Rotary Glen Ellyn Club Christmas Gift Wrap project.
Each member of the club chooses one or several children to purchase gifts for. Then a $25 gift card is included from a matching grant by Rotary District 6440. We gift about 50 children each year. This is one of your enjoyable social activities. We thank Wintrust Wealth Management and Glen Ellyn Bank & Trust and their staff for helping those of us "wrap" challenged with complete our mission.

The Generational Shift: Navigating a Way Forward



Millennials are causing quite a stir in the workplace. As 75% of the workforce by 2025, they are here at 88 million strong. This coupled with the fact that only 18% of Millennials plan on staying with their current organization over the long term, highlights the importance of establishing a bridge-building plan for organizations with the greatest potential in leveraging the current multi-generational workforce. An organization with the ability and agility to adapt yet maintain integral parts of its DNA is essential to retain top quality Millennials that work with other generations and continue to build a sustainable organization that withstands this generational transition. With Millennial turnover costing the U.S. economy $30.5 billion every year, these factors become critical to an organization’s ability to thrive and innovate.

When you give $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Foundation grant. To recognize someone else as a Paul Harris Fellow, you can give that amount in their name. This month we have eight additional Paul Harris Fellows. Several of the members represented here are multiple Paul Harris Fellows.
The culmination of a job well done! The collaboration of the Glen Ellyn Rotary Club, Rotary District 6440 matching grant, and the donors of the Ryall YMCA in Glen Ellyn provided this pavilion and the necessary Tables and Adirondack chairs to facilitate 50 more children of the summer camps at the YMCA.

What is this important event? The culmination of one of our goals, to provide deserving students who have good educational careers to this point, show promise as leaders and having a financial need to go on to higher education. These students from Glenbard West and Glenbard South have shown these qualifications. 
Three old timers got together with hundreds of other dedicated Rotarians at the District 6440 Annual Conference at Blue Harbour, Sheboygan WI. Every time we get together we feel the oneness of the Rotary family and the welcomeness of those here and abroad helping those in need. We were awed by the generosity, ability and virtue of the those that shared their stories with us over the weekend.
Achievers, yes we have them! They are special young students form Glenbard South and West. We recognize their special abilities and how they have exercised their potential to their fullest.
We have the finest students to be found anywhere. Please, help us congratulate them on a job well done.
