Today's speakers were David Polakowski and Shannon Monyak from Services for Independent Living, Inc.  Headquartered in Euclid, near the Lake County border, SIL provides services to those who need help living independently.  They offer a wide variety of programming and services, from information and referral to transitioning people from a nursing home or institution back into the community.  The people they serve vary widely in age, as well, and currently range from 28 weeks old to someone over 90 years old.  The majority (51% or more) of the staff and board of the organization are living with some form of disability themselves.  SIL operates on an annual budget of about $800,000 and continues to grow and look for opportunities to expand programming to meet the needs of their population (e.g., they are hoping to begin a transportation program in response to prohibitive costs for their clients to take special transportation that can cost upwards of $100 just to get to and from the SIL offices).  This organization also offers a lending program, through which community members can donate and also borrow medical equipment that they need, such as wheelchairs, canes, and even hospital beds!  There is a lot of information to be learned about them - for more information please see their website:


With Identity Theft and "data mining" on the internet such a problem, it is best if we keep your name, home address, phone numbers, including cell numbers, and other personal information safe from those surfing the internet for information.  However, your trusted fellow Painesville Rotarians might want to contact you or check on the name of your spouse they just can't seem to remember now.  So with a password they can easily find those things out.

We are just trying to find the balance between easy information for you and hard to get information from those you don't want to have your personal information.

P.S. You can get and print a listing of all Rotarians and their contact info anytime you want (and you know it is updated to the latest we have), but sorry you can't forward a contact list from the bottom of the eBulletin (and therefore can't have it forwarded all over the internet).


Rotary Park (formerly called North Park) was renamed in 1996 after the local Painesville Rotary Club donated thousands of dollars and many hours of labor to revitalize and renovate this small neighborhood park. The park offers a ball diamond that is used by several youth leagues for practices. It also has a new play structure purchased with funds from the state Natureworks grant program. This 4 1/2 acre park is located off Hine Avenue.
