The Illinois Club is one of the oldest university social clubs serving
the University and Champaign-Urbana community. The purpose of our Club
is to promote friendship and education, this purpose is achieved through interest groups,
campus tours, University of Illinois scholarship awards, and special events.
A Letter from the President...
I am Donna Offenbecher. It is my privilege to serve as
The Illinois Club President this year. My husband Paul and I
joined the Club about four years ago. During the past four years,
I've enjoyed gathering with new friends at CU4 Dinner, Wine Lovers and Club meetings;
discussing my latest book at Reads; learning Mah Jongg;
and getting my steps in at Walk and Talk.
The past year has been less than ideal. We had to adapt to
new ways of coming together in friendship. And we did it!
2021 promises life beyond the Zoom screen. Exact plans
for this year's events remain uncertain but we are sure that
our community will continue to come together in friendship.
We have planned some opportunities to meet outside this summer.
I hope you will come out and
join us for the fun and conversation.
A special focus this year will be on growing our community.
We encourage everyone to bring a guest to our events.
Do you have a neighbor or colleague that you think would be
interested in our Club? Ask them to join us. We'd love to meet
and welcome them. There will be incentives for introducing a friend to the Club.
Looking forward to another year of friendship and learning with you.
