chuckOn January 15th, our meeting was all about networking and relationship building.   Club members were encouraged to talk about themselves, their businesses, or charities in which they participate for a few minutes to let the club know what they have been up to. The exercise was to increase awareness and possibly generate leads and support for ventures in which we are involved.

Several members participated, Roelif Loveland talked about Rudy-a really cute dog he is fostering for IVAR.  Rudy needs a good home, one that is at least as good as where he is now. So, if you know anyone, call Roelif!

Bev Malooley talked about the Small Business Association and explained how she can help people who are looking to start a new business, and also touched on her Real Estate business.

Matt Merboth invited us to participate in the upcoming Trivia Night which benefits the LaSalle Public Schools Excellence Foundation.

Tania Prystash is chairing a fundraiser for Honor Flight, who spoke to our club in November.  Honor Flight sends WWII Veterans to Washington DC for the day to see the WWII Memorial. 

Mary Chambers talked about financial securities and her new venture into Jazzercise.  She will start teaching locally in March and invites us all to come work out with her.

Kelly Klobucher talked about her new business venture as a marketing and public relations consultant.

Kevin Mason reminded us that people who join clubs simply for the purpose of generating business leads, typically are not successful.  It is the relationships that are built through genuinely working in Rotary, and other clubs that lead to success in business and within the club. (Kevin said it much more eloquently!)

Our club was reminded again today how blessed we are to have Chuck Mueller as our longest standing member.  As you know, Chuck has had perfect attendance at Rotary for over 40 years-since he was club president in 1969.  He has traveled the world, and always visited a club in the places he traveled to "make up" the meeting he was missing back home.  He is a veteran of WWII and Korea.  At today's networking meeting, Chuck talked to us about how he came to serve our country--twice, the boys he served with, and the event that lead him to decide to become a Funeral Director and help families through their darkest days.  For so many reasons, Chuck stands as an inspiration to us all, every week.
