Vsitors introduced -- C.W. Moellenkamp, presiding in the absence of President Linda Borton, asked Mike Sweeney to make introductions:  we welcomed  Nick Mitzen (Nick made contact with membership chair, Joe Musolino, through our website), and our speakers, Nanette Sowa (also a Schaumburg Rotarian) & Julie Clausen.

Announcements  -- C.W.  said the Sr. Center golf outing reduced our attendance [A good cause, though, and more pizza for us ! ].  The only announcement was a reminder that about 100 tickets are still available for the Sox game 8/5 supporting Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.  You can order yours on the website, or by contacting Kris Niemann or Linda Borton.  If you can’t go yourself, you can donate your tickets to a veteran or buy extras for them too.

Birthday Announcements -- officiated by Bill Mahoney.  Celebrating were Bill Kmiecik, sponsored by Ron Crawford in 2007, and Jim Bertucci, sponsored in 2000 by Terry Ennes.  Also on the list due to a seeming clerical error was Bob (a.k.a., "Is-There-An-Extra-Piece-of-Cake") Paddock, but he had eaten his last month.  Also celebrating this month, though not here Thursday, are Jim Ryan and Jim Feddor.  Happy Birthday, fellow Rotarians; we're glad you're here...and that you had great sponsors!

Happy (for charity Fines) and an elucidating Quiz were offered by Fine Master Ron WalterNeil Scheufler was happy to announce an opportunity for members and friends to support an 8/3 fundraiser luncheon and outing sponsored by Arlington Park and the Gary Sinise Foundation supporting military and first responders…it’s the 20th anniversary of the movie Forest Gump, so this will be part of the theme.  For more information and tickets, go to/click the Arlington Park websiteBob Paddock was happy for a conversation with absent member Bob Morman: his spirits seemed high; he appreciates being remember, hoping the medical treatments will permit him to attend again soon.

C.W. was happy about his new position at Luther Village as a Sr. Consultant for the organizations' whole system, and about starting graduate school with the University of Arizona.  Congratulations and best wishes!  To read more about this change at Luther Village, click "More" below.

Speaking of "school", Fine Master Ron was elucidating on the subject of history.  Here are his comments and questions in the spirit of the events surrounding July 4: 

  1. In March 1776, General Washington and his Continental Army had the British surrounded at Boston.  Washington allowed the British to evacuate.  Who was in command of the British forces? 

  2. The American Navy was almost nonexistent in 1776.  John Paul Jones received his first command in May of that year.  What ship did Jones first Captain? 

  3. On July 2, 1776, twelve of the thirteen colonial delegations voted for independence.  Which delegation abstained?

  4. In September 1776, General Washington needed to know what the British were planning from their position on Long Island.  Nathan Hale, a captain in Knowlton’s Rangers, volunteered to penetrate the British lines.  What was Hale disguised as?

A new day and a new Rotary Year.  June 27 the 2014-2015 Board of Directors Installation Dinner was held at Rolling Green Country Club in Arlington Heights

"A new day and a new Rotary Year.On June 27 our 2014-2015 President, Linda Borton, was installed by Past District Governor Carlos FrÜm (photo to right), along with the other members of the board Board of Directors  The induction was part of the Installation Dinner held at Rolling Green Country Club in Arlington Heights. Highlights of the evening included especially meaningful speeches by Linda and and Past President Bill (see More below for Linda's complete text, and see additional story for Bill's).  Linda shared richly descriptive comments about her start in Rotary, how her Rotary experiences have changed her life through Rotary's sense of community and opportunity for service.

She went on to describer what she felt were "mission critical" goals for the year -- the club "remaining vibrant and attractive to new and younger members."  She asked newer members for participation and veteran members for "assistance, support and tolerance".

Our great thanks to 2013/14 Board Members for your service, and to the 2014/15 Board Members for your willingness to serve !

Our appreciation, also, to Rolling Green Country Club about their great venue, food and service.  Word has it, if you get a membership they'll also give good weather for your event or least on some days !  You can talk to them at (847) 253-0400 or

In his end-of-term speech...recalling his address from the start of his term...(Immediate Past) President Bill told of the reasons for joining, the reasons for continuing, and his perspective about a successful club and successful members.  He shared his experience benefiting from Rotary during a time of family difficulty.  He also spoke of the usefulness of asking and being asked to be involved, of the challenges of leadership, and of his appreciation of the club.

To read more about "chickens and pigs", "involvement and commitment", read Bill's moving, insightful speech by seeing "More" below.

Thanks, Bill, to you, your outgoing team, and your family, for a great year...and for being part of the Arlington Rotary family.
