Last week Trustee Chair Kathryn Schubert recognized Ranny Perez and Tom Kerfoot and for their donations of $1000 to the Suburban Rotary Charitable Foundation with Charlene Tierney citations. Our local Foundation makes our scholarship program and many other projects possible.
 
As you may be aware every April our district coordinates Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp.  RYLA camp (April 6-8, 2018) is an intensive 3-day training program for High School Sophomores and Juniors that helps participants think critically about important issues and share ideas with talented peers, learn how to coordinate and lead community service projects, discuss the importance of good governance and civil society to the world, and finally, learn to think globally and explore issues that transcend national and cultural boundaries. 
 
To make the camp a success we seek students from diverse backgrounds throughout the district.  Diversity refers to any student who is interested in local and global issues and whose participation in this program would help expand and add to their current experiences and perspectives. We seek your help to spread the word about this amazing opportunity and to encourage students you believe would benefit from this experience to apply.  This year we are excited for several new activities including a tree planting with the Arbor Day Foundation, and several new engaging activities and speakers that are sure to a success.  Our District Governor Dr. Tom Cardwell has sent a letter with brochures to all the club presidents in the district, however, and I wanted to let you know that if you need more materials please feel free to email me and I will send you additional recruiting materials.

Last week Ranny Perez and Andrew Wesely served as Greeters.

to Dick and Janey Miller who were recognized as Major Donors (10,000 or more)  to the Rotary Foundation.
 
Here's what Dick had to say about their support of the Rotary Foundation, “Janey and I have observed and have been a part of many Rotary community service projects during our 50 years plus involvement with many different Rotary Clubs across the country, but have only been observers in Rotary’s worldwide projects. As such, we felt it was time we took part in providing assistance in places where our feet will never travel , and to people we will never meet. “
 
Rachel Greenhoe, Major Gifts Officer from the Rotary Foundation will be in Omaha on March 9th and 10th to visit with any Suburban Rotarian who has any questions or interest in estate planning options for the Rotary Foundation.  Call 1-847-866-3476 to arrange an appointment.    District 5650 will have a Legacy Dinner on May 17th acknowledging new donations of $10,000 or more in donations, bequests, planned giving in wills or arranging an endowed funds.   
Does your team have a duck on the track for the "Great Suburban Duck Race"?  Only a little over 4 months to "waddle" across the finish line and claim the title!   Red is in the lead so far.  Last week Lisa Neu recognized Holly Hollenbeck and Mike Fosdick with rubber duckies for bringing in new members. Thanks for growing the club! 
 
 Thanks to Bill Prout and Big John's Billiards for a fun after hours last Thursday.  Rotarians socialized, ate, drank, and played a little pool.
Come to this Thursday's meeting to hear about the tournament champions. See our Facebook page for more photos.
