Past Recent Rotary Activities
 
May 4th - Club members Elwood Walker, Jean Wlodarski, Bill Litman, Jim Slabe, and Jean McKenzie all lent a hand (or two) to assist the Backpack Foundation in packing the final weeks of school's bags to the 50 children who receive assistance each week.  What a great program that we are involved with these past few years - we will take a summer break and stat back up again with taking the donations to the school once per month - Thank you to Jean McKenzie and Dan Briceland for doing this throughout the school year on the club's behalf.
 
May 20th - Club members Dan Briceland, Elwood Walker, Wade Foltz, Jim Slabe, and Jean McKenzie (along with Marc Jablonski) put up all of our Flags for this year's participation in "Fly the Flag" program - Great job everyone - this is our only fundraiser and we appreciate all of your help.  We will enjoy seeing them fly proudly over the next several months until we take them down after Veteran's Day in November.
 
May 29th - Annual Brookfield Township Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony.  A huge thank you again to Dan Briceland for emceeing this event year after year.  Our club has been assisting the township officials for the past several years - waht a great honor and privilege to do this for our community.  We had three members of our Interact Club join our Rotarians in our walking unit for the parade.  Samantha Neral (former RYLA student) and Interact student read the poem"Memorial Day" and Jean McKenzie read "In Flander's Field" during the ceremony. Thank you to Elwood and Kathy Walker for participating in the day's activities as well.
