Our regular club meeting on September 14th will be held at the Glenview Public Libary, 1930 Glenview Road.  The library's executive director, Lindsey Dorfman, will present to us on censorship.  Visitors are welcome at all of our meetings.
At today's meeting the club collected clothing and other items for WINGS, an agency serving victims of domestic violence. Photo shows organizer Suzanne Lyhus with new club president Dee Santucci partway through the collection.
It was a proud night for Glenview Sunrise Rotarians as our own Mary Bak became governor of Rotary District 6440 for the 2023-24 Rotary year.  Dee Santucci took over as club president, Scoutmaster Daniel Bertholf of Troop 55 was honored and Rotarians Suzanne Lyhus and Ron Dake were awarded and thanked for their extraordinary service to the club and community.
A little rain wasn't enough to keep a group of intrepid Rotarians, Scouts and friends from gathering trash along Waukegan Road as part of the club's Adopt-a-Highway project.  All are welcome to join us by helping out with this semiannual program.
In conjunction with Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago, a team of Rotarians helped a homeowner with cleaning and organizing her fifth floor condominium, including cleaning her windows and screens.  The homeowner reported that it was "a miracle" and looks forward to enjoying her spruced-up surroundings thanks to Rotarian Ron Dake and his team.
Sleet, snow and hail didn't keep people away from the Glenview Park District's annual fish release.  Lots of kids came out and helped restock Lake Glenview. Video 
Club member Marcia Cebula and four other friends of the Rotary Club of Glenview Sunrise, along with a group of others, just returned from a service trip to Uganda where Rotarians helped out in a rural school.  Rotary offers many such opportunities.
Using proceeds from the annual Hero Hustle, our club contributes to Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook.  Club members also enjoy supporting YSGN's Study Buddies program by making and serving a meal to participants each month.
Glenview Sunrise Rotarians joined with the Rotary Club of Northbrook in its annual Coat Off Your Back campaign, bringing warm winter gear to people who need it.  Many of this year's items have been distributed to recent refugees who arrived without coats and other supplies needed to get through an Illinois winter.  Thanks to people throughout the community who donated these important things to help our neighbors face frigid temperatures safely.
The Rotary Club of Glenview Sunrise is supporting a project in northern Guatemala to bring safe water, sanitation and hygiene to the 85 families in a remote community, El Potrero.  Community members will be trained in the maintenance and governance of the system to ensure sustainability.  This is a cooperative project with the Rotary Clubs of Fort Collins, Colorado, and E-Club of Lake Atitlán-Panajachel and The Rotary Foundation in cooperation with Engineers without Borders, and will be completed for just over $50,000US. The community includes about 350 people who have raised some of the money to purchase the necessary land and who will provide unskilled labor for the tank and latrine buildout.
Rotarians regularly enjoy providing supper for the participants in Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook's Study Buddies program.  It's a way to have fun together and with the kids while getting everyone in the program ready to work that evening.
