MAY 2004

Spring is finally here and summer is just around the corner! What a busy winter we have all had.  The alumnae chapter held a brunch in March at Hanssen’s Le Bakery.  Several members met for morning breakfast and conversation.  We welcomed a new alumnae to the area, Pat French.  Pat and her husband recently moved to Peoria to be closer to their family and she is going to be affiliating with us soon.  Welcome Pat!  In other member news, Betty Jean Steinbach is well on her way to the road of recovery from her broken hip.  She is currently staying with family,
but hopefully will be returning to her own home soon.  Congratulations also to Angela Loring and her husband Eric on the birth of their new baby boy, Kyle.  Everyone is home and doing great!  The Bradley Chapter is getting close to the end of the school year and we have our Senior Welcome and Danelia Janssen Scholarship performance scheduled for May 1.  In addition, we will also be discussing our officer elections for next year.  See below for all the details.  The event is a potluck, so hopefully, we will get a great turnout with lots of food.  It is not an SAI event unless we eat J  At the brunch in

March, the chapter decided to take a break and wait until fall before scheduling another recorder/choral performance.  All were in agreement that we really enjoyed the Christmas Botanical Gardens Performance and we definitely want to do that again.  Look for rehearsals to start in September for that performance.

I hope to see many of you at our Senior Welcome May 1!  The calling committee will be contacting you shortly.

Saturday, May 1, 11:00 AM, Senior Welcome/Potluck


Our next event is Saturday, May 1, 11:00 AM, in Dingledine at Bradley’s Campus.  Unfortunately, Constance Hall was already in use, so we will have the pleasure of hearing the Danelia Janssen scholarship performers in the concert
hall.  The event is a potluck, so please bring a dish to share.  Table service and lemonade will be provided.  Remember, that the Bradley Seniors will be joining us, so be sure to bring extra.  Activities that day include a formal meeting, election of

officers for 2004-2005 and scholarship performances.  We may also work in an affiliation.  Hope to see everyone there!
