Dig and Grin:   Patti Van Cleave entertained us with a story from Facebook.
Speaker:   Becky Hurley, a long time Winnetka resident and a former member of the Winnetka Plan Commission, spoke on Winnetka Futures 2040.  Winnetka was an early adopter of a Comprehensive Plan for the Village starting with the first plan in 1920.  The Comprehensive Plan is meant to provide guidelines for the future real estate development of the Village.  Becky walked us through the  process of developing the 2040 Plan.  The last plan was created in 1999.  The Lakota Group will be managing the process.  History plus Tradition plus Innovation will generate the plan.  There are three steps in the process.  First, Analyze.  Bring together focus groups and get input from the Community.  Second, Visioning.  Think more about the information received and determine how that should translate into the future of the Village.  Third, Draft the Plan.  Put the ideas on paper and get further input from the Community.  It will be a long process, but an interesting process that will give guidelines for the Village decision makers for the next 20 years.
Give School Supplies to Peruvian Children

Winnetka-Northfield Rotarian Rik Borjesson will soon be traveling to Peru. While there, he will be visiting Pinchollo, the most remote village in the Peruvian Andes. 

Rik plans to bring school supplies to the local school. In such a poor region, the schools have very limited essential supplies for their students. 

Please make a difference in a child´s education by donating for their most essential school supplies. Pinchollo is the most remote village in the Peruvian Andes at 11,000 ft above sea level. The main source of income is farming, the median income in Pinchollo per family is estimated to be 2 dollars a day.

With only 10 dollars you can send one student to school with their most essential supplies. You can contribute to this effort here

• 6 large notebooks

• 1 set of 12 colored pencils

• 1 set of 12 colored markers

• 1 pair of scissors

• 1 bottle of glue and 1 roll of scotch tape

• 2 red and blue pens, 1 ruler

• 4 pencils with eraser and pencil sharpener.

• 1 set of playdoh

• 1 set of watercolors

• 100 sheets of colored paper

• 5 sheets of cardboard

• Pencil case

100% of your donation will be used for school supplies. Please give what you can to support our fellow Rotarian and friend and to support children's education.
