Elmbrook Rotary Club's (ERC) Changing of the Guard event will occur on Wednesday evening, June 29, at the Mitchell Park Pavilion in Brookfield. The “Outdoors” will open at 5:00 p.m. for social time and activities that include a 50/50 raffle and a wine pull. This is a business casual event, and it is suggested that you bring folding chairs because seating could be limited. A buffet dinner will be served by Bunzel’s Catering, and seating will be on picnic benches surrounding the pavilion or on your own chairs. The program, which begins at 7:00 p.m., will be inside the pavilion that is air conditioned. Multiple invitational emails have been sent to ERC members for registering the member and one guest. Please remember to register.
 
The online silent auction goes live at 12 noon on Wednesday, June 22, which is also when bidding begins. Lots of great items have been donated, and bidding is expected to be brisk! If you can’t wait to see the many awesome items, you can get a preview of them at https://www.32auctions.com/ElmSilAuct2022
