Auburn Interact Club
     The Auburn Interact Club held a party for their seniors.  Rockford Rotary provided fruit, cheese and crackers, and a veggie tray.  The Interact Club had a very active year and really appreciated the help from Rockford Rotary.  Warren Heinke was the liaison to the club.  Amanda Becker and Julie Clark were the faculty advisors.
May 18th - Lynn Stainbrook
     On May 18th, Executive Director Lynn Stainbrook gave us an update on the construction of the new library.  This included artist's drawings of what the different areas would like when completed.

Katrina and Peter Olson are pictured on the right and Elaine Herschenberger is on the left.
Elaine is the person who gave the presentation and Katrina is the one who set up the meeting.
And of course, no gathering is complete without food and fellowship.
New Member - Uma Srivastava
     At our May 18th meeting, President Eric introduced Uma Srivastava as the newest member of Rockford Rotary.  Uma is a retired psychiatrist and was sponsored by Kathy Kwiat-Hess
     We would encourage each of our members to make an effort to meet Uma and welcome her to Rockford Rotary.
Burdette Anderson Scholarship Winners
Burdette Anderson Scholarship Winners
     Since both of our scholarship winners were not present for the High School Recognition program due to conflicting obligations, we are presenting them this week.
     The winners of the 2-023 Burdette Anderson Memorial Scholarship are Jocelyn Kuntz from Guilford High School (left center) and Kyan Muhammad from Auburn High School (right center).  Susan Vetrono (left) and Linda Oshita (right), daughters of Rotarian Burdette Anderson, awarded the scholarships.  Both students will attend Northern Illinois University in the fall.  Congratulations.
