We are so fortunate to have in our club members who regularly connect our suburb with a global community. In 2005, Werner had the honor of welcoming (at O'Hare Airport) Madame Wangari Matthai of Kenya, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and keynote speaker of the Rotary Centennial Convention in Chicago.


Madame Mathai recently passed away from cancer, but this photo is one of Werner's fondest Rotary memories. Note that the sign he is holding now graces our weekly meeting at the Golf Center!

We were delighted to welcome Werner back at lunch last week, recovering nicely from his heart surgery.
