Dig N Grin: Felicia shared two very funny jokes.

Speaker: Our Speaker was Winnetka Detective Jeremy Walton, who shared some of the latest con jobs and scams that we must avoid.  There were numerous questions at the end of his presentation; we should have him attend regularly with updates, to keep us informed and aware.  His powerpoint is here:
Patti won the raffle ticket pull and drew the three of diamonds. Queen Marie adjourned the meeting at 1:30 by inviting us to recite the 4-way test.
Give School Supplies to Peruvian Children

Winnetka-Northfield Rotarian Rik Borjesson and his family 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.
