There will be no meeting on Monday, February 20 due to the Presidents' Day holiday.
 
Make plans now to celebrate Rotary's 112th birthday at a mixer at Troegs Brewing Company on Wednesday, February 22! The world's first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, was formed on February 23rd, 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney who wished to capture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth. We are calling this an informational mixer, so bring along non-Rotarian friends - we want to welcome them to join in living "Service Above Self".  We'll gather from 5-ish to 6:30 pm - just drop by for a few minutes or the entire time.  Our Troegs' mixers are always great fun!
 
Our next Monday meeting will be on Monday, February 27 at 12 Noon when we hear a program on Patient and Family Centered Care, presented by Christine Ewing.
Are you new to Rotary and want to learn more?  Or are you a seasoned Rotarian who wants to gain more from your membership?
