While the Rotary motto is "Service Above Self ", you'll find that Rotarians can be as social as anyone. We often get together outside of our club meetings or service projects to share valuable fellowship. This is where we learn more about each other and create lifelong friendships. Here is a photo of a recent dinner we shared at the Turf Room in North Aurora. Thirty club members and guests enjoyed a good meal, shared stories, and just enjoyed each other's company. 
 
 
Are you looking to find your place in the community, meet new friends, or reacquaint yourself with some old friends? Rotary might be just the group you're looking for. Especially if you want to include community service in the mix.
Under the able leadership of our Environmental Chair & President-Nominee Teri, we can confidently say that our first public shredding event was a success. We estimate that we served over 150 cars during the 3-hour event. A team of 10 Rotarians, 4 Interactors, 4 family & friends, 2 Kane County Sheriff Officers, and 11 Sheriff’s Explorer Post members helped make this a memorable morning. In spite of the rain! We think this could become an annual event. Thank you to all who worked hard to provide this valuable service.
 
Members of the Rotary Club of Batavia were joined by family and friends to pack meals at the NIFB. We are happy to report that in two short hours we packed 1,281 pounds of frozen pizzas. That translates into 1,068 meals. The club has a history of supporting the food bank and is happy to donate time to this impactful organization. A member of Feeding America, the Northern Illinois Food Bank is located in Geneva, IL. They provide 250,000 meals in 13 Northeastern Illinois counties. The NIFB partners with more than 900 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and youth and senior feeding programs to provide nutritious food and resources.

We are sad to share the news that our member Roland Treiber passed away on April 14. We last saw Roland on January 25th when he visited our weekly meeting along with his wife Barb, daughter Katie, and grandson Steve. What a blessing to have Roland and his family join us that morning.
 
Roland joined the Rotary Club of Batavia on November 1, 1987. At 35 years and 5 months, he was the third longest serving member of our club and the fourth longest serving Rotarian in our club. Roland served as Sergeant-at-Arms for quite a few years and is the author of the Member Induction ceremony we currently use.
 
We will miss Roland’s smile, his sense of humor, his love of Batavia, his commitment to Service Above Self, and most of all … his friendship.
