Joel offers up these little quotes on our meeting agenda.

 

What's interesting is a man with no facial hair is less intimidating than a man with facial hair, and a man who is bald is more intimidating than a man with hair.

Bryan Cranston

 

Does Joel think he is intimidating? LOL!

 

There will not be a morning meeting on September 24th. Instead we ask that as many members help with the exchange student interviews that evening at Waubonsee Community College

 

Peace Corps volunteer Jessica Skeesick stopped in to tell us about her mission in Costa Rica. Jessica will be in Costa Rica working with disadvantaged youth who have many obstacles working against them. Peace Corps volunteers must spend 27 months abroad. The Peace Corp Act declares;

“To promote world peace and friendship through a Peace Corp, which shall make available to interested countries and areas men and women of the United States qualified for service abroad and willing to serve, under conditions of hardship if necessary, to help the peoples of such countries in meeting their needs for trained manpower.”

Many clubs have given to this cause as an international project and our club also look into this. If you wish to contact Jessica directly you may do so by email at jessica_skeesick@yahoo.com

 

Laura and Lorenz gave us their updates from last week. Both attended the presentation at East Aurora High School on Friday morning. Saturday Laura spent time with her 2nd host family in Madison, WI (hope she had on Bears apparel) where the toured the city and then did paint ball. She had the bruises to prove it. Lorenz spent time with his host families grandparents who were very interested in hearing all about Switzerland.

 

Please keep our exchange students in mind when you are doing something fun or interesting, we are all their hosts. You can find contact information for both Laura and Lorenz by signing in to the website and looking under “Member Directory.”

 

Happy Birthday Harriet!

 
 
 
 

The club serenaded Harriet with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday this morning.

Prior to IMSA taking over the campus on Indian Trail, Sue’s class was the first and only 4 year class to go through the 2nd campus of West Aurora High School.

As a family the Debolt’s have travelled on many family vacations including Hawaii, Gettysburg, the Dakota’s and many other places.
