Mary Ulrich, Peoria recalls "Mildred Arends had the first meeting in Peoria and it was a luncheon meeting, year unknown.  Janice Tellier, Springfield was the first paid membership coordinator.  There was a Treasurer from East Moline that kept records prior to Janice, however she did not provide us with the records when she left as Treasurer."

It is heavy heart that I report the passing of one of our honorary members, June Schumacher.  Jan 2012  More about June
