Meeting Recap February 13
The meeting in the Community House was opened at 12:20 by President Marie Kuipers. This was followed by the pledge of allegiance led by Heather Higgins and then the Thought for the Day from Rich Lalley. Lunch was served at 12:25 and the meeting was re-opened at 12:40 with 26 members present.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: President Marie noted several things for later in the month.
Barb Tubekis said the Wilmette Rotary has an event tonight at the Kenilworth Club. She also noted the Volunteer Center has a new website and suggested we take a look.
Patti Van Cleave reported we will be sponsoring 5 RYLA teens this year, two each from New Trier and Regina and one from the WYO.
Joe Nash noted there will be a third KAH benefit at Little Ricky- details to follow.
HAPPY BUCKS: Barb T. said thanks for all the help on last week’s packing set-up.
Patti happily told us she is the new Ex. Dir. at the Winnetka Congregational Church.
DIG & GRIN: Terry Dason favored us with two quite humorous anecdotes for which she received several mild huzzahs.
SPEAKER- John Thomas introduced our speaker, Bill Hayes. After 25 years in business data research, Bill has recently founded Clear Path Partners as a vehicle to expand the use of renewable electricity. He is also actively involved with the Citizens Climate Lobby that promotes federal policy to address climate change.   His well organized presentation started with a brief discussion of climate change and the general scientific agreement that reducing carbon-based emissions is critical.   His second area was the need to put a price on carbon emissions so the market can be  an important force, in the western world, for reduction.   Lastly, he discussed sources of electricity that do not depend on coal or oil generation.
His talk took to 1:30 so unfortunately there was no time for Q&A  The meeting closed  at 1:31 after the lottery drawing and 4-Way pledge recitation.
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.
