Fellowship Event in Evanston

The PDGs Fellowship is sponsoring an event in Evanston on the last weekend of June that will begin with a reception on Friday evening, 24 June, and end on Saturday afternoon, 25 June. The program is still being developed, but it will be educational with several Rotary Senior Leaders in attendance. So please place it on your calendars, and we will send the details to you in a month or so!


Council on Legislation Afterglow Party

The PDGs Fellowship sponsored an afterglow party at the conclusion of the Council on Legislation in downtown Chicago, on Friday, 15 April. The event included the Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise tour of Chicago on Friday afternoon at 4 PM and then dinner together on Friday evening, before the delegates and observers headed home on Saturday morning. They experienced the "top tour in Chicago and one of the top ten tours in the U.S." according to TripAdvisor users. The Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise is a must for out-of-towners and Chicagoans alike. The volunteer tour guide —called docent—interpreted more than 50 buildings along the Chicago River. Participants found out how Chicago grew from a small settlement into one of the world's largest cities in less than 100 years. In 90 minutes, they got the real story on Chicago architecture and its history.

Following the river cruise participants experienced more fellowship by enjoying dinner with other PDGs in small groups at a choice of restaurants within a short walk of the Chicago Marriott Hotel (COL location).

The afterglow events attracted about 150 for the river cruise and 125 for the fellowship dinners. More information about the events will be posted soon.

Sao Paulo Convention Booth

We will be hosting our usual booth at the House of Friendship to promote membership and to provide a convenient meeting place for current members. Volunteering at the booth is a wonderful way to meet and greet fellow Rotarians. It needs to be staffed with two people on duty for a total of 48 hours while the House of Friendship is open, and we are asking our members to work two hour shifts. Therefore, we will need about 48 volunteers to staff the booth, and we hope you will lend your assistance. Please click here and enter your name and indicate the times you will be available to serve in the booth. If you have any questions, or you need to make a change after you enter your choice of times, please contact Bruce Baumberger.
