Today we heard about the photographic adventures of our own JIM FONDRIEST. Along with being a famed dental specialist, Dr. Jim has “developed” into a marvelously talented touring photographer, as anyone who visits his Facebook page will know. Jim displayed some of his nondental work and gave us their back stories. Thanks to Program Chair MARK DEWART.


LAST WEEK we learned about what’s new and happening in downtown Lake Bluff from two of our Club members, Village President KATHY O’HARA and Village Adminstrator DREW IRVIN. Lots of new development and opportunity for community input and involvement! Check out the Village website for more! Thanks to TERRY DESMOND for the program.

NEXT WEEK we hear TOM DICKELMAN introduce himself and his interesting topic of “On Starting Stuff,” recently presented at the High School’s TEDx conference.

The BOARD OF DIRECTORS met last week and started off by congratulating DAVID BARKHAUSEN and everyone involved with our Youth Breakfast for a very successful event (which will be shown on Cable TV Channel 19 shortly). We awarded a vocational scholarship to JUSTIN MILLER at the High School to attend Auto Mechanic classes at CLC next year. TIM NEWMAN is stepping down from the Board to concentrate on his new appointment as Lake Forest Alderman, so we’ll be looking for someone to take over his Fundraising and Public Relations responsibilities. Our new Youth Chair CAROL BUSS will be looking for host families for our incoming male student from Denmark.
