The annual ERC Changing of the Guard Dinner & Silent Auction is scheduled for  June 26 at the Western Racquet Club in Elm Grove.  Deadline to register was Wednesday, June 19, 12:00 p.m. If you missed the deadline, contact Linda Edelstein immediately to see if you can be added to the 124 persons already registered for this gala event. This Friday, June 21, is the deadline for submitting donations for the Silent Auction.
 
The event will begin with social hour at 5:00 p.m. and dinner at 6:00 p.m. Club funds will pay for the participation of each ERC member and one guest; however, there will be a cash bar for cocktails.
 
The Silent Auction will once again feature a variety of items that will appeal to everyone – from wine baskets and weekend getaways, to tickets for sporting events and a whole lot more. Remember that all amounts raised in the Silent Auction go towards our annual Spikes for Tykes fundraising; so please take part and contact Kathy Becker or Bonnie Bertram if you have questions or anything to donate for the auction.
 
Click the following links for access to the documents for the Silent Auction. The Solicitation Letter can be used to request donations. The Silent Auction Donation Ideas handout provides a list of possible donation items. The Silent Auction Donation Form should be used to submit an item for bidding. And, the ERC Charitable Contributions PDF provides a listing of the organizations supported by ERC during Rotary Year 2017-2018.
 
The evening will also involve the installation of 2019-2020 Elmbrook Rotary Club and Elmbrook Rotary Foundation Officers, the celebration of our new Paul Harris Fellows, and other recognitions and awards. 
 
Finally, as in the past, this event will take the place of our regular weekly meeting; therefore, we will not meet on the following Friday morning, June 28.
