Peoria Prelude


MAR 2004

I thought maybe spring was here until I woke up to this morning! Brrrr.  I am sure spring is out there somewhere.  The Rose Reception was once again a huge success.  Unfortunately, I could not be there, but thanks to Bronwyn Parkin and Priscilla Wilkins for hosting.  The Bradley chapter had a fantastic number of prospective new members turn out to learn about SAI and Semenya McCord, our Province Officer was able to join us as well.  We have even more activities coming up this spring.  The alumnae brunch is March 20, followed by the Senior Welcome and Daniella Janssen scholarship performers on May 1.  The Beta Gamma chapter at
Bradley is hoping to organize a Pampered Chef party as a fundraiser, so watch your emails and mailbox for more information.  The alumnae chapter is starting to think about a spring performance of the Chapter Recorder/Choral Ensemble.  We will be discussing rehearsal schedules and a performance time and location at our March 20 brunch.  If you cannot attend the meeting on the 20th, please let Shirley Cunningham or myself know if you would be willing to perform again this spring.  For those of you have not heard, Betty Jean Steinbach is in Proctor Hospital recovering from a broken hip.  She fell climbing the stairs to the choir loft at her church

about 10 days ago.  She is in room 305 and will probably be there a couple of weeks.  She is in good spirits and has had many visitors.  However, I am sure she would appreciate more.

Saturday, March 20, 8:30 AM, Alumnae Brunch


Our next meeting will be Saturday, March 20, 8:30 AM at Hanssen’s LeBakery.  Hanssen’s is located in the Metro Center, Peoria.  Each member will be responsible for purchasing her own breakfast and we will have a table reserved where we can
enjoy a little social time mixed with some chapter business.  We need to discuss a spring Choral/Recorder performance, rehearsal times and nominations for our upcoming officer elections.  This meeting is really a lot of fun since we spend most of

our time catching up with each other.  Hope to see many of you there!
