Ruelene and Chuck Aarup hosted the event. Eight Northern Illinois couples, plus two former member couples, met at Paul Ruth Hall for a pot luck luncheon. Attendees were: Aarups, Carligs, Dixons, Gustafsons, Jamisons, J. Matkovichs, R. Matkovichs, Morrisons, Sullivans, and J. Wagnon. Many shared news, and their travels during the past year. Dwight told of the changes in the club’s website the Electronic Communications Committee is redoing. The weather was sunny and warm and friendships shared.

Carol and I visited the Sarasota Rally for one day and attended the Region 5 dinner with Northen Illinois members: the Jamisons, Wagnons and the Carligs. This year the dinner was at an Amish restaurant and was very good.  Fifty Region 5 members  attended the dinner. Participation at the rally continues to decline, with 306 attending this year.
