Congratulations to our new officers: President Sally Evans, Secretary Frank Struwe, and Events Coordinator Al Wallace, all elected at today’s meeting.  We had a great turnout… I think the free food had something to do with that.

2014 MIJC events have now been incorporated into our online calendar.  A link to download a PDF of the 2014 schedule is also located on that page.  I try to keep our online schedule as updated as possible, but sometimes nobody goes on a trip or dates and times get changed because of weather or conflicts.  Always visit the forum to see what’s going on closer to the event date.

Our next event isn’t until January 11th, which is the Annual Banquet.  It will be held at the American Legion in Pekin at 7pm.  If you’ve already filled out a reservation form and submitted your $5 per attendee at the meeting, you’re good to go.  If not, watch this space for a PDF download link coming soon.  Otherwise, download print and mail this form to Jill with a check.  You must RSVP by January 1st so we know how much food to get.  Also, it is a potluck, so bring a side dish or dessert to share.

If you’re a potential new member and you just want to be part of the fun, sit tight.  We don’t have any outings until it gets warmer, so you’re not missing anything.  Come on out for our first regular meeting in February (Feb. 1st, 12:00pm, EP’s Timeout in East Peoria) and you can join then.
