Foundation/Polio Plus Update
     Our goal for the Rotary International Foundation giving for the 2022-23 year is $15,000.  We have surpassed our goal and donations are still coming in.  We will have a complete list of donors in the near future.
     Donations for the 2022-23 Year must reach Rotary International by June 30th, so there is not much time to make your donation.
     Donations can be made each week by either cash, check or by credit card.  Contact Monica Glenny ( or 815-988-0913) for credit card donations or further information.
     Checks can be mailed to :

Rain Garden Weeding
Weeding of the Rain Garden
     The rain garden that our Rotary club planted perennials in last year is in need of TLC.
     If you have the time and strength, we will be weeding and possibly mulching that garden Thursday June 22nd following our regular weekly meeting.
     Please wear appropriate clothing and bring any hand tools that you prefer for weed removal. Also, provide your own water/beverage. Working gloves will be provided for those needing any.
     Our rain date, pun not intended, is the following Thursday, June 29th.

June 29th Program
     Our annual tradition of the Order of the Shelf will continue this year with Roast Master Paul Logli leading the festivities as we "welcome" Pete Rundquist as our 2023-24 President.  This should be a fun meeting because Paul and his gang will be using material supplied by Pete's wife Becky.  Please join us for the fun in person at Memorial Hall or via zoom.
