Mead Junior High School began their official first day of school on Wednesday August 27th.  Elk Grove Rotary presented staff with a cake to get the year started on a sweet track.  The Club welcomed the teachers and administrative staff back and thanked them for all they do for our community kids!  Mostly, for the school's involvement or Interact and Mead Food Pantry.  

Pictured is Leigh Ferstein and Lily Smith, Mead Vice Principal.

As Lawrence Temfwe spoke to the Elk Grove Rotary Club about our club’s partnership in providing clean water to people in Mapolo Zambia, he wanted to “dance in gratitude.” 

Because of our partnership people will not be forced to depend on wells that are not deep enough to provide clean water. Over 800 children have access to this bore hole pictured here, and can drink clean water, be healthy and spend time in school. Martha Temfwe also shared how through Jubilee Center for only $35 a month children can be sponsored to enable them to get an education. Through our club, Lawrence has been able to form a partnership with the local Rotary club in Zambia, this could just be the beginning!  Thanks to the International Committee and all the supporting Rotarians that make great things like this happen.

Pictured above is Tuki Sathaye, Itasca Library Director, and Paula Sheffield, who serves on the Vocational Committee and the Itasca Chamber Board. Through Paula's and Tuki's business synergies, the Itasca Library generously donated hundreds of books that were given out to Elk Grove school children on Literacy Day.  The Elk Grove Rotary Club made a donation to Itasca Library in recognition of their support.  Members of the Elk Grove Rotary Club organize and participate in a variety of activities each year on Literacy Day, including donating new and used books to children and schools, reading to preschool children, and acting out short literacy-themed skits for local schools.

Rotary Fest is the largest fundraiser for the Elk Grove Rotary Club.  All of the community support for local and/or international projects, scholarships, and Mead Food Pantry (to name only a few) would not be possible without it.  The 5 day event is supported by our generous sponsors, giving volunteers, Club Rotarians, and many others. A wonderful evening was shared with dinner and our Club's gratitude to all that make the Fest a success.

Steve Pickett, originally from Indiana, has been an Elk Grove resident since 1986.  He is married and has 2 children.  He has been a club member since 2007.  Some of his contributions in the club include Rotary Fest Food Vendor Chair and Vocational Chair.  The Vocational Committee is responsible for the process of awarding thousands of dollars to local resident high school senors attending college or vocational schools the following fall. The committee is also responsible for Literacy Day in which Rotarians actually read story books to young age school children in the community and then donate books to the school.  Among many interesting personal facts about Steve is the fact that his older brother, Rod, is also an Elk Grove Club member.

Janina shows off her fancy new Chicago Black Hawks jacket.  The club presented the jacket to Janina as a token of our appreciation for the past year.  Janina is the Rotary clubs Exchange student from Finland.  Janina has spent the last year here learning about the American Culture.  Janina has seen alot of the area including downtown Chicago, Brookfield Zoo, Cubs Game, Hawks Games, Medevil Times, Disney on Ice, and the Chicago Sky Basketball game just to name a few.  The club was fortunate to have Janina for the past year and we were proud to have her represent The Elk Grove Rotary Club at all of the Rotary Exchange Student programs.
