CUBA TOWNSHIP REMEMBERS ROBERT DUNK
Robert E. Dunk, former Cuba Township Trustee, passed away December 27, 2006. A retired captain in the U.S. Marine Corps and a fighter pilot and squadron leader flying in the South Pacific during World War II, Bob and his wife Ann made their home in Lake Barrington, raising 6 children here.
Bob served as a charter member of the Barrington Rotary club, remaining as an active member for 30 years. His service as Cuba Township trustee spanned the years from 1984 to 2002.
Former Cuba Township trustee, Stevenson Mountsier remembers Bob. “I always enjoyed visiting Bob and his wife Ann. He never wanted to talk about his health issues, but rather talked about what was going on in the world and how proud he was to be an American and how proud he was of his family.”
Bob stood out as an exemplary model of a good citizen. He was dedicated to providing service to his community. His commitment to community and family will be missed.

Cuba Township Trustee,
Robert E. Dunk
Cuba Township Trustee, 1984—2002
As a new year begins, some reflection on the year past is in order. The conclusion of 2006 brought some sad news to Cuba Township. Former Township trustee, Robert E. Dunk, passed away at his home on December 27, 2006. While all who knew Bob will mourn his passing, a recognition of his full life should be celebrated. Although battling illness in the past year of his life, Bob never lost sight of the importance of his family and country. He was a dear friend to the Township and his presence will be sorely missed.
A very positive note regarding the year past, is the contributions to the Cuba Township food pantry and CUBA CARES fund. While increasing numbers of Township families and individuals find it necessary to seek the assistance of the food pantry and financial assistance from the Cuba Cares fund, I am pleased to report that donations and contributions are at a record high. Our community continues to astound me with their unbridled generosity. Donations of non-perishable food items continue to be made year-round. With the help of Township resident Shirley Shaw, the CUBA CARES fund has been the recipient of many generous financial contributions. The Township is very greatful to all donors! Please see the pink insert inside this newsletter for information on the Have a Heart Food Drive benefiting Cuba and Barrington Township’s food pantries. The date is Saturday, February 10, 2007.
The Township food pantry is available to any Township resident indicating a need. Distributions are available every 30 days after an intake interview with one of the Township’s General Assistance Coordinators, Cheryl Tanaka and Kate Formichella. Financial Assistance is available to any Township resident indicating a need through the Cuba Cares fund. Assistance is available to a family or individual only every 12 months and is limited to health and safety situations involving maintenance of self-sufficiency, health concerns and issues relating to employment. An intake interview is also necessary for assistance through the Cuba Cares fund. For more information regarding either of these programs, please contact the Township office at (847) 381-1924. All information is confidential.
