Most people only think about personal security the moment they need it! Unfortunately in some cases, it may be a little too late! Thankfully there are individuals like Joe Rosner who are experts in Self Defense and Personal Security and are more than willing to share their knowledge to help make society potentially safer as a whole. 
 
 
 
What another great year! With over 200 children on hand and over 300 people total, including the parents and guardians, our 2015 FREE Holiday Movie event was a big success! The children were well entertained with the great activities, crafts, and prizes provided by our club and the staff at the Jerri Hoffmann Child & Family Center! Santa was also on hand to visit and take pictures with the children. Thanks to all the club members and staff at the Jerri Hoffmann Child & Family Center who made it a very entertaining and festive morning for everyone involved. Check out the event photos in the 2015 FREE Holiday Movie photo album!

Another successful year! On "Giving Tuesday" we conducted our 7th annual Operation Warm program providing 300 new winter coats to local children in need. With the help of the Boys & Girls Club of Dundee Township we made our way through 5 local grade schools to distribute various amounts of coats to select children at each school. Additional coats were given to the District 300 staff to have on hand and provide it to a child when it is really needed. Check out the full set of photos in the 2015 Operation Warm Photo Album. Additional photos taken by the Boys & Girls Club staff can be found via this link here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/120355573@N07/albums/72157661277500679
   
 
 
 
For the past 4 years we have had the great opportunity to volunteer at the community annual Shop with a Cop event coordinated by the Carpentersville Police Department. Each year the event has grown and with it so has the need for volunteers. This is a great annual program and even better chance to give back. The families and children who are selected to participate leave feeling very blessed and grateful which carries over to all those involved. Learn more at http://shopwithacopdundeetownship.org/
 

 
 
Over the past year Alvaro and his family in El Vaquero SLP, Mexico have really made the Super Adobe house we built for them their own.

With over 170 runners our 3rd annual RaceWay 5K Fun Run & Walk was a big success and helped raised thousands of dollars for our charity organization! The weather was as good as it could of been with the storms and hot temps that were lurking the night before.
 
It was an early morning for our members and volunteers as we prepared for the gathering of the races. Sure enough the showed and we were well on our way to another successful event! 8am the horn sounded and the racers were off with the "formula 1" racers in the front of the pack and the "go cart" racers not far behind! 17 minutes later our winner crosses the finish line with all the runner ups soon to follow! Before we knew it we were awarding the winners and celebrating the individual victories!

While the bombing will be investigated, one thing is clear:...
