January Meeting Summary

Patty Walters from DSC
We had a very well attended meeting on Thursday.  We'd like to thank Patty Walters from Developmental Services Center in Champaign for being our guest speaker.  I don't think most of us realized the range of services that DSC provides our area and what some of their challenges are.

Next month--that's February already--Tim Manard, Scout Executive from the Prairielands Boy Scouts Council will be our guest speaker.  

And hopefully by then, I'll have a few items to show you with our embroidered logo on them that members can order.

Announcements Since December Meeting

I thought I'd share a little news with you since the last meeting:

1.)  Secretary Greg Knott reports our membership is up to 42 members!  That's excellent.  I think we were shooting for a hundred members in the first year, so we're well on our way.

2.)  Tim Manard, Scout Executive from the Prairielands Boy Scouts Council will be our guest speaker in February.

3.)  Greg Knott also mentioned that he will be going on a shopping trip with Nick Sullivan from the ROTC to spend the $300 the Illini High Twelve raised on supplies for the care packages to our troops overseas.  Thanks again for everyone's generous contributions--it's a great effort, and I think we were all happy to assist.

4.)  I found a company right here in Champaign (Weiscamps) that will set up our logo for jackets, sweatshirts, etc.  I'll be talking to them this week.  Once I get it set up, you'll be able to order whatever you want (whether it's a hoodie or a sweatshirt) directly from Weiscamp's website.

Hope to see you at our January Meeting on January 17th.
