September Meeting Summary

We had a great September meeting yesterday, and we'd like to thank Lieutenant Commander Guy Snider (RET) from the United States Coast Guard for coming and talking to us about the September 11th attack on the Pentagon.  It was certainly something I'm sure we'll all think about and remember for a long time to come.

A reminder that Illini High Twelve does have polo shirts available through our store at CafePress.  They look really nice with Mitch's logo on them, so be sure and order one--about $2 of each shirt purchase will go to our charity, the Wolcott Foundation.

I hope everyone enjoyed the meeting as much as I did.  We'll see you again next month.

September Meeting--Mark Your Calendars For This One!

We have have a great guest lined up for our September meeting.  Our guest will be Retired Lieutenant Commander Guy Snider, United States Coast Guard.  He was at the Pentagon during the September 11th attack, and he'll be giving us a very timely presentation--he's not telling his own story.  From what I understand, he's going to tell a story about someone that participated in the events that day.  I'm very much looking forward to his presentation.  I think it's something we'll all remember.

And just a reminder.  The Illini High Twelve is a Masonic organization, but you don't have to be a member of the Illini High Twelve to join us for lunch.  Just come and have lunch with us.  And you don't have to be a Mason to join us for lunch--our doors are open to spouses, friends, family, co-workers... whoever you'd like to bring along.  Last month, our meeting was called to order when a five-year-old girl, the daughter of one of our members, rang the bell.  This month, I'll be bringing a friend from work--not a Mason.  But there is a strict dress code--come as you are. 

This speaker was lined up for us by our 1st Vice President, Bro. Brad Cronk.  I'm sorry, that's incorrect.  It's The Illustrious Brad Cronk, 33°.  Be sure and be amongst the first to congratulate him on receiving that tremendous, and well-deserved honor in Cleveland, Ohio two weeks ago.
