A Note from the President...


Greetings -

It was great to see so many of you at our holiday celebration at the President's House. A round of applause to all those who made the evening so special. Thank you to Meeting Managers Steve & Gale; to Lori for the festive name tags; to Dena and all the hard working staff & students at the President's House; to Tim & Roberta Killeen for welcoming us into their home; and to Rick and the Uni High madrigals for that extra sprinkle of holiday cheer.

Our next meeting is on Saturday, March 4th for our scholarship luncheon. As you read in our November E News, we had a record-breaking +160 applicants this year. Given the large number of applicants this year, we wanted to again make an appeal and provide instructions on how you can make a gift to the club's scholarship fund in the SAVE THE DATE: SCHOLARSHIP LUNCHEON section below. Gifts to the fund number provided are immediately available to award to UIUC students. It would be great to collect enough donations to help one more student this year. Thank you for supporting UIUC students in finishing their undergraduate degrees.

Happy new year to all and safe travels to those exploring and seeking warmth beyond the Illinois borders this month. I cannot wait to hear about your adventures when you return.

Cheers,
Donna Offenbecher
