Thank you to Rotary Club of Long Grove/Kildeer/Hawthorn Woods and Rotary Club of North Chicago for joining us with our fundraising efforts!!  We couldn't have done it without them! All 3 Rotary Clubs will be involved with the planning and building the Discovery Lab.
 
 
 
Shown from left to right:  Sarah Knight-President of Rotary Club Long Grove/Kildeer/Hawthorn Woods, Petra Croneigh - President of Rotary Club Lake Zurich, Judi Thode - President of Ancient Oaks Foundation and Angela Walker - President of Rotary Club of North Chicago.
 
Update on Ancient Oaks Kueschmann Kove - Our grant was approved and now we just have to wait for approval from Lake Zurich for construction to begin.  We'll keep you posted on volunteer opportunities because a hands-on component is required for our grant to be successfully completed!
Did I say WOW??!!  WOW!!  We had an amazing turnout for our Electronics Recycle Event!  THANK YOU JOHN CASPER for letting us use your location for the event!!  I know it was a bit overwhelming but you did a great job with snaking the cars in your parking lot.
 
We had close to 200 cars and took in over 4 TONS of electronics...the most they have collected yet!!   We had to close early because the trucks were full.  They will be doing home pick-ups for almost 40 names that we took and that will still be added to our event.  We are going to look at running another event in February but at a different location.  Information will be coming out soon and we will hopefully have more members come out and volunteer.
 
Thank you to Barbara, Bob, John Casper, John Croneigh, Dale, Doug, Nancy and Petra for coming out! Actually it really wasn't that cold out, sun was shining and no wind!!
 
UPDATE: The home pick-ups that Blue Star is doing this week for people who arrived after the truck was full have added about 2 tons to the haul.  A great showing for Lake Zurich!  Stay tuned -- another event will be scheduled soon.
 
 
 
 
This Friday: Business meeting.  Come hear how we spread good in the world.
 
This Sunday: We run the Special Olympics Baseball Throw/Tennis Ball Throw!
