This week we met MICHAEL NERHEIM, Lake County State’s Attorney, who told us about the Children's Advocacy Centers of Illinois. RICK LESSER was our host. Next week JEFF HEINEN, Co-CEO of Heinen's Grocery Stores (including Lake Bluff), will be here to tell us about “Operating a Grocery Chain.” DREW IRVIN is our Program Host.


We welcomed our newest Club member, ELLEN YOUNG, inducted at last week’s meeting by President Elect JAYSON KAUS. Ellen is a returning Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Rotarian, having been a member of the Noon Club. She’s also had a distinguished Rotary career since, just finishing up her tenure as District Governor this past Summer. We also welcomed back ANN TRANDAI, returning from a leave of absence from the club.

PROJECT WARM turned out to be a terrific success this year. We had KEVIN STEVENS and ANGELA RAMIREZ from the North Chicago Rotary Club here last week to present us with their $1000 check as part of the effort, and we saw “Thank You” notes and posters from both North Chicago and Highwood Nuestro Center kids who were recipients of this year’s project. Club thanks to DAVE SCHAFER, his committee, and everyone else who made this happen... especially those who donated so generously with their Happy Dollars in September, October, and November!
