Review for Breakfast Rotary Char Fdn, S Barrington, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A friend of mine introduced me to the Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club (Breakfast Rotary Charitable Foundation) 7 1/2 years ago. I had no intention of joining the club - just volunteering. But once I met the club members, and started volunteering in ways that touched my heart, I told my friend "I must join this club!" Rotary's motto is "Service Above Self" and it is reflected in the club's members. They are such loving & giving people. The club has done amazing things for the community, like installing lightning detection in all parks and school fields. Additionally, I have made life long friends. Rotary has truly changed my life.

If anyone is interested in giving back, hearing the weekly speakers (which have opened up the world to me), and meeting incredible people, I highly recommend the Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club.

Review for Barrington Area Council on Aging, Inc., Barrington, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

BACOA helped me tremendously when I turned 65. They helped me making decisions about Social Security, Medicare - both parts B and D. Walked me through the process. And all for free.

I've also participated in their luncheons and Meals on Wheels. A great organization! Especially during the pandemic. Providing on-line programs. I can't say enough about them!!!
