Our Meeting was called to order by President Ry-guy.
“…Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes…”  Once again the Weather Gods frowned on our Thursday, but we nevertheless enjoyed dazzling piano accompaniment courtesy of “Dutch” van Holsteijn, who led us through the singing of “America the Beautiful” (and later, “Smile”).   In spite of weather-dampened in-person attendance, the Air Force was well-represented with twenty-two “Zoomies”.
P. Ryno called for a moment of silence in memory of Rtn. Dan McGivern who passed away recently, and again out of respect for the people of Syria and Turkey, victims of last month’s earthquakes.  After, he again reminded the assembly of the upcoming District Conference on April 22/3.  There will be two (2) opportunities to plant trees that weekend, and there will soon be an online link available to allow attendees to sign up for other service projects that will be incorporated into the Conference’s agenda. Ry-guy also noted that our Club was out-in-front of other clubs in our District, owing to the work of our DEI committee.  Finally, he congratulated Rtns. Brianna Wills and Thais Winkleblack upon their inclusion in this year’s honors list for “Women of Influence” in our community.  You go, girls!
Rtn. Linda Farkas thanked all who dined at Stella’s on 2/22 and/or 3/1.  You ate and drank your way to a donation of $ 1,180 for our Club’s youth leadership development programs.   That’s something you can say grace over. Thank you, Stella’s.
Dr. Marty Scholtz, Vice President of Research at the UofI, sponsored by Rtn. Usha Balakrishnan.
