Annual Scholarship Luncheon
Happy Hollow Club
(1701 S. 105th St.)
Note early start time of 11:30 am
You must have a reservation to attend. 
 
Last week Michael Linder and Max Burbach served as Greeters.  Kevin Welsh gave the invocation. We had several announcements and presentations.  Dave Laferla introduced Erik Bird who talked about Saving Grace Food Rescue and how they take food at risk of being thrown away to provide meals to the homeless. The RISK bag was at $419 and Alan Stanek won a free lunch. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Last week Jeff Bakewell recognized Nick Jasa, Cindy Kinsler, and Ryan Keiser as Friends of Suburban Rotary for their donations of $2500 to our local Suburban Rotary Foundation. Our local Foundation supports a variety of projects including matching our District and Global Grants as well as the $50,000 annually in scholarships for students with disabilities. Congratulations and thank you!
We are conducting our annual Suburban Rotary Charitable Foundation fundraiser for the next several weeks. Our goal is 40K.  We ask every Rotarian to make a donation of any size to support all of our great projects.  Donors of $300 or more (pledge or cash) will be recognized as members of the President's Scholarship Circle.     Examples that your donations support are our global grants to Afghanistan and Togo, the homeless foot clinic, meal packaging, donations to veterans,  and support for Crestridge school. YOU make all this possible!   CLICK HERE TO DONATE ONLINE 
 
Thank you to those who have already donated or pledged support this year! (Scholarship Circle members are in bold)
 
Congratulations to Andrew Wesely- 2 years, and Ralph Williams- 9 years of perfect attendance! Presented by Angeline Larson last week.
