Mount Prospect, IL 60056
We had several guests join us today. Shelly Lawler from Window Art Bill Balling came from the Buffalo Grove club. He’s also the City Manager of Prospect Heights. And we also welcomed Greg’s brother and sister-in-law John and Amber Guarrine. Creations is our speaker.
Our speaker today was Bill Durkin, a motivational speaker and author of Strive to Survive Today. Bill talked about how people fail to thrive in today’s world, despite having an incredible range of advantages that previous generations couldn’t dream of. He cited a lack of positivity as the principle cause.
Today’s speakers were Nancy Filatre and Ann Marie Thomas from the Prospect Heights Library. They were on hand to talk about September being National Library Card Signup Month. They also brought a sample of the myriad of items that can be checked out from the library – beyond just books! They had games and puzzles for kids, movies for adults, and all sorts of electronic devices for people of all ages. The club seemed particularly interested in a device called the Watt Detective that patrons can borrow to help them find and eliminate wasted electricity.
Today we welcomed our three scholarship winners Kevin Morton, Daniel Niersbach, Alexandra Wilson and their families to our meeting.
