Three Club members, Ann Rest, Terry Johnson and Kathi Hemken participated in the August 10 community Feed My Starving Children MobilePack project.  The goal was to complete 300,000 meals.

Club Member Tom Kosel received his 3-time Paul Harris Fellow Award.   The Paul Harris Fellow program recognizes individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.  Thanks for your support of Rotary and way to go, Tom!!!
Despite the weather, Elmer's 2019 was a great event!  We had 110 golfers, a dozen painters and other volunteers and guests who enjoyed the silent auction and dinner at Edinburgh USA.  Thanks to everyone for their work and help in putting on this event and our annual fundraiser.
 
Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world?  Our Club members are awesome!
 
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 February 23, 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 - we meet Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at Frankie's Pizza in New Hope. 
Our Club participated in the Robbinsdale Meet & Greet on September 18:
