed for the meal and I will probably eat it!
