Congratulations to all Elmbrook Rotarians on another great Spikes for Tykes extravaganza! We weathered the storm and had a great time with over 40 teams playing volleyball!

As always, there was great food and lots of good fellowship. Thanks to everyone who helped with set-up and take-down, who got the teams on and off the court on time, and those who cooked, served, and cheered on the teams. Congratulations to Tom Steinbach who was the winner of this year's Spikes Raffle, and thanks to John Allen for selling out of all his raffle tickets by twisting a few arms!
A big "Thank You" goes out to all those of you who sponsored a team or who solicited a team sponsor. If you did, there are extra 2019 Spikes long sleeve T-shirts for each of you; so make sure you pick one up at our Friday meeting. Extra T-shirts can be purchased by others for $5.00 each.
Watch your email for an upcoming date of our "Spikes Sponsor Thank-You Breakfast and Awards Ceremony." Please invite those who donated $500 and over to join us.
Thanks again to everyone! This is truly a team effort and couldn’t happen without the hard work of our committee chairs and everyone who volunteered their time. And, with your help, we were able to reach our fundraising goal of over $50,000!!
The next big event is the Elmbrook Rotary Club Changing of the Guard on Wednesday, June 26. It’s a great night to celebrate the Rotary year, thank those who served the club this past year, and look forward to the year ahead. Please plan to join fellow Rotarians—along with their spouses, significant others, and guests—for a fun evening at the Western Racquet Club later this month.
