John Thomas got the meeting started at 12:15, with 34 of 58 members in attendance. The first subject was Kids Against Hunger. We must raise $10000.00 as our share of a $30000.00 donation to this very deserving cause. After successfully leading this event for many years, Heidi is looking for a replacement to chair this in the future.
Barb Tubekis  thanks us for our support with the Volunteer Center's MLK day last Monday. What a great thing she is doing helping people to link up or volunteer for one of many services and organizations that could use their help!
Karen Lawrence told us a little about her rug business, Village Carpets, in Hubbard Woods, at 924 Green Bay Road.
Our speaker was Nancy Rotering, who has been endorsed by Dick Durbin, the fire fighters Union, The National Woman's Caucus and many more.
She has a fascinating bio.  She is Mayor of Highland Park and she is a go-getter of the best order.  And is running for Congress. My write up is not doing her justice.
Keep your sunny side up!  --Mike
