About The April Meeting

Illini High Twelve logo by Mitch Duszynski
We had a really good meeting yesterday.  The State of Illinois High Twelve President, Roger Carson visited our chapter.  He spoke to us about High Twelve, told us a little bit about the philanthropic side of High Twelve, the Wolcott Foundation, and welcomed the Illini High Twelve to the organization. We will officially be chartered at our May meeting.  

Another interesting part of the meeting today, was that our chaplain Mitch Duszynski has been working on designing a logo for Illini High Twelve.  He's got some more work to do on it, but he shared with us today his concept so far, and it was received enthusiastically.

We also voted in three new members today, bringing our total membership to 32!  Not too bad after just a few months!

We'll see you all again next month!   And remember, next month, we'll be receiving our charter!

News About Our Charter!

As you all know, we've been going through the process of chartering the Illini High Twelve, and we've recently been informed that we're just about through the process.  Both the Illinois State High Twelve and the High Twelve International are very pleased to have a new and enthusiastic group join their ranks--as a matter of fact, we may just have very special guests joining us for both our April, and May meetings.

Plan on trying to take a long lunch in May if you're able--it's looking like that is when High Twelve International will be coming to present Illini High Twelve with our charter.  

I like to thank you all for helping to get this off the ground.  We've got a great mix of members, and I know our monthly meeting is something we all look forward to.  As charter members of this club you should all be very proud.  It's not every day you get an opportunity to be involved in creating something that could very well last longer than we will.  We're just getting started, but I see great things ahead.  

Thanks again,

Todd E. Creason
